Sunstone Winery-1

Deeply rooted in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley, Sunstone is a beautiful place to taste beautiful wines. Located just 35-minutes north of Santa Barbara, Sunstone seemingly transports visitors to the Provençal French countryside. Named after the vineyard estate’s exposed, sun-dappled shale and stones, Sunstone is a beautifully tranquil retreat where you can enjoy a glass of wine in our lavender and rosemary-filled courtyard, in our stone barrel-aging caves, or perhaps enjoy lunch at our picnic tables shaded by olive and oak trees.

Whether you are new to wine or an aspiring sommelier, our wine specialists are happy to share our wines with you and answer questions. Enjoy Sunstone wines by the glass, or explore our best selections with our $18 Tasting flight.


Groups of 8 or more must make a Private Tasting Reservation online, or call (800) 313-9463, ext. 234. We offer private wine tastings, wine blending workshops, artisan lunch boxes and many private areas to host you and your friends.


Turn your tasting into the ultimate picnic experience for your group by enjoying our gourmet family style lunches while you taste in our beautiful estate setting. Our culinary partners created a menu that pairs perfectly with our wines. Reservations for your group lunches must be made at least 72-hours in advance.


We are open to the public from 11am to 5pm daily, with last tasting poured at 4:30. Gates close at 4:30pm sharp. We sometimes close early for private events, so visit our Facebook page for early closure announcements. We are CLOSED on major holidays: Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Day and sometimes on the Fourth of July. Click here for DIRECTIONS.

I was extremely happy with Sammy's limo service in Santa Barbara. They took great care of us from the time they picked us up to the very minute they dropped us off. We had an amazing time in Santa Ynez and owe it to these limo pros for making it possible. We will be using them again in the near future, guaranteed!
