Fabulous vintages, we tasted 2007 Syrah and several 2009 wines! Nowhere else can you get this quality for this price. And their wine club is amazing, only 12 bottles a year requirement and you decide what and when to buy! We brought a case home...More

This was one of our favorite tasting experiences in Solvang. The wines they were pouring were expensive and vintage - not what you usually get in other wineries. They also had small food samples with wine infused salts that were excellent. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.

The customer service was outstanding and they provide you with plenty of information. As a first timer my sister and I had lots of questions and they answered them with a smile. It is a family owned business. The wine was a bit strong since...More

One of my regular stops in SB wine country. Never disappointed. Scenic, easy to find winery, super friendly staff, and overall delicious wines. I typically don't like whites, but am a big fan of their pinot grigio. Also, picked up a merlot (yes, a merlot)....More
