  • Didn't like any of their wines. :( But at least their tastings are affordable and you get to keep the glass!
  • I not only LOVE the wine but I love all of the people that work there! They are great! Customer service is excellent, and very knowledgeable and super friendly. We live in Arizona and make special trips to Santa Barbara because we are so thrilled with Jaffurs Wine! You cannot go wrong belonging to the wine club.
  • Friendly, knowledgeable staff, delicious wines. What more could you want!
  • I have been a Jaffurs wine fan for 10 years. I think their wines are fantastic and I love the easy going relaxed tasting room and have been many times. I'm living in Italy now and missing a Jaffurs Syrah very much!
  • Jaffurs produces some of the finest wines available from Santa Barbara County's storied winemaking region. The dedication to their craft distinguishes Craig, Dave, Matt, and Stephen as an excellent team of winemakers. I've been a Jaffurs wine club member for several years now and I've never been disappointed in any of the wines they've released. The tasting experience at the wine cellar location is indicative of the profession of winemaking . . . a place in which the facility is designed for the efficient production of wine rather than being a frou-frou fa├žade of commercial distraction or a magnet for party buses and drunken bachelorettes. The workers pouring for tastings at Jaffurs comprise a friendly and knowledgeable staff. They've always been generous to share their understanding of the wines being offered and are helpful with suggested ways to pair the wines with food. (Note: the recent releases of Jaffurs wines are continuing to bolster the strong reputation which has been established for quality and approachability.)

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.
