Exceptional wines as always; loved the set up by the vineyards, still prefer the individual pourings but understand the new protocol , thank you.

-Flor C. Via Tock | visited 03-28-21

The perfect "Covid" getaway is only a short drive away Santa Barbara!!! Gainey is well set up to provide an exceptional tasting experience. I love the way the service is set up with each tasting labelled and a great variety (my favorites are still the Chardonnay and Syrah, but the Pinot was superb as well). The view of the wine grapes and valley allow you to feel you are in Italy!! We are just so fortunate to have this winery in our backyard. Thanks Gainey for taking those extra precautions to make us all safe and still providing us with a superb wine tasting experience. Kudos to the staff for providing a friendly, informative, and upbeat atmosphere!

It's always a beautiful day at the Gainey vineyard, no matter what the weather, there is beauty in all of its seasons. Seeing the raw vines getting ready for spring, shaping the character of the new season to come still awes me. This winery has for the past 25 years to present day is still my favorite. Meryl was from all those years ago till now is still the friendliest, most helpful person ever on staff. Everyone we've ever been in contact with, all share that same quality. The wines speak for themselves, crisp clean, flavorful, never a bad bottle. My favorites are still the Pinot that fragrant is memorizing. When ever I need to break away from the city, Gainey vineyard comes first to mind. Thank you again for the best time ever this weekend. I'll be going back to work on Monday thinking about the wonderful time I had a the winery, watching the hawks circling around sipping a glass of wine. Till our next trip Mahalo and much Aloha Dare & Byron Omoto
