From Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, Bridlewood’s range of critically acclaimed wines are handcrafted with care and tell the colorful story of the Central Coast, including the relaxed lifestyle, local cuisine and incredible vineyards. A bottle of Bridlewood wine is a combination of expert grape selection and craftsmanship. Our winemakers strategically chart a course throughout the premier regions of California’s Central Coast—including Monterey County, Paso Robles, Edna Valley and Santa Barbara County— to find a distinct blend of grapes. In the winery, each lot is fermented separately and then blended together, creating the perfect combination of flavors and textures. Visit Bridlewood’s stunning 105-acre estate and tasting room in the heart of Santa Barbara County to discover what makes Bridlewood one of the premier estate vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley.

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).

Our group of 14 arrived on a gloomy, rainy day, but had a great experience overall--I just wish we'd been able to enjoy the outdoor space more than we did. The wine was excellent--you ended up with several new wine club members as a result. And the team was very gracious and welcoming. Overall, a big thumbs up!

The staff are all wonderful: very friendly and knowledgeable, and able to answer just about every question. The Club Members room was almost full when we arrived, but the staff still were able to warmly greet us and get us seated quickly. Wish I could remember our pourer's name: he was great!

The grounds are beautiful but the wines don’t match the ambiance. Paid $20 for a tasting and felt that was way too much. I thought we were to get a tour when I registered but it didn’t happen. There are so many great properties in the area I’ll likely skip this one the next time.

Great experience - not members and wished we could have had access to the lake as my wife doesn't drink (it's an allergic reaction). we went here because she loves vineyards that have lakes, horses, beautiful settings, etc. it's a great place for both of us as I love the surroundings as well. The wine exceeded my expectations. didn't join the club as I have too many memberships.

It couldn't have been better. After an entertaining sampling, we bought a bottle to go with the Thanksgiving leftovers we brought and basked in the sun picnicking by the lake. We followed that with a stroll around the coral and a second bottle under the porticos watching the sunset. Can't beat that now, can ya'?.

Just driving up to the property, you know this place means business. They were extremely hospitable, providing everything I needed to make something over the top special for my fiance. They even helped me track down a local photographer to take pics! We will be back!
