      The husband and wife team of Niels and Bimmer Udsen established Castoro Cellars with the goal of producing world-class wines from Paso Robles-appellation grapes.

    • Oreana

      Location: California, Santa Barbara County (California), Santa Barbara Urban Wine Trail (Down-town) (California) | Reviews: 1

      Cellar 205/Oreana is now simply Oreana. The Old Bob Woolever’s Tire Shop was vacant and abandoned, looking like a sad scar in the downtown “Funk Zone.” Christian Garvin swung by one night on the way to dinner and thought the space looked mighty enticing. After a dinner drink or two, he returned to the old shop and sat in the parking lot for about an hour. With Santa Barbara Winery right across...

    • Stolpman Vineyards

      Location: California, Santa Ynez Valley (California) | Reviews: 2

      The Stolpman's have been producing high quality grapes for many years. It was not until recent years they decided to open a tasting room and share it. This tasting room is a charming former farmhouse from nearly a 100 years ago. Just steps away from Grand Ave in Los Olivos, this could be added to a nice walking tour. Bring your picnic or dine in one of the restaurants.

      Yes, they do wine tasting and this is a fun hang out spot too! Downtown Santa Barbara, wine by the glass and fill up a re-useable 1 liter bottle to-go!

    • Gainey Vineyard

      Location: California, Santa Barbara County (California), Sany Ynez (Santa Barbara County) | Reviews: 2

      This year the Gainey family celebrates their 47th year of farming and ranching in Santa Barbara County. Since the beginning, it has always been the land and its potential that has guided the family. In 1962, Dan C. and his son Dan J. Gainey purchased an 1800 acre ranch on the eastern end of the Santa Ynez Valley. With over 1000 acres of rangeland devoted to cattle, 600 acres of farmland, 100...

    • ZinAlley Winery

      Location: California, Paso Robles (California), Paso Robles West (Paso Robles) | Reviews: 1

      This is not your father's Oldsmobile! From my porch this man Frank Nerielli is a wine rebel with a serious cause for making serious wine for people that can appreciate it! Frank has grown up amongst several generations of winemaking, which now includes his son who does a nice job himself. This is not your typical tasting room as Zin Alley will likely not be on your wine map and when you pull up...
