If you are looking for an average winery, where a bunch of people line up at a bar and one attended pours you different wines and an average inside and outside then go here.

Add this as a stop in Los Olivos/ Santa Ynez area. Friendly folks, tasted 6 nice wines. Just a relaxing vibe. Pretty scenery. So close to Solvang and LO, but feel like nothing else around, just you and winery.

We arrived just as the vineyard opened, so it was relatively quiet. The vineyard became busy pretty quickly, however the staff were able to maintain the excellent service levels at all times.
