Great people wine and service Thank you Always love Gainey winery!

I know this place had a lot of great reviews online - many people saying it was their favorite vineyard to visit. I didn't want to go for those very reasons (weird, right?) but I have to say - all of you were right!
I know a lot of places have had to adjust due to Covid, but Gainey does it right.
1) You sit outside on their veranda in the shade (that is key!) right next to their vines!
2) You get all the wine up front in small carafes so you can manage your time their yourself! No worrying about how long you'll be there - it's up to you!
3) Our server was incredibly kind and knowledgeable, and not in that fake-rehearsed way other places may do. Our guy was passionate and funny and just awesome.
4) We met the owner! How cool is that? He came right over to talk to us! It was like meeting a celebrity. I never met anyone who owned a winery before. I need more friends like that.
5) The wines were EXCELLENT. I bought a couple while I was there.

This place should most definitely be on your list when you visit Santa Barbara for sure!

-Steve K. Via Yelp | visited 05-24-21
