Founded in 1962, Santa Barbara Winery is Santa Barbara’s first commercial winery since the prohibition era. Today, the winery and tasting room are in the heart of Santa Barbara Urban Wine Trail, just blocks from the Pacific Ocean.
While Santa Barbara is best known for their Santa Barbara County Chardonnay, they specialize in a multitude of varietals made from French and Italian grapes.
Santa Barbara Winery offers award-winning wines made from such familiar grapes as Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as Late Harvest Riesling and more. All of the grapes used are sourced from estate vineyards and neighboring vineyards in Santa Barbara County.
The tasting room is located in the winery itself. You can enjoy a flight of the current vintage while watching the next vintage being made. Santa Barbara Winery also offers wines by the glass and candlelit VIP tasting in the barrel aging room, accompanied by a gourmet cheese platter and the undivided attention of your own personal sommelier.
