At Sunstone Vineyards and Winery, located just 35-minutes north of Santa Barbara, you can seemingly transport yourself to a Provencal French countryside. Named after the vineyard estate’s exposed, sun-dappled shale and stones, Sunstone is a beautifully tranquil retreat where you can enjoy a glass of wine in our lavender and rosemary-filled courtyard, in our stone barrel-aging caves, or perhaps enjoy lunch at our picnic tables shaded by olive and oak trees. Whether you are new to wine or an aspiring sommelier, our wine specialists are happy to share our wines with you and answer questions.
Walk-in wine tasting groups of eight or less are welcomed, and can taste a flight of 6 wines for $12 per person.
Private Group Tastings
We welcome walk-in groups of 8 or less. For groups of 9 or more, however, we ask you to schedule a Private Tasting so as to guarantee a space for your group and allow guests to experience quality service. As part of a private tasting, we walk your group through our Classic Tasting list, giving extensive details about each wine and describing the organic winemaking process and the history of Sunstone Vineyards and Winery. The tasting fee is $25 per person. All Private Tasting guests will receive 15% off all purchases made during their visit, including wine and other merchandise. Looking to turn your tasting into the ultimate picnic experience for your group? Enjoy our gourmet boxed lunches while you taste in our beautiful estate setting. Offerings and prices available upon request.
