Beautiful place with great wines. We tried to sit outside which I recommend because the scenery is so beautiful but all the seating was full. We sat inside and still had a great time. Our server did an amazing job. We went for wine down Wednesday, definitely recommend!

Great server, her name was Danica. She was outstanding. We nicknamed her Zesty because she had a great personality and excited about the wines she was serving. Wines definitely worth trying and wonderful experience. Thanks for a great afternoon!

This winery portrays that they have a menu when actually there are 1-2 appetizers available. In addition, don't compare the wo\ione to Stolpman, MacPrice Meyers, Sean Minor or others in the Central Calif Coast. Not even close.

Brick Barn is one of the best wine tasting experiences on the Central Coast. There are few places that can compete with the quality of the wine, the outstanding staff, and the ambiance. It is serene, peaceful, and highly enjoyable environment. The staff is witty, and energetic and never leave you waiting. This was my 4th time here, and each visit is fantastic. And the wine, absolutely marvelous. I sorely missed this place during the peak of the pandemic and am pleased to be able to visit again.

If you have never been wine tasting or don’t drink a whole lot of wine then I’m sure this place will be great for you. However, if you have a pallet for exceptional wine, or are looking for a not-so-commercial and more authentic experience, then reconsider coming here. The wine was all just “meh” and the ambiance, albeit pleasant, felt contrived and set to cater to the weekend tourist and untrained palette vs the serious wine consumer. Easy to reserve, however, and lots of space outside.

Great venue, great wine. My big disappointment was only getting to be there 1.5 hours then they kick you out. We were there to listen to Take Two, there was 30 min left, we were still buying wine and they wanted to give the table to someone else.

I also had to constantly track our waitress down which was kind of a bummer. Eight tables and three waitresses didn't seem too much of an overload. But honestly I've never been in food service so I don't know. I just didn't like that she kept walking by us.
