This was our second stop on a recent wine tasting trip. Very nice, large patio that's dog friendly. Beautiful views and helpful staff.

If you like a sweet wine every once in a while, Kalyra has a great selection. My fiance and I have yet to try one we didn't like so it was an easy decision to join the Dessert Only wine club.

This was our 2nd visit to this winery having visited in 2011.
Very enjoyable-"our winetender" was very informative about each wine and recommended the type of meals that would go well with each wine. We were so impressed we decided to join their wine club!
Kalyra was one of the locations featured in Sideways the movie.
Highly recommend a tasting here for $10 or $15.

If you're visiting Santa Ynez wineries (vs. hopping around tasting rooms in Solvang) this property is a must see. Kalyra offers a large variety of wines - everyone in your party is bound to find something. Their wine club is reasonably priced, and the staff are friendly.

My favorite part about this vineyard is the large front porch at the tasting room - you have a choice of a bar inside or tables outside (complete with a lazy basset hound that comes around to get petted and goes back to sleep). The front porch gives you an amazing view of classic wine country.

Other visitors brought lunches with them to eat on the patio with their tastings. Very laid back, easy going vibe. Nothing pretentious, but you still get the quality wine and great experience.

We started here by accident just seeing it from State Street walking from the restaurant heavy end towards the Pier. It is on the left.

The wines are OK - they are not the best I've ever had but there was a very drinkable Semillon and Sangiovese. I would describe it as pleasant table wine.

The best thing about this place was the guy who works here. He clearly enjoys wine and likes talking about it. He is also very happy to recommend other places to go to which are not on the Urban Wine Trail.

If you're in a group, it is a good place to start. You get 6 wines, 1 dessert wine and a tawny for $10. Pretty good value. I would prefer if they changed glasses or rinsed between each serving.
