Wine Tasting Rooms

When wine tasting in Santa Barbara, tasting rooms are the wine lover’s ultimate watering hole: Visitors come here to socialize, to share experiences and to relax. No matter your favorite grape varietal or your personal style, you’ll find a Santa Barbara tasting room to fit your taste.

The dozens of tasting rooms that spread throughout downtown Santa Barbara are a reflection of the winemakers and the neighborhoods where they’re located. For a vivacious, youthful sipping experience, the Funk Zone tasting rooms are teeming with personality and Instagram-worthy style. In the city’s historic Presidio Neighborhood, the tasting rooms are intimate and embrace the elegance of the historic buildings they occupy.

For a more picturesque wine-drinking experience, tasting rooms in the Santa Ynez and Santa Maria Valleys are as friendly as they are eclectic. Multiple tasting lists, including reserve lists that often feature limited-edition wines, create a comprehensive lesson for  budding aficionados or seasoned experts alike. At their core, Santa Barbara’s tasting rooms are personal, so don’t be surprised if the person doing the pouring is the actual winemaker.
