Parking is the first challenge, (as it is with many places in Santa Barbara).We found the last street parking space about a half block away. The wine selection was broad and fairly priced. We bought six bottles, several of which we have since enjoyed. The...More

Great tasting room with extensive library wines available. We were impressed by the sauv blanc. Great Pinots (of course) and a cab that was delicious. The stand out for us was the bottle we bought and had back at our room. A 1999 Hildegard.... oh...More

They have several types of tastings and there are always whites and reds available. Vertical tastings on the last Friday of the month includes cheese and crackers. Some very interesting wines on offer. Apparently there are library wines available also. Recommended.

This wine tasting room was suggested by our local sommelier so we went. Great white and reds wines. Nicole did a great job explaining the Clendenen wine making. Very pleased with the service and quality of wines. Best spot in SB!

EXCELLENT Pinots. But I should note that they only make (or at least serve) Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. Bette was super helpful and friendly - she took great care of us! If you like pinots, I highly recommend visiting this tasting room!

We sat outside for our wine flight and had a pleasant hour or so. The staff were knowledgeable and chatty, without being intrusive. None of the wines really stood out for us but the wine flight was good value and it was much calmer here...More
