This was my first time at a vineyard/cellar, so I had no intentions or expectations. The site itself was grand. I arrived about 15 minutes earlier than expected, but was greeted with a warm welcome. Kevin was super cool and the wines were the best I've ever had. I would definitely go back.

Experience was generic, at best. Wines were good. Server/pourer gave zero attention and rushed thru scripted description of each wine poured. No personal attention. No time for discussion. I had built this experience and the wines up. Very disappointed! Left apologizing.

Beautiful winery close to town in Santa Ynez. Bridlewood is a great place to visit if you want to experience the beauty of vineyards and the convenience of a tasting room close to town (it is equally scenic and convenient). The staff were very knowledgeable and provided a comprehensive, fun and casual experience. They had great bread and olive oil, too!

We LOVE this winery! In my opinion, it is the best one I've ever been to! The lake for the members to bring a lunch and eat at is amazing. I wish I could post my pics! The staff are so friendly and accommodating. We love visiting Cannonball (the horse) every visit. A suggestion would be to visit the Frontierland Grocery (upscale) to pick up lunch (as good as Whole Foods).
