San Sebastian Winery, founded in 1996 is located at 157 King Street, St. Augustine, Florida in one of Henry Flagler’s old East Coast Railway buildings located just a few blocks from historic downtown. According to historians, this area is the birthplace of American wine, dating back to 1562. Today, San Sebastian ranks as one of Florida's premium wineries, and remains a pioneer in the development of table, sparkling and dessert wines from hybrid and muscadine grapes. Vintage-dated varietals from hybrids such as Stover and Blanc Du Bois are produced and marketed along with blended and sparkling wines from native Muscadine grapes. Port and Cream Sherry dessert wines are also produced by and sold under the San Sebastian brand. Together, these labels have won many awards for excellence in winemaking, over 300 so far with more to come each season. Every year more than 100,000 people are expected to visit the winery’s extensive tasting room and wine shop. San Sebastian Winery has an overall production of over 80,000 cases, (that’s over 960,000 bottles!). San Sebastian wines are sold at the winery and at major supermarkets and wine shops throughout Florida. “The Cellar Upstairs” Wine, Jazz & Blues Bar, open weekends, is located on the rooftop of the Winery building and is a best kept secret with locals. Open on weekends, featuring incredible live music from a wide range of talented local and regional Bands. Relax to the music and enjoy the tremendous views overlooking the St. Augustine skyline while enjoying a glass of San Sebastian Wine and light appetizers.

Best tour and tasting I have ever experienced. Gale was our tour guide and she was extremely knowledgeable about wine. I have been on many wine tours and not learned 20% of what she told us. Tours are all day when they get a crowd and take about an hour including the tasting. They gave you 8 tastings and they... More

Interesting movie, tour and wine tasting. One of my favorites was the hot wine that you can make with red wine, brown sugar and mulberry. Recipe attached.

On my birthday we decided to swing by and purchase a case of the ROSA. Already familiar with the lovely bouquet we were sold and only wanted to sample the one taste to verify the purchase. Got our cup and skipped all the bottom floor, headed up stairs, and got a little winded. Paused because I'm recovering from recent knee... More

My wife and I toured the San Sebastian Winery during our honeymoon. The staff is extremely knowledgeable about the wine and the process making and bottling the wine. The quality of the wine is outstanding. The food at the wine bar upstairs is outstanding. I recommend trying the Port wine.

We've done this tour before, and this one was not as good as in the past. I prefer the tasting to go along as you're touring, which they were doing for the group before us. This tasting was downstairs at the bar and it was difficult to hear the guide because she was soft spoken and there was a rowdy... More

Great way to spend half an hour or so. Small winery, so quite a short tour, but lots of interesting background, and a good variety of wines to taste.
