Great girl served us - friendly, knowledgable and interested in our tastes. Really nice wines but loved the Desert wine. Sorry I didn't buy one of their quality tee-shirts. Got the wine glasses home safely though!

Thank Clare S

We were here in late April...off a ship doing a west coast cruise. We wanted to do some wine tasting...but did not have the time to go all the way to the winerys in the Santa Ynez Valley...so we decided to go to the tasting room of the oldest winery in Santa Barbara.

Did we make the right decision! Yes!!! It was an easy walk from where we were dropped off after tendering in from the ship...just several blocks off lower State Street.

It was $10.00 for a tasting...and we were given 8 wines...with a few "extras" thrown in!! The young lady who served us was very knowledgable and pleasant...we talked about everything from "soup to nuts" while we were tasting.

The venue also has an outdoor area...where you can take your wine to taste if you so wish...you are also allowed to bring your own food/snacks etc. into that area, at the front of the tasting room.

We were there about 1.5 hours and enjoyed every minute...a perfect spot to learn more about SB wines, the region etc....plus enjoy good wines!

Thank LuAnn

We came here thanks to a certificate from the Upham. We had 6 free tastings. The girl knew her wine! She was so good that the hubby bought a bottle of wine. Great service and super friendly staff.

Great staff, open early and great wines. What more do you need. The staff can answer any questions you have. On weekend afternoons they have olive oil tastings as well. This place does get busy in the afternoon on weekends but they all have this problem. It just means they're popular and that means they're doing something right.
