Overview

Grassini Family Vineyards is a family-owned and operated, boutique winery. We specialize in limited production Bordeaux wines made exclusively from our estate vineyard in the Happy Canyon AVA of Santa Barbara. We farm our estate vineyard to its fullest potential using renewable and sustainable resources. When you're in downtown Santa Barbara, be sure to visit our dog-friendly wine tasting room - one of the few wine tasting rooms with an outdoor patio in Santa Barbara! We're located just steps off State Street in the historic El Paseo Center. Taste our incredible Bordeaux wines, and then explore the paseos and courtyards of the Presidio Neighborhood, where you'll find several other wine tasting rooms, wonderful restaurants, and fantastic boutiques!

Every couple of months we take the Amtrak train to Santa Barbara for the the. Grassini Wine tasting room is great. Wine and staff are excellent and very knowledgeable about their wine and vineyards. Great stop in a beautiful area.

Nice tasting room in downtown Santa Barbara. Very good 2013 Grassini Cabernet Sauvignon, but slightly overpriced at $65 a bottle. My grandson also liked the 2014 Articondo Bordeaux blend for $45. One of our $15 tasting fees was waived with the purchase of three bottles....More

The wine was rich in flavor, and surrounded by charming people and craftsmanship. The cabs have an earthiness that is distinct to the region. But, they have an even more beautiful vineyard than their tasting room. If you can, make your way over and book...More

The wines weren't cheap, but they were very good. The woman behind the bar wasn't quite as open and friendly as the men at Au Bon Climat and Margerum had been, but she did know a lot about the wines.
