We dropped by right after lunch on a Saturday afternoon in January. The tasting room was pretty empty which was good since we didn't have a reservation. Our group of four did the chardonnay and pinot tasting option ($15) and all of the wines were great. All of Cambria's wines are estate grown so they label them according to vine... More

We were looking for things to do on a rainy day and stumbled into this winery. They had a couple tasting menus of reds and whites so we tried both. The Viognier was light and crispy and all of their Pinot Noirs were quite good for their price. The tasting room has great ambience with nice patio seating outside. This... More

This is a huge winery! Very high quality pinots, talented staff and a fire place on cold days! We enjoyed our Pinot tastings and the friendly attention we received. We will be back, you should visit.

The grounds are beautiful. They have a nice patio with tables where we have brought a picnic lunch. There is also a grassy area nearby where you can play the beanbag toss.Wines are consistent. Servers are congenial.

Although this winery lacks an expansive outdoor garden area like many others, the tasting room is lovely with a large picture window overlooking the Sisquoc River Valley and another overlooking the barrel room. Cambria wines rarely disappoint and the staff is friendly and helpful.

I've reviewed Cambria before. It makes some of my favorite wines. But one thing I find impressive about visiting the winery is that they keep re-inventing their wines. They try different techniques. You can really only try these special versions of your favorite wines by going to the winery. And the servers there are so special ... adding depth to... More

I live nearby and have visited virtually all of the wineries in Santa Barbara County. Hands down, Cambria Winery has the best American style Pinot Noir in California. It's a little out of the way, but worth the trip to find it.

I'm not a huge red wine drinker and that's what they focus on so I didn't find much that blew me away. However, their viognier was so good I bought a bottle, later I wished I bought more.

Overall this place is nothing special. The tasting room is small and the wines we tasted were really terrible. Maybe it was just a bad year for their vineyards but we won't be going back. With so many other great wineries along the Santa Ynez wine trail you should skip this one.
