Overview

San Sebastian Winery, founded in 1996 is located at 157 King Street, St. Augustine, Florida in one of Henry Flagler’s old East Coast Railway buildings located just a few blocks from historic downtown. According to historians, this area is the birthplace of American wine, dating back to 1562. Today, San Sebastian ranks as one of Florida's premium wineries, and remains a pioneer in the development of table, sparkling and dessert wines from hybrid and muscadine grapes. Port and Cream Sherry dessert wines are produced by and sold under the San Sebastian brand. All together, San Sebastian labels have won over 1,600 awards for excellence in winemaking, with more coming in each season. Every year more than 100,000 people are expected to visit the winery’s extensive tasting room and wine shop. San Sebastian Winery has an overall production of over 80,000 cases, (that’s over 960,000 bottles!). San Sebastian wines are sold at the winery and at major supermarkets and wine shops throughout Florida and Georgia. “The Cellar Upstairs” Wine, Jazz & Blues Bar, open weekends, is located on the rooftop of the Winery building and is a best kept secret with locals. The Cellar Upstairs features incredible live music from a wide range of talented local and regional Bands. Relax to the music and enjoy the tremendous views overlooking the St. Augustine skyline while enjoying a glass of San Sebastian Wine, draft beer and light appetizers.

One of the stops on the trolley tour that you do not want to miss. Free wine tasting with a very knowledgeable guide. Tasted about six different wines. All very good. Have a restaurant on the third floor with limited menu.

A nice place to check out even though you are not a wine drinker. Self free tour was a great wine tasting experience. Staff on different spots are very knowledgeable and you have the chance of a good variety of wines to taste.

The tours and tastings are excellent. They often have special deals on weekends. There is a rooftop restaurant with great sandwiches and live music. Very much enjoyed my visit and bought a bunch of wine.

The free tour and tasting was a nice experience. I appreciated the information and background on wine making and their particular process. I wasn't totally impressed with the wine however.
