Overview

The Taste of Sta Rita Hills wine tasting room is the perfect place to taste the hard-to-find wines of the Santa Rita Hills. No other wine tasting room in the Wine Ghetto encompasses so many different wineries. Some of our fine brands include: Sea Smoke, Bonnacorsi, Paul Lato, Gypsy Canyon and about 20 others.

Antonio took a lot of time and care to help educate me about Pino and in particular that from the Santa Rita AVA. It's tucked behind Flying Goat and we'll worth a yep to The Wine Ghetto. And they pour the elusive Sea Smoke pinot....More

I enjoyed the wines. However, none were "gotta have it". It is very nice that they offer cheese, bread and salami with the tasting. In addition, you can sit outside and have a glass of wine. The pours were very small.
