PROBABLY the most up-and-coming wine area in the country, Santa Barbara County is a great place to tour and taste the local wines. In order for us to make it easy for you to make plans to visit the area and taste our great Santa Barbara Wine and Central Coast Wine, we've prepared a number of guides. The Santa Barbara Wineries and Central Coast Wineries of California are not only abundant, but are world-class. Come visit. It's a great way to spend a day or a week!
The Complete Wineries List - All the Wineries we know of between Ventura County to the South and Paso Robles County to the north. This isn't just a list of names, but a complete list including addresses, phone numbers, hours of operation, and tasting room facilities. For example, many wineries provide tours and even picnic grounds where you can enjoy a leisurely lunch in the beauty of the vineyards. (This page is rather long, but worth waiting for!)
The Santa Barbara Independent's Definitive Guide to Wine Tasting in Santa Barbara County - A Grand Tour. What more can we say?
Neat Info on Wineries - Our Wine Guru, Bob Senn, has been around these parts for a number of years and writes the wine column for the Santa Barbara Independent Newspaper. He's put together some interesting bits of information about local wineries and winemakers.

Our up-to-date Reprints of the Santa Barbara Independent Newspaper Wine Column include the most current area events, which may include winemaker dinners, music in the vineyard or maybe a picnic or two. When we can, we also put up a complete list of events for the season. When we do, you will find a link from our home page. There's also our own fun food and wine events which you can find by clicking here.
We like to think that the LOS OLIVOS WINE & SPIRITS EMPORIUM is the expert on the Santa Barbara Wine Scene. There's a lot more, and we modestly suggest a visit to our site map (for a quick overview) or our home page. Thanks for stopping by!
