I love Jaffur wines and the young lady leading us through the tasting experience was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Great experience.

This winery has been included in the "101 Best Wineries in the U.S." news article more than once and for good reason. The tasting room is conveniently located in downtown Santa Barbara. All their varietals, red and white, are excellently crafted and affordably priced. The...More

This is exactly the type of winery that we love ... one that worries first and foremost about their wine and doesn't put as much emphasis on their tasting room. Every wine tasted here was superior to other tastings in Santa Barbara and the Santa...More

Don't come here expecting very comfortable wine-tasting experience. This is a working wine production warehouse. The wines and the tasting experience was however excellent. You stand around a collapsible table sampling and discussing their wines with a very gracious hostess. Even met the recently retired...More

Jaffurs is the preeminent winery in Santa Barbara, really no question on that one. They're also one of the very top quality producers in the whole of Santa Barbara County. They aren't the oldest winery around, (though at 20+ years they're not exactly noobs) they...More

Wine tasting is held in same warehouse where wine is produced and stored. Tight quarters so I suggest visits on weekdays or off hours to avoid a crush. Good wines especially syrahs. Was served by owner and winemaker.

I have enjoyed Jaffurs for years, but this was my first time to visit their facility. If you are looking for a fancy winery with all of the lovely gardens, gift shop and cellar tours, then go elsewhere. Jaffurs does not offer that. They literally...More

The location itself is a warehouse, in a mixed residential-commercial neighborhood. Why would anyone come here? Easy - world class wine. Go to Los Olivos and Santa Ynez for the beautiful atmosphere and and the fun of a wine-tasting trip, but Craig Jaffurs' wines are...More

This small little wine shop is all about the wine and they really know how to make great tasting wine. Nothing fancy about the tasting room but with wine this good you soon forget that you're not in a glamorous room. We had a nice...More

Jaffurs is my absolute favorite in the area. They specialize in exceptionally made rhone varietals and we enjoyed everything we tasted. Best of all, the winery staff are all very knowledgeable and happy to answer any question. We took a few bottles home and will...More
