My wife and I went on a wine tasting tour of The Rideau Vineyard. We got our tickets thru Travelzoo, and it was totally worth it. Our tour guide Norma, walked us thru the winery and along the way told us the story of how Rideau Vineyard came to be. It was very interesting. You get to taste the different... More

The best part about this winery is the gorgeous setting. Just outside the tasting room is a lush grassy area, plenty of shade to enjoy a glass or two of wine. The wine is quite good as well. Rhône-style wine, GSM's, Syrahs. The pourers seemed very knowledgable and friendly. Tasting fees were waived when we purchased 3 bottles. If you... More

My husband and I visited Rideau Vineyard on 2/27/15. It was pretty busy, but we were able to find a seat at the bar. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

Very busy. Hard to get served. My wife and I liked the 2013 Riesling ($24) and a Bon Temps Red ($22), but did not like the more expensive Reds. Tasting fee of $12 was not refunded with a purchase of two bottles.

I think this was the coolest winery that we visited. They grounds are gorgeous, with a nice grassy area with lots of tables and chairs, and a beautiful outdoor patio. The main building is actually one of the oldest adobe buildings in California, and is really beautiful inside. The coolest thing is that they also have a small kitchen and... More

One of the better vineyards to visit for a tasting in the Santa Ynez valley. Decent wines, friendly staff, interesting old tasting rooms.

We packed ourselves a picnic and enjoyed this park like setting as we had our wine tasting. It is a beautiful old building filled with history. Well worth a visit.

Very nice and beautiful winery! Wine tour only $35/couple with Groupon purchase. We met the owner and enjoyed a band on the grass after our tour. Best time to go is the 1 pm tour on a Saturday or Sunday.

We found this little gem on Groupon and had such a great time there! Our tour guide was informative, fun and had the most enchanting Irish brogue! Thank you my fine and generous '31st cousin'! (...as she referred to me, being Irish too. ;->) The pairing was terrific and we had the opportunity to order pizza for lunch afterwards. It... More
