Very nice tasting room & good wines, especially the Bien Nacido Pinot Noir. Here's a little more to fill my character requirement.

My friend and I are huge supporters of Au Bon Climat wines, and made it one of our top priorities of places to visit. It did not disappoint- Emily was in the tasting room that day; she is incredibly knowledgable and friendly. We will definitely be back, and will recommend to others visiting in the area!

We were walking down the street and a gentleman next to us recommended that we go into this tasting room. So happy that we did . The wines were wonderful . We got to taste several of their wines. Joined the wine club and walked out with 3 additional bottles. I would recommend going here.

We had a wonderful tasting at the tasting bar. The wines were execellent. It was very hard to decide which ones to but. The Chards and Pinots are excellent but I loved the Sangiovese blend and the Nebbiolo very good too.

went to ABC while in port on a cruise...had a wonderful wine tasting experience with Emily...she handled us and another small group with ease and knowledge. The wines are very good and come in a wide price range.

Ugh. While I suppose it is convenient that this tasting room is in downtown Santa Barbara, it was not an enjoyable experience. We headed in on a Friday afternoon. The bar was occupied, so we were told to sit at the side table. It was covered in boxes of wine and publications; we clear some space at the end. While... More

We went in after lunching at the restaurant nearby. There were two tasting menu selections, one basic, another, reserve that included the chardonnay that they promoted as having a high score at a higher price. We decided to take the latter. We did not really like 3 of the 5 samples; the chardonnay was good and a pinot was ok.... More

Although their wines were very good, the varieties were limited compared to others in the area which is what lead my rating, not the quality. Overall pleasant experience. The staff was helpful and pleasant. We did not have the auto-tip issue. The iPad did go to a tip choice screen and perhaps the other reviewer had never seen that previously... More

DO NOT GO IN THIS TASTING ROOM! This is outrageous and very unethical. We paid for a full flight wine tasting and had no problem doing that although all we wanted to taste was their Pinot noir wines. We also purchased one bottle of wine. We are from Canada so are very limited to what we can take home. The... More

The wines from this producer are across the board consistently very good to excellent. This tasting room is better than most in the they carry library wines as well as current releases. One can taste though those being poured in the glass for a reasonable price and also shop for wines on the shelves that extend beyond what is poured... More
