Staff is always very welcoming and helpful, and the wine selection will satisfy any oenophile. We recommend the Sunset Rose for summer sipping with an order of bacon wrapped dates.

The new expanded section in the back is amazing - super cute with all the lights and tables and great ambiance. Food was also delicious and, of course, the wine was great too.

We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Winemaker dinner at Pali Wine's back patio. The food was excellent, and the wine was superb as always. The staff was especially awesome and speedy with serving dinner and wine to 50+ people. We were very impressed :) The atmosphere that Pali has created with the back patio is flawlessly chic yet relaxed.

I've been a member of the Pali Wine Club for about 10 years now, but decided to cancel it after this visit. I live quite a distance from both their Santa Barbara and San Diego tasting rooms, so only rarely get to visit to taste. They have a 4 complementary tastings per month limit, with only 2 tastings at a time, which is pretty onerous, considering we visited this time with 4 people. The server and manager refused to accommodate additional tastings, so we were charged.

Not a great value considering we buy 4 shipments of 3 wines per year. Pretty much the stingiest club out there!

This place is good, but definitely overpriced for what you get. I enjoyed it for a girls night out on the town, but I don’t think I’d go back.

Our server was very knowledgable about wines and helped us to select two wines we absolutely loved. We really enjoyed the service, the wine was delicious and the cheese platter was a hit. This is definitely a great place to bring family and friends visiting from out of town, I would highly recommend it!

Pali Wine is so much fun, there are so many choices so what ever you are in the mood for they have it. We had the harvest moon, white cap and the premium tasting . We shared the cheese and meat plate, more than enough for 2, everything on the menu sounded so tasty. Thank you!

Visiting from out of town and both of us really enjoy wine tasting. We sat upstairs on a shaded outdoor patio. We got the premium and regular wine flights and were very impressed with both! We got the meatballs and the deluxe cheese and meat board, which was piled high with everything that makes a fantastic charcuterie board. Overall, this was a great experience and we will definitely come back!

We've been wine club members for years--the wine has always been fantastic. But now the Little Italy tasting room has added tapas and it's fantastic too! Fresh ingredients, creative recipes, excellent execution, great value. If you like good wine and enjoy a meal of small plates, make a reservation and treat yourself.

It was out first time visiting and we had a great time. Our winetender knew a lot about wines and even gave us extra samples to try. We also had some appetizers which were amazing. I recommend this place to everyone that wants to have a nice quiet evening, have a quick bite and try some wines.
