The tercero wines tasting room is located in beautiful Los Olivos, CA, in the Santa Ynez Valley, 30 miles north of Santa Barbara. Our huge tasting room – actually, it’s one of the smallest in town – is located a block off the main street in the city, across the street from the Corner House Coffee and Stafford’s Chocolates.
The room itself features plenty of stainless steel and a really cool bar made using large wooden dowels. There is scientitic glassware on stainless shelves that hightlight the ‘alchmey’ aspect of winemaking. One noticable thing missing from the tasting room – tasting notes . . . because do you really care what the winemaker tastes in the wine? To me, it’s important to let everyone develop their own thoughts on each wine and not ‘lead’ them.
And don’t be surprised to see Larry himself in the tasting room, leading tastings or just adding ‘color commentary’.
We change up the wines offered regularly, and usually pour at least 5 at any given time. There is a nomimal tasting fee that is waived either when you join the wine club or if you purchase at least a few bottles during your visit.
The actual address for the tasting room is:
2445 Alamo Pintado Avenue, Suite 104 (entrance on San Marcos)
Los Olivos, CA 93441
PH – 805-245-9584
We are open Thursday through Monday from Noon until 5ish, but are more than happy to meet you there at others time by appointment.
We hope to see you come by sooner rather than later!!!!
