This is a unique place, for sure. They must have 50 different wine sections on the wall - you are given an electronic card to keep track of what you taste on a self-serve basis. The first time we visited it was solely for wine tasting and we were disappointed. We missed the "personal connection," talking to the staff about... More

Yes my husband and my daughter and her hubby went here after Xmas. Quite cool actually with the wine bottles on the wall, you get a card and then try all the wines, but NOT FREE for sure, and some of the samples are quite expensive, one of them was $3 , by the time my daughter and I tasted...

fun wine sampling in a surprising location. This wine and tapas bar is in an industrial neighborhood, in a building where they bottle wines for many growers. Local wines can be self-serve if you choose, from about 30 taps. You can select to dispense 1- or 2-ounce tasting size or a full glass, and you purchases total up on you... More

My family and I get in as often as possible, and we are never disappointed. Service is always good and the food...well, you just have to jump in and try different things. I personally love the pizza! Also a great place to bring out of town friends to, you can enjoy the wine, visit, and share great food. And although... More

I've been here with family, friends, and colleagues since they opened a few years ago. Unique setting and facility. Big wine wall with meager wines, pricey for a sip or a glass. I hoped they would get better but they haven't improved. Mainly mediocre wines, skimpy food, and high prices. Servers are nice. A wasted opportunity next to a scenic... More

I guess I'm not a wine snob, because that is who they want to serve. I was not impressed by atmosphere, the staff, of the selections. They spend more money on advertising than most people spend on their housing. This is a tourist trap.

My husband and I met some friends here last night. We have never been here before and were just visiting in the area. We had a wonderful all around experience ! The beet salad, scallops and the butternut squash soup was among our very favorites. We enjoyed hanging out at the wine wall too.... Able to sample lots of wines... More

My wife, daughter, and I were all pleased with Avant. On a recent trip to Buellton/Solvang we decided to try Avant, having tried most of the other nice restaurants in the area. Two of our favorites are The Wine Merchant Café in Los Olivos and of course, the Hitching Post. Driving up to Avant is a surprise! You turn off... More

Very impressed with their approach to wine tasting: you get a "wine card" and every wine you taste is being charged to the card, and added to your check at the end of the night. You can try a 1 oz., and if you like it, keep going...and going...and going!!! The food was just OK -- we had better ribeye... More

As a customer you served yourself by selecting wine and size of serving. Either enough for at tasting or a glass. We tried a number of wines with the taste serving type. Great food to.
