We went to Municipal Winemakers for a wine tasting, and found to our surprise a semi hippie place. But their wines for tasting was really high quality. We surely recommend visitors to Santa Barbara to pass by the bar.

We love little "hole in the wall" places like this. No expansive wine country views, but an excellent time to sit and have an intimate chat about wines and life. Paola was a phenomenal hostess as we tasted wines, discussed the history of Muni, and...More
