Stopped in with my husband while we were walking around Solvang. We split the white and red tasting. The woman serving was lovely and told us about her family and the winery, wine maker, etc... Very friendly. Did not love the wines but liked her...More

Great server and a nice, casual ambience. Unfortunately, the pinots we tasted were a bit off. We checked with the server, and the bottles had been opened that day. I'm not sure what was the cause. Regrets.

We liked the wines in this tasting room. There is a strong dog/ animal theme, which was cool to us. The winemakers promote rescue dogs and welcome dogs inside. Look for 2-1 coupons at the Visitors Center.

We randomly walked into this winery and was very pleasantly surprised by the excellent wine they offered in their tasting. We didn’t end up purchasing a bottle but I think I regret not doing so. Two thumbs up. Highly recommend.

We visited on recommendation and were the only people in the tasting room so got highly personal service and a great chat with the laidback owner. The unusual rose is well worth a try and the tasting was great value for money as well as...More

Stopped in for a quick tasting and ended up staying for about 90 minutes. It was Tuesday and the town was quiet - there was plenty of room at the counter. This is a great place for enthusiasts of all levels. We are not experts,...More

We went to a couple of the fancy vineyards during the day and paid through the nose for four small pours and decent but overpriced wines. Then came back into Solvang and spent the rest of the afternoon at Carivintas. Didn't plan to stay all...More
