Although this winery lacks an expansive outdoor garden area like many others, the tasting room is lovely with a large picture window overlooking the Sisquoc River Valley and another overlooking the barrel room. Cambria wines rarely disappoint and the staff is friendly and helpful.

I've reviewed Cambria before. It makes some of my favorite wines. But one thing I find impressive about visiting the winery is that they keep re-inventing their wines. They try different techniques. You can really only try these special versions of your favorite wines by going to the winery. And the servers there are so special ... adding depth to... More

I live nearby and have visited virtually all of the wineries in Santa Barbara County. Hands down, Cambria Winery has the best American style Pinot Noir in California. It's a little out of the way, but worth the trip to find it.

I'm not a huge red wine drinker and that's what they focus on so I didn't find much that blew me away. However, their viognier was so good I bought a bottle, later I wished I bought more.

Overall this place is nothing special. The tasting room is small and the wines we tasted were really terrible. Maybe it was just a bad year for their vineyards but we won't be going back. With so many other great wineries along the Santa Ynez wine trail you should skip this one.

This winery is a little off the beaten track, but well worth finding. The tasting room has windows into the actual winery and is a very pleasant room. The staff person was very friendly and informative. The wine that we liked and bought several bottles of was the Viognier, a variety not so well known, but can be excellent as... More

We have enjoyed Cambria's wines for years, especially their chardonnay (the fact that their address is on Chardonnay Lane should be a clue about their signature wines), but never managed to make it up the hill. Today we were at Ken Volk (absolutely not to be missed) and decided, what the heck, we're in the neighborhood. It was a wonderful... More

The Service: Wonderful~ We went on Thursday, no crowd at all. We had 110% attention from the staff... like a private tasting event! She is super knowledgeable about wine and very informative tasting lesson too. The Tasting Room: The tasting room has beautiful view. There is small outdoor patio seating area with nice furniture. Inside the tasting room, there are... More
