We had a wonderful tasting at the tasting bar. The wines were execellent. It was very hard to decide which ones to but. The Chards and Pinots are excellent but I loved the Sangiovese blend and the Nebbiolo very good too.

went to ABC while in port on a cruise...had a wonderful wine tasting experience with Emily...she handled us and another small group with ease and knowledge. The wines are very good and come in a wide price range.

Ugh. While I suppose it is convenient that this tasting room is in downtown Santa Barbara, it was not an enjoyable experience. We headed in on a Friday afternoon. The bar was occupied, so we were told to sit at the side table. It was covered in boxes of wine and publications; we clear some space at the end. While... More

We went in after lunching at the restaurant nearby. There were two tasting menu selections, one basic, another, reserve that included the chardonnay that they promoted as having a high score at a higher price. We decided to take the latter. We did not really like 3 of the 5 samples; the chardonnay was good and a pinot was ok.... More

Although their wines were very good, the varieties were limited compared to others in the area which is what lead my rating, not the quality. Overall pleasant experience. The staff was helpful and pleasant. We did not have the auto-tip issue. The iPad did go to a tip choice screen and perhaps the other reviewer had never seen that previously... More

DO NOT GO IN THIS TASTING ROOM! This is outrageous and very unethical. We paid for a full flight wine tasting and had no problem doing that although all we wanted to taste was their Pinot noir wines. We also purchased one bottle of wine. We are from Canada so are very limited to what we can take home. The... More

The wines from this producer are across the board consistently very good to excellent. This tasting room is better than most in the they carry library wines as well as current releases. One can taste though those being poured in the glass for a reasonable price and also shop for wines on the shelves that extend beyond what is poured... More

Pleasant tasting room, fair wine pours, friendly approach, good wines. Just cant understand when paying that a gratuity was automatically prompted by the card payment machine? It put me off a bit.

We made a side trip to Santa Barbara from Solvang to see the area and visit the Au Bob Climat tasting room. Au Bon Climat have classic and very nice Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but the atmosphere seemed a bit sterile and businesslike - even early in the morning on a Thursday with no other visitors. The wines are worth... More

Great people, great wines, absolutely delightful service. Probably the best tasting room we have been to in our roadtrip in California. Highly recommended. Must Try : 2009 Pinot Noir Le Bon Climat 13.5% Clendenen Family
