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 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

Take a moment while you're here to sit on the outdoor patio with a glass of wine in hand and just take in the natural beauty. On a sunny day, of which there are plenty here, you'll want to spend the whole afternoon doing nothing. If you prefer your day to be a little more active, I'd highly recommend the... More

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
