It was in a great location with great views in a beautiful mission style building. The wine varieties were limited. The tasting fee for a flight was a bit high - $15 for a flight. Gifts were also limited.

Very pretty estate. Take a picnic, or buy one there. Layne, our tasting server was super fun and delightfully full of accessible knowledge. Of course the wines were lovely. Big fan of the chardonnay (it's the stainless steel eggs) and the grenache.

Very interesting place. It used to be a thoroughbred recovery facility. You can still see the tracks/etc. that was used to rehabilitate horses. The wine was great and the service excellent. Great place to visit.

3rd stop on our wine tour with Grapeline. This is the prettiest winery we saw. Very good for photos in the rear where the horsetrack is. Wines were very good and the wine pourers were friendly and knowledgeable. If you are touring on your own, make sure you visit this one.

The winery and surrounding grounds are nestled in a picturesque place in the Santa Ynez valley, about 20 minutes from Solvang. They have a picnic area, and some tables overlook a lake. The sommeliers are friendly and helpful, and there are some nice wines included in the tasting.

I recently attended a members only event that was amazing. Good trucks, vendors, live band and unlimited pours for 3 hours. They have a nice lake where you can have a nice picnic. Great for a nice afternoon of relaxing.

The wines were not our favorite here, but we loved the grounds and the expertise of the guys behind the counter. The whole thing felt a little to "stuffy/uppity" for our particular tastes but we didn't have a bad time.

Ok the grounds and winery are beautiful but can the wines match the decor? Absolutely! Good Chardonnay & stunning Syrah!. Knowledgeable staff who are willing to go the extra when they discover you are a wine geek! Tour the grounds, enjoy the view from the tower and bring a picnic and enjoy a glass overlooking the estate.

Dust devils were swirling into the air when I drove up the lane to Bridlewood Estate Winery. This place is big. The impressive hacienda façade is up a few steps from the parking area and a gurgling fountain. Dust blew in the door with me. The tasting room is spacious and elegant, and Kathy did a great job walking me... More
