Appointment Only Tasting Experiences

We are now offering a variety of behind the scenes appointment only wine tasting experiences. In our private Reserve Room at our Tasting Room in Santa Barbara we are hosting a Wine and Chocolate perfect pairing experience, Wine Education experience and an owner wine tasting experience. If visiting wine country is on your list, let us treat you to an excursion over the hill into the Santa Ynez Valley where we will visit one of our vineyards we source fruit from along with doing some barrel tasting at the winery. These experiences are designed to elevate the wine tasting experience to a whole new level. Join Jamie Slone Wines for an experience you will never forget.
