The Cellar Upstairs Wine, Jazz & Blues Bar serves as the crowning jewel of San Sebastian Winery. Live music accompanies sweeping views of downtown and the San Sebastian river, with a menu that celebrates the flavor of San Sebastian’s award-winning wines.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sundays are prime time to enjoy alfresco entertainment, as live music intertwines with artfully prepared light bites accompanied by delicious wine and beer selections. An evolving menu of, house made tacos, wings, fresh salads, hearty sandwiches, to name a few and desserts pairs effortlessly with the wine and beer list at this local gem.
Crowd-grazing favorites include the Bistro Cheese Board with accoutrements that delight and daily-made Hummus plate with seasonal veggies and toasted pita points. Turkey and Brie served on fresh Ciabatta with Balsamic Aioli or lively Carnitas Street Tacos with cilantro crème fraiche bring big flavor to the table when paired with a selection of San Sebastian Wines and imported, craft and domestic beer.
Dance off dessert (we recommend the Sweet Cannoli Crisps drizzled in dark chocolate and raspberry port sauce.) while enjoying the “Best Live Music” in St. Augustine including ever popular bands as Beautiful Bobby Blackmon & the B3 Blues, The Committee, Hit Parade Band and Chillula.
This spectacular open-air venue is always free of a cover charge. Watch the sunset as the City lights up. Guests can park at the winery during monthly First Friday Artwalks and pick up the Free Trolley and enjoy the Cellar Upstairs before or after their excursion.
Founded in 1996, the winery is housed in one of Henry Flagler’s old East Coast Railway buildings located in historic downtown St. Augustine. The family-owned and operated corporation has evolved into a premium winery, known for pioneering the development of Florida grape varietals, including sparkling and dessert wines from Muscadine grapes. San Sebastian is also noted for the vinifera wines they produce including Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon along with signature Port and Cream Sherry dessert wines. San Sebastian wines have won multiple awards in excellence and continue to do so with each new season.
San Sebastian Winery offers daily tours of its 18,000 square foot wine production facility and 5,000-gallon stainless steel tanks where the wine is fermented and stored, prior to bottling. A highlight of the tour includes an informative wine tasting.
