15 Best Wine Tasting Rooms In Santa Barbara - Tasting Table

Another Funk Zone favorite, Margerum Tasting Room in the Hotel Californian is a bright and airy tasting room that serves plenty of great food and wine. Margerum actually offers five different tasting flights. From the pinot noir flight to the syrah flight, having a few different options allows guests to curate an experience that fits their palate best. However, if you're looking to go all out while visiting Margerum, book the private M5 blending seminar tasting. This interactive experience is both memorable and educational, and it runs for $150 per person.  Continue »

"I first left Europe aged 30 — here’s where I booked my big trip"- The Times

Next up is Santa Barbara, which for all its glamorously skinny, tufty-headed palms — the supermodels of trees — has the slightly melancholy air of an out-of-season British seaside resort. The melancholy is dissipated by a wine-tasting at the Margerum Wine Company. I have always enjoyed wine tastings because my very limited knowledge and understanding of matters oenological means I am unable to distinguish between good wine and bad wine. To me it’s all good. There’s never that disappointing moment that proper wine people must get where they sniff a brimming glass and are completely crushed to discover notes of fresh apple instead of astringent summer meadows or whatever. A couple of upscale American gentlemen pour us glass after glass and purringly hymn the virtues of the Californian climate and the excellence of its vineyards. There’s a charcuterie board. There’s a “herbally enhanced digestif”. There’s ice cream which tastes of “herbally enhanced digestif”. I get carried away and start telling people I’m getting notes of blackcurrant from everything. It’s marvellous.  Continue »

The Magical Place Called Radian Vineyard- The Wine Write

"Terroir" is a term that's thrown around loosely at times, but you can't hear or read about Radian Vineyard and doubt that it applies to this site. Any uncertainty is tossed aside when you drink wines from the property. You can taste the Pacific in your glass and appreciate the struggle those grapes endured to get into the bottle. While this country does not formally classify our best vineyard sites as does France, Radian Vineyard would draw strong consideration for Grand Cru status if we did. Winemakers like Ken Brown, Bryan Babcock, Doug Margerum, John Dragonette, Brandon Sparks-Gillis, Matt Dees, Matt Brady, and others got into Radian Vineyard early on for a reason. The potential they saw in this site has been realized in their final products.  Continue »
