“Enjoy the American Riviera from the heart of historic Santa Barbara” Located in the heart of historic El Paseo in downtown Santa Barbara, Margerum Wine Company offers two venues for tastings: MWC32 and the Margerum Tasting Room. Sit on our dog friendly patio while you enjoy a tasting or glass of wine. Doug Margerum has been intimately involved in both food and wine for over 30 years in the Santa Barbara region, which has made him one of the pioneers in the industry. Margerum works with the top vineyards from the warm, eastern end of the valley in Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara to the cool vineyards of Sta. Rita Hills towards the western end of the valley

We had coupons for this winery so decided to try it. The wines were average. The wine server was not as knowledgeable as some of the other wineries. We weren't that impressed.

Enjoyed ourselves tremendously at a recent library tasting in Buellton. The Margerum family and whole staff were wonderful and we came away with some great library wines.
