Very much enjoyed the wines here.

There are actually two Foxen tasting rooms. Make sure you hit them both. They're not far apart and they're related. Wonderful wines!

There are two tasting rooms for Foxen, the Shack and the main winery. The Shack has the address of 7200 so you'll see it called that as well. We went to the main winery because it had more pinot noirs on their tasting list. Foxen Canyon was a bit out of our way since we were coming from Santa Barbara,... More

In a funky roadside shack we had the best wine of the 18 vineyards we visited. Great friendly service and all the wines were great. We joined the wine club (only 6 bottles per year) and everyone in our group bought at least a couple of bottles.

There are actually two Foxen Vineyards. We went to 7600 Foxen Canyon and not the Shack. They were not busy at all. They had 3 attendants serving two groups. The red haired female attendant, I learned is a new employee who has been warned to be nicer to their customers. She has not learn that lesson. She was extremely rude... More

If you love wine and a good time you must go to Foxen winery. We stopped at the shack and then went to the winery and then went back to the shack for more fun and wine! What a fun place! The whole place is so friendly and accommodating.

Must try the original tasting room for reds. All of the Reds we Tasted were great! We came from Santa Maria so it was not too far. However it can feel far coming from Los Olivo area. There are two different tasting rooms not too far from each other.

One of my favorite Santa Barbara County wineries. Check out both locations on Foxen Canyon road for different experiences. The people are friendly and very educated on their product, and the product is always outstanding. My wife and I love Santa Barbara syrahs and Foxen does them right. They do lots of other stuff well too, but in my opinion... More

I love Foxen. The wine is extraordinary. Of all my wine memberships, I hoard this wine the most. Set on the beautiful Foxen Canyon Road, bluebirds fly around your car like a disney cartoon. The Shack is my favorite with an open tasting room that allows you to see and smell nature around you. A must visit for the Santa... More

Great Wines at this boutique winery. Bordeaux wines can be found at the shack while the Burgundy wines are at the new location. Charming and quaint with knowledgable staff.
