My husband and I have been members of Bridlewood for years, as well as several other wineries in Santa Ynez/Los Olivos. Although each has its own charm, Bridlewood is our favorite. The wines are consistently outstanding; their viognier is without peer, and the pinot estate wines never disappoint. Most of all, we love the grounds, with a beautiful lake behind the race track and across a large lawn with weeping willows, a bridge, and cascade. Bridlewood has distribution parties every two months, with delicious hors d'oeuvres and desserts, prompting us to spend the night in the area so we can truly enjoy the ambience. We enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the vineyards in every season. Fall is our favorite with the changing colors, and the rustic sunsets. We always come away refreshed. The staff is welcoming and takes great pride in their wines; the tasting room is elegant; and picnics are allowed by the lake if one is a member, The facade has been created to look like a Mission with bell towers, and the fountain and patio evoke old California. We have never been disappointed, visiting a dozen times.
