San Sebastian Winery, founded in 1996 is located at 157 King Street, St. Augustine, Florida in one of Henry Flagler’s old East Coast Railway buildings located just a few blocks from historic downtown. According to historians, this area is the birthplace of American wine, dating back to 1562. Today, San Sebastian ranks as one of Florida's premium wineries, and remains a pioneer in the development of table, sparkling and dessert wines from hybrid and muscadine grapes. 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. Port and Cream Sherry dessert wines are also produced by and sold under the San Sebastian brand. Together, these labels have won many awards for excellence in winemaking, over 300 so far with more to come each season. Every year more than 100,000 people are expected to visit the winery’s extensive tasting room and wine shop. San Sebastian Winery has an overall production of over 80,000 cases, (that’s over 960,000 bottles!). San Sebastian wines are sold at the winery and at major supermarkets and wine shops throughout Florida. “The Cellar Upstairs” Wine, Jazz & Blues Bar, open weekends, is located on the rooftop of the Winery building and is a best kept secret with locals. Open on weekends, featuring 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 while enjoying a glass of San Sebastian Wine and light appetizers.

This was an awesome winery tour! The history of San Sebastian is presented in a short movie on the 2nd floor; if you can make the steps, I believe I heard mention of an elevator. The movie and our tour guide were both very informative. In fact, the tour and the wine tasting itself, was one of the best we'd... More

Well organized tour with 10 min. video of history of winery and where the grapes are grown. After total tour of about 20 mins., guests were taken to the tasting room where we sampled about 9 - 10 wines, they were available for purchase at reasonable prices, also had a nice gift shop with unique items.

If you like to try different types of wines this is the tour for you. The best part of this tour is that it is free. Very short tour with an interesting video and then the fun begins around the bar on the first floor. We were offered samples of 6 or 7 different wines and enjoyed most of them.... More

We were at San Sebastian Winery on Sunday 12/4/2016. Enjoyed the wine tasting. Each wine was explained in detail. Ended up buy several bottles to take camping with us at the end of December.

The wine offered was one of the best around, Found that the VINTNERS RED was out standing, Made one think it was a grape juice as a kid. Maybe this is grape juice for ADULTS, The Vintners White is a great wine also. Had to go to the roof top sit back and enjoy the view with a few glasses... More

This was my first ever winery tour and wine tasting and I learned so much about how the wine is made, the history of wine in Florida, and how to properly taste wine. Was a lot of fun and I bought plenty of bottles for gifts and myself!
