Seth Kunin’s AVA tasting room in Santa Barbara is a great way to try wines from all over the area. For a wider array of tasting options, Riverbench does sparkling and still interpretations of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Grassini Family Vineyards does Cabernet and Sauvignon Blanc, and Margerum Wine Company has some killer Rhone-style wines – both single varietal and blends.
For an urban wine tasting experience that allows one an opportunity to sample wines throughout Santa Barbara — The Funk Zone is an area in Santa Barbara near the beach, from State Street to Garden Street. It’s small, but it’s being revitalized a bit, and has some cool art galleries, shops and restaurants. In our location, the Anacapa Project, you can taste beer, spirits, coffee, and of course wine.
