Los Olivos Wine Tasting in Santa Barbara Wine Country

” If you are spending some time in the Santa Barbara area, this is a tasting room you don’t want to miss. Andrew Murray lives up to his rock star winemaker reputation and I am now a groupie..” – Bella McDowell – California: January 2012 – WineAndGoodFood.com

 

“I’ll say it right up front, I am so glad we chose to stop by. The Syrahs, all single vineyard designates, were fantastic and worth a leisurely taste.” – Jason Phelps – New Hampshire: June 2011 – AncientFireWineblog.blogspot.com

 

Plan a day of Santa Barbara County wine tasting along the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail, just a few short miles away from the historic town of Los Olivos. We took over the former Curtis Winery location along Foxen Canyon Road in January of 2014. After an extensive remodel, we are once again open for tasting, tours, and more. We have extensive grassy picnic grounds, under the shade of ancient oaks. We have a new terrace just outside the winery’s front door, where you can waste away an afternoon under the oaks, enjoying the views of the Figueroa Mountain range, with a carafe (yes we serve some of our wines on tap) of rose. Perhaps you want to have a cheese plate, in the comfort of our new Members’ Lounge or to taste in a private room amongst library wines and large oak wine tanks? We offer flights with generous pours that start at $12. Oh, and remember, our Wine Club Members and guests always taste for free!

Pressed for time? Want to taste within the little town of Los Olivos and grab a bite to eat at one of the many great restaurants in town? Then, please visit us at our downtown Los Olivos tasting room, where we have been serving our hand crafted wines for over 18 years. Our Los Olivos wine tasting room offers a generous wine flight for $10. Sample some of our best Syrah and popular white wines while lounging on a sleek leather sofa or catching up with friends at the mahogany bar.

To tease your palate, our offerings range from one of the consistently best red wines under $20 – our Syrah Tous les Jours – to wines that are ‘not for the casual suburban housewife Pinot Grigio drinker’ (Steve McIntosh, winethropology.com). Of course we always include several Robert Parker, Jr. rated vintages as well. Whether you’re an aspiring wine aficionado or you’re wine tasting for the first time, our friendly staff will guide you through the process – sans pretentiousness. Check out Andrew’s video on ‘How to Wine Taste’ below.

Care to visit our Los Olivos winery? It’s now open on weekends for wine tasting and tours from April to mid-December. During the winter months (mid-December through March), we will be open only by appointment for wine club members, tour/limo groups, etc.
