We happened upon this winery while taking a quick ride into town. I don't think it would have been a "destination stop" for us, but the bartender was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable, other patrons were interesting and fun, and the wine was fine. Place could use an update. Maybe they don't want to change because of the familiarity to the... More

This was in the movie Sideways and the popularity took off. Now have two tasting bars, but the wine is crap. The other problem is, a lot of limos full of drunk young people arrive all throughout the day. They are more about partying.

I've been to a lot of wineries and we came here because of the movie. I have to say I was not impressed. It was ok but there is way better places in the area!

This winery was less attractive and fancy than Bridlewood, which is built in the mission style with lovely grounds, but I liked the wine better at Kalmyra. We had the white flight and liked almost all of them, particularly the Sauvignon Blanc. The Chardonnay they gave us as a bonus was also very good. At the end, the woman who... More

Nice tasting room. Very friendly staff. My wife and I both liked the 2014 Merlot for $28 a lot. It was the best Merlot we tasted on our trip to Paso Robles and the Santa Ynez Valley. My wife liked the 2014 Sauvignon Blanc for $21 as it was a little sweeter than the usual sauvignon blanc. Tasting fee was... More

Service is always good. Wine ..well depends on your taste. I prefer their white and dessert wines even though I usually drink red wine. The special events are so much fun. Movie nights, bbq's, the winery tour with wine and cheese pairings..always a good time.

Kalyra Winery was our last stop in our wine tour. All of us in our group agree that our tour guide save the best for last. All of their wines tasted good but their dessert wines are some of the best we ever tasted. It is so good that we decided to join their Wine Thieves Club and purchase at... More

Overall the location is very nice. The service is very good but the wine are not that good. The sauvignon blanc was the best of all. The oporto wine ( last one) had great cocoa notes.
