Santa Barbara Urban Wine Trail Continued

This is our third stop on the Urban Wine Trail and just for the record, we only take in one or two wineries per week.

Kunin Wines Tasting Room
One of the Santa Barbara Rhone style wines that have always been a personal favorite of ours is Kunin Wines, so we were pleased when they opened up a tasting room in downtown Santa Barbara.  It is contemporary in style and has very knowledgeable staff to assist you in your choice of wines. The cost is $10.00 for the tasting and they also sell their wine. They are open form 11- 6 every day, giving you the opportunity to taste the wine just before you dine.

Municipal Winemakers Tasting Room
 Next door are the Municipal Winemakers. When you first walk in, you’re not sure that it is a wine tasting room.  It looks like a 1950’s office warehouse, but then you realize that this is their décor. They are open 11 – 6 Sunday thru Wednesday and 11AM – 11PM on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Their tastings are $10.00 and they also sell wine by the glass and/or bottle to enjoy on their patio. They also have cheese plates for $10.00 from our favorite cheese shop, C’est Cheese

Both wineries are located are lower Anacapa, one block from Stearns Wharf

  1. Wow this sounds like a great way to spend a day. Wish I knew about this the single time I stayed at the Cheshire Cat Inn! Lovely Inn with a very comfortable yet elegant appeal to it. Wine tasting in Santa Barbara is just the thing to do and if you're a fan of pinot of a syrah, this is the place for you. I was just in town doing just this and loved every second of it. Stayed at the South Coast Inn ( Right outside of town and so elegant.
