Casual, low key tasting rooms in funk zone!

Chilled out tasting rooms. No formality whatsoever. Lovely Sunday afternoon stroll and a very reasonably priced 5 wine 'taster flight'. Call in.

Love the variety of different tastes. Nice change from the "norm" tasting spots. Nice airy environment with a touch of class.

Came in here on a Wednesday afternoon so it wasn't too busy. Got to taste a flight of their wine. The staff are very knowledgeable about the wine so was very good at being able to recommend what to drink. On top of that they were very friendly and just conversation in general was lots of fun. Bought a Club... More

We love little "hole in the wall" places like this. No expansive wine country views, but an excellent time to sit and have an intimate chat about wines and life. Paola was a phenomenal hostess as we tasted wines, discussed the history of Muni, and a bit about each of our lives. Lovely time!

This winery was on the edge of the funk zone, and in my opinion, is the best (along with Pali). Our hosts were super nice, and the wines were not only very high quality (yes, we're fussy) and very fairly priced. Please go if you are in SB, you will not be disappointed, and will come home with very unique,... More

I loved the wine here and the people helping with tasting were great. I had read a review that it was cozy and comfy so we went here to relax while waiting for dinner reservations. Unfortunately they've remodeled since the photos here and it's not as relaxing. The use artist's stools and old school desks which look great but aren't... More

The pinot noir was the best I have ever had. Buy a bottle. I didn't and now they don't have it on their website:(. Great atmosphere, and staff. It is a must stop along the way!

My son and daughter in law took me for a night of wine tasting. The wine was fantastic, and the atmosphere fun without being rowdy.

Located in an old dive shop, this is one of the neatest tasting rooms in Santa Barbara. They make both whites and reds although they usually sell out of the whites so beware. Must be because they are so good. They also make a sparkling red wine called Fizz but it too sells out quickly. The staff is always friendly... More
