Tastings & Tours

Wine Tasting at the Winery and Visitor Center

We invite you to visit our newly remodeled Winery & Visitor Center, located at the entrance of the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail, just minutes away from historic downtown Los Olivos.  Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will guide you through our Rhone Zone Flight and Andrew Murray Vineyard’s winemaking philosophies.

Our current Rhone Zone Flight at the Winery and Vistor’s Center features the following for $15:

2015 Grenache Blanc, Estate Grown, Santa Ynez Valley

2014 Grenache, Estate Grown, Santa Ynez Valley

2013 Mourvedre, Estate Grown, Santa Ynez Valley

Chocolate Flight

Our tantalizing Chocolate Flight features our Rhone Zone Flight of wines artfully paired with 4 Jessica Foster Confections Truffles for $20.  These Truffles are not “chocolates”…they are amazing works of art with fun flavors like Curry and Cinnamon Apple that pair perfectly with our wines.  We change the Truffles each time our tasting lineup changes, so you have even more reasons to visit us again, and again.

Principles of Cheese and Wine Pairing

Experience a guided tasting of four current Andrew Murray Vineyards released wines paired with four artisanal cheeses that complement the wines for $25. Learn how a proper pairing can elevate the pleasure you receive from the wine, the cheese and the tasty additions we have selected for each cheese. This is a great opportunity to explore the interplay between wine and food and how each can affect the way your taste buds experience flavor.

 Grape to Glass Tour

Our privately-hosted Grape to Glass tour will guide you through the pioneering history of Andrew Murray Vineyards, the Curtis Estate and the production of wine from vine to glass. Tours begin in our newly remodeled tasting room and continue with a walk through our vineyard focusing on our Rhone varietals and a discussion of our unique Terroir. The wine making process is then showcased from the crush pad to the tank room and finishing in the barrel cellar. Tours typically last between 30-45 minutes, depending on the volume of guests and depth of questions. The Grape to Glass tour also includes a progressive tasting of our current wine releases. Reservations are required.

Tours are offered at 11:00 am – 7 days a week.  Reservations are required.  Schedule your tour today by email Visit@AndrewMurrayVineyards.com or by phone at 805-686-9604 ext. 103.
