The cheese plates are a bit overpriced for what you get but are OK in a pinch. Better to bring your own snacks. Love the wine and staff here, though!

Summerland Winery is a very nice tasting room. It's in a great location but unfortunately due to Covid they had to put a lot of tables in the back in the parking structure which does not get the great ocean views. They do not serve food but I think you can bring food in. Their wine is very good and their staff is always friendly. I have been a member of their wine club for many years.

The white wines were fine. Reds not so good. Server only dropped the wines off with only a canned speech abt them but didn’t want any feedback and when the reds were no good didn’t even realize we were not drinking them. Wine tasting is about the experience and discussion which we got none. Location is good.

service was a bit slow, and the pours weren't very consistent with our flight. I also understand things are difficult with covid-19 restrictions but they just made no sense at all. we had a larger group and had to split the reservation and sit at two separate tables, although we were all sharing an airbnb for the weekend. we couldn't let our tables touch but we were free to stand and mingle together, which just made no sense. if you have a group under 7 it should be just fine though, although some music would've helped liven up the back parking lot were were seated in.

I only gave 1 star for food because at the time I visited, we did not have food.
We have bought this wine and love the wine so wanted to try the tasting room. We had to dogs and were put out on the 'back parking lot' that lacked the ambience of the front patio. Not sure why we couldn't be placed there when we had a reservation and there was an open seating area??
The staff were exceptional- very friendly and attentive but no pushy. I recommend trying the sparkling!

No food available currently. There should be an 'NA' rating for that.

It's a bit pricy, but that may be necessary in order for them to stay open. One wine in particular was great - we bought a bottle.

Service was great, and they are handling Covid well. Limited tables in front, but we lucked out and got to sit there. The back is nicely spaced, and is pleasant, but the view is of nearby buildings.

Always a great experience at Summerland Winery. Being a member has nice perks. Between the quality of the wine, the beautiful location, and the always friendly and helpful staff, I can’t recommend this place enough.

The safety measures were extraordinary and respectful. I highly recommend a relaxing visit to Summerland during Covid and afterward. It’s a great ambiance and the wines are phenomenal.

We enjoyed a takeout lunch from the local cafe with our wine tasting. Sitting on the beautiful patio made for a perfect way to start our day... Really enjoyed the Chardonnay. Staff were attentive and friendly and knowledgeable.

I rated food as 1 only as there was no food. Could not finish survey without choosing a number. Would have loved to sit on front patio Instead of back (as tables were open) but still glad we made our usual stop!
