This was the best wine tasting experience we have had. The fellow that served us gave a lot of helpful information and we really liked the wines. Can not wait until our state allows us to have wine mailed so we can order some. The surrounding area is nicely dotted with vineyards.

We enjoyed many of their wines. The location and buildings are spectacular. The reserve tasting is the best. Only one of two that I would recommend in the immediate area.

7 of us made a reservation for 2 pm on a Saturday afternoon. We set up our picnic lunch on one the many patio tables and proceeded to our wine tasting: 5 samples for $15. When two of our party decided to join the membership at the winery, all of us were suddenly comped, which was a nice surprise. Those... More

Modern, smart looking winery with beautiful grounds and picnic tables. Bridlewood is owned by the Gallo family and offers wine which although an upgrade from Gallo is average at best for the area. This is a slick, corporate establishment and while the pourers are pleasant, they are focused on moving groups and tours through the facility. Worth stopping if you're... More

Good 2012 Chardonnay Santa Barbara County for $25. Most of their wines are just average for this area. Reserve tasting fee of $15. Beautiful location surrounded by vineyards.

Nice property however the wines were unimpressive. Will not be back. There are too many other wineries in the area if you are a true connoisseur.

I stayed in Solvang and drove over to Bridlewood Estate Winery for wine tasting. The grounds are just amazing. The rollowing wineries and the setting is just spectacular. The wine tasting experience was enhanced as the staff is super knowledgeable. I can definitely see it as a perfect wedding spot for anyone that is looking to have a great romantic... More

I have been buying Bridlewood wine for a few years now and for my Bachelorette party, I thought wine tasting would be a fun idea! We booked a tour through captain jack's tours and Tracy our guide was phenomenal. She had a 15 pass van and chauffeured us to the wineries and we requested Bridlewood as one of our stops.... More

The winery grounds are beautiful, and if you're planning a picnic lunch, this would be a fantastic choice. However, if you're interested in getting a better understanding of the area's wine and winemaking, I'd look elsewhere. The entire experience felt uncomfortably commercial (perhaps in part because the winery is now owned by E&J Gallo). Our tasting was split between two... More

What a gorgeous winery. The grounds are beautiful, the winery building is beautiful, the views are stunning and the wines ... delicious! I had seen Bridlewood Estate wines but had never tried them. Now I'll definitely be on the lookout for their wines when shopping or dining. It was a very enjoyable, relaxing visit. I recommend it to you.
