Winery
Brick Barn Wine Estate occupies the westernmost frontier of the Santa Ynez Valley in Santa Barbara Wine Country and is open for wine tasting Sunday through Thursday from 11am-5pm and Friday through Saturday from 11am-6pm. Charcuterie and chocolate pairings are available while supplies last.

After a meticulous renovation and reimagination of the property’s historic Arabian horse barn, Brick Barn Wine Estate opened in 2018. Our wines are produced and aged on-site in our adjoining state of the art winery and barrel room.

At this time we may only seat groups of up to 8 guests. Groups larger than 8 cannot be split between multiple tables. Children are welcome but are included in the headcount and must remain seated with their group at all times. In following COVID safety and sanitation guidelines, all wine tastings will be served outdoors on our spacious patios and tree terrace. We look forward to sharing our wines with you!

The wines were great (we didn’t get food but meat and cheese board we saw looks awesome). Sadly service was so slow. There was only one hostess and one server. While the server was hustling and it wasn’t her fault, it was understaffed for a busy Thursday of reservations. I’d return for sure but an a slow and relaxing time (not tied to a schedule for other tastings).

As a member we drove up from Santa Barbara for some great wine tasting on the patio. Once again we were not disappointed. Came home with six bottles of wine!

We went on a Monday @ Noon. Very relaxing, great service and the wines were very good. We even bought a Cab to take home. Enjoyed the charcuterie tray too! Would highly recommend...enjoyed a quick visit to the town of Solvang afterwards, (it’s a short distance from the winery.)

Brick Barn was such a beautiful place to visit! The wine was good, the views were AMAZING and the staff was very friendly. The outdoor space was one of the best of all the wineries we went to that day. This was the perfect stop for a group of girlfriends in Cali for a reunion weekend :)

We did not actually have food, but if we had, I'm sure it would have been just as great as the wine and the service and the ambience. The site would not let me leave that portion blank or use N/A.
In any case, we highly recommend Brick Barn!

I didn’t know how to not check the food- we didn’t have food. The experience was great! We always have a nice time - we were in the other side with the turf grass- however I like the other side better because it has a view of the vineyard. Our server was very nice and informative.

The wine was good; however, it took quite a while between pours. Our server was a very nice young lady; however, it seemed we were forgotten at times. Other than some boxed dry food options, there was no food service.

Really nice outdoor setting, in spite of being right off the main drag. Too bad we weren't able to enjoy it. Instead of being seated in the comfy couch and fire pit area, we were placed at a wooden picnic table out in the 30 mph wind channel. The hostess told us that as guests left, she would move us to the more comfortable seating. That was the last we heard from her. Tables emptied out, and refilled, and we were still battling the elements. The wines were less than impressive. The charcuterie was presented in a to-go box. The service was sparse. Too bad. Having seen the photos of the winery and tasting area, we were excited to go to Brick Barn Estate. That is why I bought the voucher from Travel Zoo. Not planning on going back. There are too many choices for wine tasting in the San Ynez Valley. Will definitely return to Sunstone Winery though.

We went right at opening and it was peaceful and beautful. The wines we tasted were great and the employee tailored our tasting to what we prefer. The charcuterie was okay but not exactly worth the price in our opinion. All in all a great ecperience, hightly recommend.

We went to the winery for tastings, we didn’t eat there. Our experience was wonderful! It’s a peaceful atmosphere that is well designed. Of course the wine is excellent. I highly recommend Brick Barn for a great wine tasting experience.

Hi it was a fantastic experience. We did have to move from the front area due to wind knocking over the wine glasses, wow that wind is strong out there, I think you need a wall. We were able to move to a couch on the sheltered area and staff was very helpfull.

This was our first visit to Brick Barn. All of the wine was delicious and they had some great Cab Franc, which isn't typically easy to find. Impressive Chardonnay as well. Excellent service and beautiful grounds. I look forward to returning once the tasting room is back to normal with no restrictions
