“Very Nice Wine Tasting Experience!”

The Brander Vineyard
Ranked #9 of 27 things to do in Santa Ynez
Attraction details
Reviewed September 12, 2012

My friends and I stopped in at Brander Vineyard today while we were visiting the Santa Ynez Valley. The staff in the tasting room were really friendly and helpful and they guided us through our wine tasting. Brander specializes in Sauvignon Blanc and we got to try a few. They also had some really nice Cabernet Sauvignon and the Syrah was excellent. The grounds are really pretty, and they have a very large patio that has lots of picnic seating. We found a nice shady spot and had a picnic as well. A very nice experience. Tasting fee was $10.00 per person and you can share if you aren't big drinkers.

Brander is amazing! Not only was the wine perfection, but the staff was impeccable. Celebrating my bachelorette with my two very best friends led us from LA to wine country. After many wonderful local reviews, we stumbled upon Brander and we were not disappointed. Everyone we met was wonderful and they kept the tasting room open a few extra minutes for us. After leaving, I realized my credit card had fallen out of my purse. The Brander team was able to find it in the vineyard and mail it back to me in Missouri within one day, along with another bottle of their Cuvee Nicolas. They were wonderful and my husband and I can't wait to visit on our next trip!

Nice selection during the tasting and like them on Facebook for a special pour of your selection. I enjoyed the cabernet reserve 2006 so much I had to purchase a bottle from the winery.

My husband and I stopped in for a tasting July of last year. The grounds are lovely and not over the top. I like the rustic feel of the tasting room. The hostess was very friendly and warm. The wine’s we tried were good, but some a little over priced. Enjoyed a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc au Naturel.
