Came here on a recommendation - very good wines. Our host was informative. ($12 for a tasting). Smaller size tasting room. Understand it gets crowded on weekends.

Great wine, space & vibe.....and the corks on the bottles are "Brenna & Robbie" As members we come up to Santa Barbara for our seasonal wine pickups. Upon arrival there is always a great welcoming smile. This is rare indeed, one could not ask for more. The excellent service, conversation, along with delicious wine is the reason we come in...

Stumbled upon this urban tasting room by chance - loved the white wine tasting! Our tasting guide was very sweet, and never rushed our big group. I bought a bottle of the wine we tasted so she also waived my tasting fee (would have been $12). Fun stop along SB's Urban Wine Trail!

This is my third trip to Santa Barbara, and my third time to this tasting room. It is open, airy, and welcoming. The reds are the stars of their offerings. While not my absolute favorite wine, it is still one I consistently get to have on hand to pair with dinners. I do love the regional Pinot Noir, but this... More

For $12 you can taste a flight of white or red. And you can revisit the wines. The day were visited the gal poring was very friendly and provided good Info about the various wines.

I love these little places and the Funk Zone provides many. We very much enjoyed the wines at Kunin. It was valuable to see the map where the vineyards are located. Buy two bottles and the tasting is free (a deal we almost always do). Our hostess, Heather, was knowledgeable, but would sometime have her back to us (and the... More

We stopped in here before dinner and had a great time. Staff (unfortunately I have forgotten her name) were super friendly and knowledgeable. The wines were great too and we walked away with a few bottles! Would have loved to buy more if it was easier to get them home to Australia!

This is one of my favorite tasting rooms in all of California. At Kunin every wine I tasted was at least quite good. But one of my favorites was a botrytis viogner that tasted like cotton candy with a bubblegum aftertaste. Not traditional? Sure. But beyond delicious. And if you do not like those flavors then either you are lying... More

We have been wine tasting in Santa Barbara County for about 10 years and Kunin Winery has become our favorite. I can honestly say I have never had a wine there that I didn't like. (we have done tasting throughout the State and there are not may places where I can say that) Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Not cheap... More
