Au Bon Climat is the best tasting room in Santa Barbara. Not only is the wine some of the best Ive ever had, its laid back and the employees are incredibly kind and knowledgable. When you go, ask for Nikki or Emily in particular. Theyre enthusiastic, funny, and will explain the different wines in a way that never makes you feel silly but instead makes you feel like its actually something you can learn about. My husband and I signed up for memberships on day 1 and despite living in Los Angeles, we go up and visit as often as we can. Definitely recommend!
At the testing I signed up for membership. Bought a bottle of wine.. to find out different wine when I got home. Changed my mind and call to the store with cancellation of my membership..got conformation, BUT, it actually never went through.. after numerous messages exchange with their office... the shipment is on its way against my wish and credit card was charged. Bad business.
Some of the best wines youll get to enjoy in SB. Especially, the Pinots. I was excited to see they have an entire flight of dedicated to them. All were delicious yet had their own distinct flavor. The staff was also very helpful and the room itself is very inviting and relaxing. Just a great place to sit back and enjoy some great wine.
If you are a pinot fan, you must come here. Their single vineyard pinots are balanced with the right amount of acidity to fruit. Beyond this, you can purchase other wines that Jim Clendenen has made in the past and the best part is that you pay the same price as when they were released. How many places do that!
Some of the best Pinot you will ever have. Clendenen knows how to dial it in. Conveniently located next to Margerum and Grassini, making a trifecta of great wine tasting.
Lovely tasting and a glass of Barham Mendelssohn Pinot noir just fantastic. Staff is nice and knowledgeable about wine
We became fans of Au Bon Climat while living in southern Ca. We have enjoyed every wine.
Friendly Staff and Great wine make this a must-stop if youre visiting Santa Barbara
