  • One of the very few operating wineries in the city of Santa Barbara. Great wines, friendly staff, large patio and fire pit. Live music and great for events. Dress warm!
  • Really cool vibe here and the wine is awesome!
  • The place itself is interesting to stop by, thanks to the architecture and the piled up barrels, next to the vats and other wine-making pieces of apparatus. The wines on the tasting list, however, were all disappointing. They lacked personality to the point that you mostly have to rely on color to determine the varietal. The pourer was nice enough but gave sparse information, so we asked for the wine notes, which were available upon request from a binder for all except one of the whites.At least that helped.
  • The pinot was expensive and just so so. Good band playing that night!
  • The wine was good, ambiance was cool, outside space was perfect but what made it really enjoyable was the staff.
