Signature Cellar Tastings
Signature Cellar Tastings are held inside the exclusive Gainey Wine Cellar. Here, you’ll discover specially selected flights of our limited production wines offered to visitors seeking a more intimate, in-depth experience. The variety of tasting offerings range from a vertical of library wines - offering guests the unique opportunity to taste several vintages of a particular wine; to Barrels to Bottles - a comparative tasting of current release limited selection wines tasted alongside wines directly from the barrel. Rounding out the tasting menu is the Gainey Blindfold Tasting - a unique experience where guests will taste five Limited Selection wines blindfolded and will channel their inner sommelier by using their sense of smell and taste to determine which wine they are tasting. The tasting menus will rotate every few months offering guests a new experience when they return. With each Signature Cellar Tasting, guests will be treated to a cheese and charcuterie platter.
Signature Cellar Tastings are $45 a person and offered daily at 11am, 1pm and 3pm, by reservation only. Club members will enjoy special pricing. Please call 805-688-0558 ext 106 to make your reservation.
Tasting Experience at our old Family Homestead
During the Winter months, we will no longer be offering Barn Tastings.
However, stay tuned in the Spring, so you can be one of the first to jump on the jeep to this, one of a kind, experience.
In the Spring, we will again be offering guests the unique opportunity to taste our wines at the Gainey barn located in the heart of our Home Ranch vineyard. Available on Saturdays & Sundays, from 11am-3pm, with a limited number available. This intimate tasting will take you from the Gainey Tasting Room, through our vineyard (on Cloud Climbers Jeeps) and will feature six of our Gainey wines, for $15 per person.
Weather conditions permitting.
Gainey Vineyard is located in the Santa Ynez Valley, just two and one-half hours north of Los Angeles, a scenic 35-minute drive north of Santa Barbara.
