About
Passionately focused on Rhône varieties, Andrew Murray has consistently crafted highly acclaimed red wines and white wines in the Santa Ynez Valley for 20 years. His Viogniers, single-vineyard Syrahs, and blends led Robert Parker, Jr. to refer to AMV as, “…one of the shining stars in the Santa Barbara firmament.”

On a recent trip to the Los Olivos area our friends took us to one of their favorite wineries. I understand why.....the wines were very good and we enjoyed the atmosphere. We sat outside and it was a beautiful day. We were offered cheese and crackers that were pre-packaged from a store and the crackers were in an unopened box as well. It was kind of disappointing - I mean, we could have brought our own snacks - and I would recommend that to anyone else in the future. When we were done we ordered a few bottles of wine but it turned out the menus were recently printed and the price on the sheet for one of the wines was wrong. Our server - can't remember her name right now - said to keep it a secret because Andrew would be upset if he knew since the new wine lists had just been printed. We agreed and assumed she would honor the price printed on the list for us. She didn't. I will never go back.

The first impression of this winery was quite good as the location is quite nice. The outdoor area is beautiful and well shaded by oak trees. I was looking forward to the wines as I had heard good things, but I wasn't so impressed. First off, the waitress gave me tiny pours of each wine. Probably the smallest pours I've seen at any winery I've ever been to. Maybe three small sips. It was late in the day, so maybe she was just trying to get me out of there quickly? Not sure, but the pours were offensively small.

The wines themselves were just ok. The Grenache tasted just like Grenache should, but there was nothing particularly distinctive or exciting about the wines. I got their standard tasting with 5 wines. The Viognier was my least favorite, the Grenache, Mourvedre and GSM Blend were just meh, and the northern Rhone style Syrah was ok but not great.

Might be worth one try if you like Rhone-style wines but I won't be back.

We had a late afternoon reservation, and a fire near one of the wineries made us late to our time. They were very accommodating due to the circumstances, and seated us right away. We had been there pre-COVID and loved some of their wines, which were no longer available. The frustrating part of this wine tasting, is the tasting menu has no information about the wine. For instance, we tasted ROSÉ ESPÉRANCE and needed to learn it was of Cinsault. ENCHANTÉ was a Roussanne and Grenache Blanc blend. ESPÉRANCE turned out to be a GSM, heavily leaning towards Grenache. ROASTED SLOPE turned out to be Syrah co-fermented with 8% Viognier. Unfortunately, the winery doesn't offer guest wifi so we couldn't even read the winery website in between pours. While the wines were delightful, it would have been wonderful to have more tasting notes on the flight menu.

We both had a tasting flight. Most likely could have shared one. Wines were good. Purchased several whites, which I was low on in my inventory. Why does it always seem faster to get back to the freeway, than finding the winery from the freeway?

We truly enjoyed our wine tasting here. Our favorite wine Esperance is very complete in body and taste , reminds me of some of the best red blends we tasted in Tuscany.

Although we went during a heatwave, the tasting experience was quite nice. The wine selection off of the Estate Experience list was delicious. Very mature and competitive with some Sonoma wines. The E11even Playlist is unspectacular - except for some lingering taste of swettness, if this is what you prefer. The hosts were quite welcoming and did not require a reservation (they tend not to be as busy as the Napa/Sonoma area during the weekdays). If you're looking for a different tasting in the Santa Barbara area, definitely add this one to your list.

Make sure you stop and visit AMV during your wine tour of the area. The wine tasting was excellent and the staff was warm and welcoming. Worth the visit.

We had been to Andrew Murray years ago, but clearly they have remodeled their facilities. The tasting room has a gorgeous designer sitting area, wine room, barrel room and modern feel. Megan greeted us and poured us a lovely flight of wines, explaining differences in several labels they sell. We left with multiple bottles of Viognier, Cinsault and Mourvedre. The wine is spectacular and the tasting room alone is worth the visit.

I had never been here before nor tasted the wines. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed them. Tasting room service was efficient, if not quite friendly. One drawback- most tasting rooms I’ve been to (and I’ve been to a lot) if you buy one bottle, your tasting is free. Here you have to buy three bottles to get your tasting comped.

Can’t miss this winery’s tour and tasting. Krystal was our tour and tasting guide and she was first class! She is so passionate about the vineyards, winery and wines and was more than willing to accommodate our group’s requests. This was one of the top wineries on our 9-person wine group’s tour, visiting 19 wineries and tasting rooms during our 6 ½ days in the wine country. The owner, Andrew Murray, had a hand in creating our incredible cheese plate and it was more than we could consume.
We had a delicious lunch in their impressive tasting room with the food from Panino (Los Olivos) coordinated through Andrew Murray’s Megan Washington.

Plan a visit to this winery if you are in the Santa Barbara Wine Country.
