Bridlewood is one of my absolute favorites in the Santa Ynez wine region. Not only are all their pours scrumptious, but the service is always super friendly, fun, and knowledgeable. If you pull up and the gate is closed don't just leave, they will let...More

First off, I am an avid wino - self-proclaimed, but everyone knows this about me. And yet, I'd never joined a wine club. I recently joined Bridlewood's, however, this past weekend. Now, one might blame the early afternoon buzz on this and one might be...More

Having already agreed to pay for the "Elevated Tasting" we learned half-way through that the winery is actually owned by Gallo. Doing some more research after getting home it appears that a lot of the wines are mass produced from outside the region and only...More

Melissa hosted us and was very informative as well as charming! The lovely grounds and picnic area around the lake are very inviting and for club members only. We look forward to returning.

I'm going to the Santa Ynez Valley (Santa Barbara County) for a day trip this upcoming Saturday. I expect to arrive in the area around 9am for brunch, then will check out wineries the rest of the day before getting dinner in the early evening. 1) Can anyone recommend a good brunch restaurant in the Santa Ynez Valley?
