Santa Barbara Winery

When you hear the term “Urban Wine Trail,” you might presume this region to be relatively new to wine. If you’ve heard of the “Funk Zone,” you may think its driven by a younger generation. But Santa Barbara County has been a wine producing region longer than most in California. Since wine is not its primary draw, it has never really become synonymous with wine like the Russian River Valley or Dry Creek.

Santa Barbara Winery has been making wines from the same location since 1962. Their tasting room has been located in the Funk Zone even before the hood had that moniker. Since 1964, Santa Barbara Winery has been pouring wine from their tasting room adjacent to downtown Santa Barbara. Using grapes from Santa Rita Hills, they craft light and crisp white wines and Pinot Noirs in the classic styles.
