Jaffurs Wine Cellars

819 E Montecito St, Santa Barbara, CA 93103, USA

Craig Jaffurs, the owner and winemaker of Jaffurs Wine Cellars, is making some of the best wines in town. The tasting room is among the presses and barrels in the industrial-feeling winery. (Watch out for forklifts in the small parking lot.) For a tasting fee of only $15 per person, you can try wines like their viognier, which tastes of honeysuckles; their jammy, smoky, slightly spicy grenache; and, if you’re lucky and they happen to have it open, their reserve Upslope syrah, which has a rich, spicy flavor with notes of dried cherries and oak.
