We visited the place on a Thursday night and enjoyed it - we were served by Lisa, the owner, who was quite nice. The next day, we visited it during the Solvang WineWalk, and there was a barman instead of Lisa. Possibly because we were on the WineWalk, the guy was totally unfriendly, treated us quite bad, poured us the last bit of a bottle that was probably open for a few days already and did not give us any attention (although we were the only patrons at the place). We were really disappointed, I'm not going back there and I do not recommend it to anyone.

Stopped into this place for a quick pre-dinner drink, ended up staying for 3. Stuck to the beer rather than wine and the selection was fantastic. Had a few very tasty (and very strong!) local brews which were a great change from what we are used to getting in Britain. Everyone in the bar were incredibly friendly, from the other patrons to the woman behind the bar (can't remember her name, must have been that double IPA!). the fire was going and you just can't beat the atmosphere in this place.

If you love good beer, don't miss this place.

Owned by a local couple, this wine bar is open late and has comfy couches by a fireplace for you to relax on. The wife does a great job explaining origins of each wine you try. We loved this place so much, we came back both nights we were in town! I ended up buying two bottles of wine from here. Wish we lived close enough to stop by all the time!

This is a great little spot that usually has some live entertainment of sorts. Stumbled upon this little gem and its lovely owners on Friday night after dinner around the corner. With it being our first time to the area they recommended a few wineries we should check out and a map - and off we went! Great local beer selection as well, and the wines of course. They had a few great Ports :)
