Welcome to Wine Country


Explore vintage Santa Barbara

Ever since the release of the movie Sideways, people have been bending over backwards to get to Santa Barbara wine country. And as our guest, it's so simple: Walk out the door and let the wine tasting begin. Santa Barbara’s Urban Wine Trail includes several stops immediately surrounding Kimpton Canary Hotel, as well as in the nearby Funk Zone and Midtown areas, that showcase the more than 60 varietals grown here.

In addition, Santa Barbara's vineyards are just a 45-minute drive away, encompassing postcard-perfect winding country roads and gently rolling hills dotted with coastal oaks. Don’t have a designated driver? Experience wine country with a customized, private wine tour provided by Coastal Concierge (for more information, please dial our Front Desk at 1-805-884-0300).

Kimpton Canary Hotel is undoubtedly a favorite among Santa Barbary winery hotels. According to Travel + Leisure, “there may be no better place to relax after a day of wine-drinking than in a poolside cabana under the palm trees” at Kimpton Canary. And don’t forget – you can also make amazing local and global wine discoveries right inside our hotel, at Finch & Fork.
