Visit Muni Santa Barbara

Welcome!

Enjoying wine is important, but our first job is to look out for one another.  We don't want to be open if we can't keep you safe, keep our team safe, and follow the rules set forth by all of the various government agencies that keep all of us safe.  With that in mind, here's what we've got.

What You Need To Do To Stay Safe

We're open for outdoor service only.  The good news is that we are now allowed to intermingle our wine service with delicious beer from our next door neighbors at Third Window.  There are no more discrete areas for wine and beer drinking.  We are all friends and can drink wine or beer or both.

Reservations are ideal.  All guests must be seated to consume alcohol.

We cannot offer tastings - only wines by the glass or bottle.  Our sincere apologies to wine club members, but we cannot offer free tastings at this time.  Your discounts will apply to all purchases though!!

You must wear a mask when you arrive, until you're seated at your table.  Once you're seated, make yourself comfortable.  If you have to get up to use the bathroom, you'll have to put your mask back on. You must be seated at a table by our staff, and cannot walk around.

20% gratuity will be automatically added to every ticket for dine in service.

2019 Mubbly

Regular price $18.00 Free Local Delivery + Free Shipping on orders $49+
/

Mubbly is not the Champagne of Beers, it's the Beer of Champagnes.  We make it in a winery and bottle it in a brewery.  It's a blend of stuff like French Columbard, Chardonnay, and Riesling that we pick at low sugars and then ferment to dryness in stainless steel.  When it's all done, we filter it across the patio of the winery into the brite tank at Third Window who puts the carb on it for us and then packages it up.

The result is an easy-to-drink (like right out of the bottle), easy-on-the wallet sparkling wine.  Just pop off the cap, and smash it.  You're welcome.

2019 Bright White

Regular price $28.00 Free Local Delivery + Free Shipping on orders $49+
/
Will not ship until March 13, 2020
Drink Riesling!  There's no need to be scared of it (can you believe some people are?).

You Got This.  It's dry riesling. It's made with fruit from the glorious Santa Barbara Riesling site - Kick On Ranch - in Los Alamos.  We make 8 different passes through our 2 acre block during harvest, hand picking early in the morning and whole-bunch pressing each time.  The juice is fermented long and cold in stainless steel to maximize freshness and pump up those beautiful clean smells.  The wine tastes like you squeezed a lime on a wet quartz crystal after using it to smash up white flowers.  It's super quaffable, and just the slightest bit spritzy from short aging in stainless before bottling.

2018 Debra

Regular price $27.00 Free Local Delivery + Free Shipping on orders $49+

White Zin Saves Lives.  

You see, Zinfandel was first planted around the turn of the century, and the planting of Zin boomed soon after, becoming the most widespread variety in California.  These old Zin vines are treasured now, but for a long time after Prohibition, and the Great Depression, the fruit from these OG vineyards was used in the cheapest, lowest quality wines, and the demand was so low that many growers began tearing them out...

Until the 1970’s when an accidentally stuck fermentation (that thing when the yeast dies before all the sugar is converted to alcohol) was bottled sweet.  That sugary nectar became an instant hit with grocery store consumers, and the popularity of White Zin gave those old vineyards a new lease on life and a new home for the fruit.  White Zine still accounts for 10%! Of US wine sales.  


Debra is our homage to ‘White Zin’ - the most basic of blush for all you basic babies. Think ‘White Zin’, but dry and good. It’s named after Debra from the Beck song, who I imagine to be a big fan of the blush.  
                                                            
Debra is light, refreshing, and crisp. We only bottled 5 barrels of this wine that smells and tastes like strawberries, watermelon rind, dust and tangerine.

2018 Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir

Regular price $32.00 Free Local Delivery + Free Shipping on orders $49+
/

Our Pinot Noir is a made from some of Santa Barbara County’s great cool climate Pinot Noir vineyards. It’s a selection of barrels from Sanford & Benedict, Rio Vista, Riverbench, and Kick On Ranch. All the vineyard lots were fermented separately with as much as 100% whole clusters in a couple of the lots, to build in a little extra tannin and complexity.

The wine is crazy clear, pure, fresh and drinkable. It’s full of clean red fruits - loads of strawberries, raspberries, red currants, cherries and complex herby notes. Aromatically, there's heaps of dried herbs and bay leaves. The palate has ocean breeze acidity and great energy to ride along with its medium weight red fruits.

2017 Make the Time Dark Red Wine

Regular price $34.00 Free Local Delivery + Free Shipping on orders $49+
/

Relax with a dark red wine. Made from 60% Syrah, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 7% Alvarahao sourced and handpicked from three special vineyards in Santa Barbara County. This red blend encourages you to settle in and get comfortable.

This is our riff on the classic 'Dry Red' blend of Cab and Syrah that was pioneered in Australia. The Syrah this year is sourced from Tierra Alta Vineyard in Ballard Canyon. It’s rich and meaty... full of fleshy mid palate. The Cab is from leafy and herbal with firm tannin and currant-y acid.  There's a little bit of dark, floral Alvarahao (Portuguese grape) from Fess Parker's Rodney's Vineyard.

To make this wine, the Syrah and Cab lots are hand picked and harvested separately. In the winery, we completely de-stem the fruit and macerate on skins for 2 to 3 weeks. The wines are pressed to American Oak hogsheads (bigger barrels) that are actually coopered in Australia. The wine is aged for 20 months, Making the Time to soften and build complexity.

The result is a deeply concentrated wine full of meat, tar, vanilla bourbon-y char, crushed dark berries and licorice on the nose. The palate is rich, soft, and concentrated with blackberry, iron, and savoriness. The palate has concentrated flavor and a soft mouth feel, ripe with juicy mulberries, tart black currants, mocha, meat, and savory cedar flavors.
