  • 5/18/2017 We visited as guests of the Santa Ynez Inn ..(note as a guest you get complimentary tastings at several local vineyards) We had a choice of several nearby but chose Gainey because they opened first at 11am. Had no wait and no issues without having an appointment. The vineyard was picturesque and the staff were all friendly. We went to tasting room which was just beautiful and rustic. I tasted a total of 6 ..3 reds and 3 whites. My favorite was Patrick's reserve cab. I did purchase a bottle and joined their club. I can not wait for my first shipment. It was a wonderful experience to our visit to Santa Ynez.
  • Cozy place (both the testing area and garden). They provide good wines and reasonable price for wine testing. Highly recommend!
  • We had a perfect day wine tasting for our Anniversary. The winery wagon ride tour was terrific with a knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide. The employees were all pleasant and enjoyable company. I absolutely recommend visiting and hope that we get to visit again next we're in the area.
  • Amazing! This is one of the few wineries around the world where I love every wine they produce, which is so hard to find! The grounds are gorgeous. The tasting room is spectacular. The customer service is great. Thank you, Gainey!!!
  • Great tour. We enjoyed the wine and staff so much we signed up for the wine club.

Where to stay in Santa Barbara

Blessed with a mild climate and lush location, Santa Barbara remains a playground for the rich and famous, so it's no surprise that accommodations can be extremely expensive here. The priciest hotels are near the water, so before you make your reservations, decide if staying beachside fits into your budget. You can find more affordable rooms at any one of the area's small motels, located just blocks from the beaches. These offer secure parking, cable TV, and free Wi-Fi.
