On vacation from Hawaii to visit family. My Daughter in law & Sister introduced me to Cantara Cellars. What a great place, delicious wines and "Pupus", I lost track of if we visited 3 or 4 times, we were treated by Chris and Son to a tour of the barrel room. Being from Hawaii I really appreciate this type of... More

We visit Cantara Cellars at least once, if not twice a year from Texas to visit with Mike and Chris Brown, and their son, Jesse! Great people. They always make you feel at ease. So laid back. Their wine is excellent no matter if you like reds whites, or anything in between. We are in the wine club and order... More

loved the Frankenvine. We really enjoyed our wine tasting session at Cantara Cellars. The wine was excellent and the staff/owners are very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return. We learned about their wine making process, how they named their wines and much more. We highly recommend a visit.

We went wine tasting yesterday with some friends, one of whom is a club member. The winery is in an industrial area so it isn't readily visible in Camarillo. It is pretty easy to find though. The tasting room is small and quaint. We really enjoyed the red wines at Cantara. The Petite Syrah was the best one in my... More

I found Cantara Cellars at a fund raiser for the local food bank five or six years ago. Chris poured me a taste of Frankenvine and I have been hooked ever since. Since I couldn't buy wine right there on the spot, I gathered some friends and we went to the tasting room that weekend. We were able to learn... More

Who would have guessed it but for 10 years this family winery has blended their own wines from several CA locations and the value proposition price/quality is truly a deal. We joined their wine club and enjoyed every wine (reds) in the tasting.

It's definitely located in a surprising place, but really appreciated the warmth and friendliness of Jesse. The wine is very good and the fruit is from Lodi. It's a fun day to go on the wine trail in this area.

We used to be members and really enjoyed the wine and having a tasting room in the area - we even turned friends on to them and they joined. Cancelled to try out others but miss them and will be back soon!

The tasting room is in an industrial park near the airport which is OK if you like that type of setting. In general, I like the wine selection and quality. It's the tasting room people that could use a bit of work. Rather aloof for my liking. Could use a bit of friendly training.
