We're honored to have been voted "Best Wine Shop" for the last four years by readers of John Dickson's Santabarbara.com website, and for the last three years in the Santa Barbara Independent's annual "Best Of" poll.
Our staff (Bob Wesley, Victoria Newhall and Dennis Ferguson) has sixty years of combined experience in wine retailing. We taste everything we put on the shelves and we can help you find the perfect bottle for your specific needs.
We ferret out all the mediocrities to protect you from their barnyardy, acidic, fruitless assault. Shop only our chosen favorites, the good stuff: absolutely no mutts, just the pick of the litter!
Focusing on California and the central coast, our selection of close to a thousand different bottlings runs the price gamut from under $10 all the way to the stratosphere. We have a multitude of favorites in the under $20 realm as well as an extensive inventory of rarities, cult wines and collectibles.
At the Winehound, the search for exceptional wines crosses the globe, spans the seas, and sometimes forces us to wander to the back warehouse to see what's laying around, as we search for the best vino on the planet.
