Taste of Santa Barbara

Our tasting room, located in the historic Presidio neighborhood of downtown Santa Barbara at 813 Anacapa Street, Suite B, features both current releases and library wines of Au Bon Climat, Clendenen Family Vineyards, and Jim Clendenen’s other creative wine endeavors. Our knowledgeable and helpful staff will guide you through your tasting and can help you find the perfect wine from over 100 different wines available for sale. While ABC’s focus is Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, we have wines crafted from over 16 other grape varieties. The quality and vast selection of wines available are unmatched in Santa Barbara.

Library Wines

Our wines are beautifully balanced, age gracefully, and have shown well for decades. Given our 40 years of making wine, we have amassed a very extensive wine library. An ever-changing offering of library wines is tasted and available for sale in the tasting room. A gift of cellar-aged wine is perfect for the wine enthusiast in your life. Large format wines from magnums to jeroboams are also available.
