Nice tasting room. Very good service, but most of the wines were not to my taste. The Chardonnay Black Cap Reserve for $45 was the best that I tasted. Very good service, which was my primary reason for buying the slightly overpriced wine. The tasting...More

I was afraid that Black Jacks presence in Sideways would make it a cheesy place - not so at all. Despite their fame the staff were very knowledgable and provide the most generous tasting I saw of the 8 wineries visited. $12 for 8 pours....More

My second trip here. Blackjack has some of my favorite reds. Fun wine tasting with engaging staff. I like the location a couple of miles outside Solvang on the road to Los Olivos.

I've been to Blackjack twice, and the experiences were different. Try to select a non-peak time for a more relaxing visit. While visiting family in the north county area, I insisted on heading over to Solvang to sample some of the local wares. We visited...More

Visited Blackjacks winery as part of an arranged tour of three wineries and would say that Blackjacks was our favourite. It felt much more personal, warm and attentive. There is a lovely covered seating are for a picnic. Thoroughly enjoyable visit.

This is a "boutique" winery with a small production, so don't expect bells and whistles-just great wine. Our pourer, Allison, was terrific and spent lots of time describing the philosophy of Blackjack as well as wines of the region in general. The tasting is $12...More

The woman doing the pours was very informative on the wine making process. We learned quite a bit from her. She took her time and really helped us.

My husband and I visited Blackjack Ranch Vineyards on 2/27/15. We had a great time. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Would defiantly stop by again!
