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.
