The tour includes showing how they develop the grapes and the how.why they do the entire process. You finish back in the adobe tasting room where... More

Hands down one of my favorite vineyards! Everything about it makes me smile. It's very inviting with a fun vibe and great atmosphere. Definitely not for the bougie and I'm glad. I've visited a few times so I guess you can say I'm a regular. If I lived nearby I'd probably hang out there every weekend.lol This is a boutique... More

This was the first stop on our 3,400 plus mile vacation. Never having visited a winery, I wasn't sure what to expect, but we could not have been more pleased. Our guide, Norma was delightful and well versed on all aspects of the winery.

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
