A great set up, with knowledgeable staff to guide through the tasting. Super range of varietals, and elegant tasting room. Would have loved for food to be available too, but apparently a local law precludes vineyards from offering even snacks!

Gainey was one of our top choices when my girlfriend and I were visiting the area and wanted to do a day of winery touring. It was our second stop. Look online for tasting deals. It's always good to save money... or at least put...More

I've been on a few wine tours, but Gainey Vineyard was by far the best. The tour begins in the vineyard, where you learn about the grapes and the harvesting. You move on to see where the grapes are processed and stored, then into the...More

Went here on a wine tour outside of Santa Barbara. Great host who guided us through the wines, and the wines were absolutely amazing. Too bad we cannot buy the wines here in Sweden.
