This winery has the best wines and is in a lovely setting beneath the starkness of the dry landscape. Staff were helpful and the wines were great.

Handsome architecture & landscaping enhance a consistently good tasting experience at this friendly family enterprise, one of the oldest in the Valley. It’s a short scenic drive to reach its site near Los Olivos. Definitely put this on your list to try.

Yes, it's great for families, and yes, I believe outside food is allowed, but not outside wine. :) Best to check directly with the winery for details. Have a great time!
