Reza lead our tour and we learned so much about the wine making process. The wine they make is delicious and we took home a giant growler of their wine on tap. The educational component made it the perfect start to our wine tasting weekend. This has to be one of the best value Groupons we've purchased.

Not only is this historic adobe and vinyard beatiful and relaxing to visit, the staff are personable and have an amazing memory for preferences! I'm a fan of reds, and Iris Rideaux has been making some excellent ones for years. Her expensive reds are (of course) exquisite.. but she also makes a terrific blend known as 'Bon Temps' which is...

We had such a blast here. From the moment we walked in the door we just felt like we were at home. The staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgable. They were having a two for 1 tasting special, so we spent an hour chatting away and enjoying some delicious wine. We were lucky enough to meet the owner, Ms Iris.... More

It's been several years since I originally visited this winery, and the wines are just as good now. Located on Alamo Pintado between the towns of Solvang and Los Olivos, this is a winery you have to drive to. The tasting room, built in old Adobe style, is decorated in New Orleans style paying homage to the owner who is... More

What a lovely experience. We scheduled a full day of wine tours and tastings while visiting Santa Barbara. The tour company picked the stops as we did not know the area and this vineyard was not on their list. After reading the reviews, we asked them to include this one. It turned out to be the best tasting and tour... More

What a wonderful place, the staff is friendly and welcoming. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. The wine is top notch, and if you have the chance to meet with the owner Iris she will make you feel right at home. Bring a picnic and enjoy your food on the grounds with a glass or bottle of wine. There is also... More

We had a wonderful experience with friends at the Rideau Vineyard. The wines are sold only on location so do not look for them anywhere else. We signed up for a "tour" and it is the best thing to do. We gathered in the old house (now an historical monument) for a kick off taste of wine and a bit... More

We had the best tour from Norma. She was enthusiastic, passionate and a fabulous tour guide! The wine was tasty and the tour was very interesting and entertaining thanks to Norma. Highly recommend this tour!

We purchased a tour and tasting for 4 via Groupon. We decided to make our trip to the Solvang area on a Monday to avoid any crowds and have a relaxing experience. The winery was very pretty and very homey. There is a nice grassy area and flowers all around which would make it lovely to have a picnic before... More
