Often called a "romantic tasting room" the ambiance at Deep Sea is perfect for lounging, tasting, and soaking up the sun.

Great laid back location with rooftop / deck seating overlooking the ocean. If you drive out on the wharf, stop in for a sampler. Decent wines and decent prices. Won't be buying cases of it, but a great overall experience.

During our office retreat we stopped by Deep Sea Wine Tasting on the Santa Barbara Wharf, and had a wonderful time. They had plenty of room for 13 people, and the wine was excellent.

Took the train up, dropped our bags off at the hotel and headed to Stearn's Wharf. The Deep Sea tasting room was a great way to enjoy some good wine and enjoy the ocean view.

Well recommended if you fancy a glass of wine in a venue that feels slightly less touristy. The wine is good and the barman took time to tell us about the wine we had chosen.

Deep Sea is awesome. Great wine, absolutely fantastic views and atmosphere....this is definitely worth the lovely walk out along Sterns Wharf for a quiet glass of wine as the sun goes down! I was here for work with a group of colleagues and it was the perfect place for an informal function. Loved it! Will be back!

Head out to the pier and find this little gem tucked in the back. The views are outstanding and the wine selection is fantastic. Really good reds and whites. Do a tasting or just grab a glass of wine and soak in the view.

My girlfriends and I took the Amtrak to Santa Barbara for just the day. We exited the train and walked to the pier, armed with our own cheese and fruit traythat we carted with us. I don't know if one of us was aware of the Deep Sea Wine Tasting Room before we got there, but we stopped in and... More

Stopped in the Deep Sea wine tasting room for a glass of wine before heading to dinner. I decided on the reserve flight, and my husband had a glass of the Deep Sea Chardonnay. Was nice to look out over the water and sip some wine. Will definitely stop by again.

Their tasting room is on the second floor of a building on Stearns Wharf, so you have a beautiful view! The wine was very good and the staff was friendly.
