Fabulous vintages, we tasted 2007 Syrah and several 2009 wines! Nowhere else can you get this quality for this price. And their wine club is amazing, only 12 bottles a year requirement and you decide what and when to buy! We brought a case home...More

This was one of our favorite tasting experiences in Solvang. The wines they were pouring were expensive and vintage - not what you usually get in other wineries. They also had small food samples with wine infused salts that were excellent. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.

One of my regular stops in SB wine country. Never disappointed. Scenic, easy to find winery, super friendly staff, and overall delicious wines. I typically don't like whites, but am a big fan of their pinot grigio. Also, picked up a merlot (yes, a merlot)....More

As the name implies, this is a huge, sprawling, corporate-run winery conglomerate. NOT!!!! Just seeing if you were paying attention. Dana, Lauri (I think I spelled that right) and the owner, Roswitha (hard to spell and pronounced rose-VEET-ah) are pretty much the whole hospitality operation....More
