I guess it's a personality thing. It was the best tasting room we tried. The wines were excellent and there was little pressure to buy (no guilt trips). It seems that Chris, the owner's, personality is the thing -- yah either love the guy or...More

We've visited many times over the years. All one can say is he pours some lovely wines from wineries w/o tasting rooms. Not the most chatty guy behind the counter but as I said some really nice wines.

The owner usually has good Pinot Noir for tasting. Never remembers us despite being there numerous times. I liked the Center of Effort Pinot Noir for $42. Tasting fee was $10. He tried to sell us a cheaper Alma Rosa for $7 more than the...More

The owner of this wine shop may know a lot about Pinot Noir, but has a lot to learn about customer service. He was disrespectful and awkward. He made a mistake with charging my credit card (double charged), and while he did correct the charges,...More

We took a drive from Solvang to Los Olivos. It was only a few miles from Solvang. The town is very small and quaint. There was a scarecrow contest going on and all of the shops were extremely creative. As well as many wonderful wine...More
