Called "a hidden gem" by Los Angeles Magazine, The Deep Sea Wine Tasting Room location is unrivaled for view and scenery.

You cannot beat this LOCATION for wine tasting. Unfortunately, the wine didn't live up to the expectations. Giving it a 2 Star rating solely due to the ambiance. Wine was 1 star. Reco you stop and hang with one of the non-wine beverages (they had San Pellegrino in several flavors available) and then hit the "Funkzone" off Anapamu Drive to... More

The Deep Sea is located on Stearn's Wharf and has excellent outside seating with excellent views. We didn't do a tasting but bought a bottle and enjoyed it outside while admiring the views. The Octopus Merlot is a good choice if you are into reds.

We went to this winery/tasting room & really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. It was pretty crowded, and had great wine.

Great laid back location with rooftop / deck seating overlooking the ocean. If you drive out on the wharf, stop in for a sampler. Decent wines and decent prices. Won't be buying cases of it, but a great overall experience.

During our office retreat we stopped by Deep Sea Wine Tasting on the Santa Barbara Wharf, and had a wonderful time. They had plenty of room for 13 people, and the wine was excellent.

Took the train up, dropped our bags off at the hotel and headed to Stearn's Wharf. The Deep Sea tasting room was a great way to enjoy some good wine and enjoy the ocean view.
