San Sebastian Winery - Review

Wine tasting is an art, and not simply sipping, swishing and swallowing. A connoisseur of wine can distinguish the taste from one fine wine to the other. Stored and aged properly, makes all the difference to a tasty wine. The San Sebastian Winery has won over 550 awards so far with more to come each season. Vintage-dated varietals from hybrids such as Stover and Blanc Du Bois are produced and marketed along with blended and sparkling wines from native Muscadine grapes at this winery.

San Sebastian Winery, created in 1996 is situated at 157 King Street, St. Augustine, Florida in one of Henry Flagler’s old East Coast Railway. According to historians, this area is the birthplace of American wine, dating back to 1562. San Sebastian is considered as one of Florida's premium wineries, and remains a forerunner in the development of table, sparkling and dessert wines from hybrid and muscadine grapes. Port and Cream Sherry dessert wines are also produced by and sold under the San Sebastian brand. San Sebastian wines are sold at the winery and at major supermarkets and wine shops throughout Florida. With over 18,000 square feet under roof, they have 40,000 gallons of wine storage capacity and their automated bottling line allows them to bottle 1250 cases of wine per day.

Wine tasting involves several steps. The wine should be poured into a clear glass and a few minutes should be taken to see the colour of the wine. White wines are actually yellow, green or brown in colour, and Red wines are a pale red or dark brown. Once you taste the wine, you can feel the bold and rich flavours around your tongue. When you first open a bottle of sparkling wine, the carbon dioxide aroma instantaneously fills the air.

A feast for all of your senses, sparkling wine can instantly put you at ease. Drinking this wine is a feast for your taste buds, bringing several different flavours to rest on your tongue at the same time. All this is taught upon your arrival at San Sebastian Winery. You will be greeted by their friendly staff who will take you on an interesting journey through the complete wine making process. After a short audio-visual presentation in theatre upstairs, you will enjoy a guided walking tour of the 18,000 square foot wine production facility.

Discover the art of winemaking in the rustic but authentic Barrel Room, learn the details of the 5,000 gallon stainless steel tanks where the wine is fermented and stored prior to bottling. You will then be taken through all the exciting steps of wine tasting, while enjoying San Sebastian Premium Wines. The wines made here are mostly muscadine grapes. Recent scientific analysis has revealed that muscadine grapes contain the highest levels of antioxidants and ellagic acid of any other fruit tested. Fresh muscadine grapes and many muscadine grape products provide many health benefits as well.

Wine and Jazz Bar is open weekends, located on the third floor rooftop patio, serving light appetizers, San Sebastian wine and imported beers. The bar features incredible live music from a wide range of talented local and regional Bands. Relax to the music and enjoy the tremendous views overlooking the St. Augustine skyline. San Sebastian Winery offers a full-service Basket Department, where their staff custom-make a wide variety of special order baskets as well as a large selection of pre-made baskets. All baskets offer a wide assortment of San Sebastian Wines, with choices of gourmet cheeses, chocolates, wine accessories, specialty books, linens and tasty spreads and dipping sauces.

San Sebastian Winery, St Augustine Reviews

  • Free wine tasting - you get I think about 6 different wines. Staff was all really friendly, even when they were very busy. The wine is delicious and very reasonably priced. The upstairs lounge and outdoor rooftop bar are nice. I didn't try any of the food, but there were a lot of people eating, so I imagine it is great!

  • We were very disappointed. Our first time there. It was a self guided tour...we had no idea what to look at. We stopped at the wine sampling booths and these were some of the most unfriendly people we've seen here in St Augustine. They didn't seem very willing to give out samples. Only one of them really taught us anything. Didn't get to try the food. We didn't stay long.

  • The wine tasting was mildly disappointing. They advertise this thorough, educational tour, but apparently on the weekends they just let you wander from station to station unattended. Some of the wine was okay but some was WAY too sweet. I prefer sweet wines, but it tasted like grape juice.

  • On our way through St. Augustine, we stopped here. We are on a schedule, and do enjoy a wine tasting. Well forget it, because you have to take the tour, then taste 8 wines. I don't think this is smart. We would have enjoyed tasting a few, that is a safer way. So we were waiting, no one talked to us. Being ignored, not very friendly either. Then told, you have to take the tour! WOW. Bad experience

  • We did the tour and tasting some years ago. We now go to buy the local Florida wine. There is a nice selection. The wine runs just a bit sweeter then wines from colder climates. The roof top deck is a pleasant way to share a bottle of wine and small plates. Pleasant environment with good wines.
