Deep Sea Tasting Room

Continuing with our Urban Wine Trail private winery venues, Deep Sea Tasting Room, located on the 2nd floor of Stern’s Wharf shops, is a reception venue that showcases breathtaking 360 degree views of the Pacific coastline, Channel Islands, and Santa Barbara Harbor. The tasting room is home to California Central Coast wines- Conway Family Wines, including the Deep Sea and Rancho Arroyo Grande portfolios, which are both exquisite options to serve your guests.

Completely unique to Santa Barbara, "Deep Sea" features large windows on all four walls, providing a beautiful view no matter where you are standing. The tasting room features dark wood ceilings, a polished hard wood floor and spotlight lighting which adds to the cozy and sophisticated nautical feel, creating the perfect waterfront atmosphere.

An oversized balcony offers intimate seating areas overlooking breathtaking views of the Santa Ynez Mountains and the American Riviera. An ideal place for a wedding weekend activity, this Urban Wine Trail stop is a must do when planning your itinerary for a Santa Barbara wedding, especially if you and your guests love the beach, ocean and good wines!
