During the 70-minute wine tastings and classes, which are held at 3:30 p.m. on Sundays, guests learn how wine is made, view the winery's production facility, and taste two red wines, two white wines, and two dessert wines.

The winemaking course is composed of four sessions, held on weekends. During the first class, students learn about and participate in crushing and pressing. The second session, a racking class, includes a barrel tasting. Students blend wines and learn to create their desired taste in the third class. The course ends with students hand bottling and labeling six wines to bring home. In addition, there is a potluck to conclude the class.

Giessinger Winery

According to the clever folks at Giessinger Winery, the best wine is the one you like. Following that logic, they invite visitors into tasting rooms to sample the winery's many varieties and figure out which most agrees with their palate. Bestowed with the honor of Santa Barbara's Best Winery and Best Tasting Room in Santa Barbara by the U.S. Commerce Association in 2013, resident winemaker Edouard Giessinger and his associate Justin Tatum also lead groups through the nuanced process of crafting wines during comprehensive classes, wherein visitors can learn how wine is made, visit the production facility, and even taste wines.
