Wine, Bites & Fresh Ocean Air

Visit J. Wilkes

Just one block from the beach and Stern’s Wharf, our tasting room is at the heart of Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone, serving a rotating menu alongside our portfolio of unique, sub-appellated coastal wines. With its stunning backdrop, our tasting room embodies the spirit of the American Riviera, where laid-back vibes meet upscale sensibilities, leisure meets luxury, chic meets casual and trendy meets timeless.

A strong record of 90+ point ratings make our wines worth discovering and our tasting room offers the perfect setting to experience them alongside one another – and the very ocean that shaped their existence. Join us for a tasting, happy hour, or just because, and start exploring the unique characteristics of the Central Coast’s finest sub-AVAs.
