  • I'm not much for going on wine tours, but I'm glad that I did the one offered at Bridlewood Estate Winery. The grounds alone are a sight to behold, with sweeping panoramas of the Santa Ynez Valley, a tree-lined driveway leading up to the estate buildings, 140+ acres of vines, gazebos and sitting/picnic areas throughout, etc. There's even a man-made lake for vineyard-specific members located in what would have been the center green of a horse racing track. Our tour guide, Kevin, was really knowledgeable and very accommodating of all the questions we had. I think it helped that he grew up in the area, but he's also schooled in all there is to know about the wine produced by the estate, and also the company writ large. I would definitely recommend this tour! The tour closing included a wine tasting of the estate's best offerings. YUM!
  • This winery is worth the visit. Beautiful entrance with large oak trees lining the driveway. Prior to it being turned into a winery, it used to be a stallion farm to rehabilitate race horses that were injured. The wines are decent, with a selection or Chardonnays, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Cabernet. Wines are from the Santa Ynez, Santa Rita and Santa Marie's AVA regions.
  • Beautiful place but poor wines and intimidating service makes it one to avoid. There are better wines and service in the area, however if you are passing park up and get the camera out, it's stunning.
  • Love this place. Courtney was a great help in helping us do the comparative tasting. Became a member on the spot since the grounds were awesome and the wine is delicious (esp. the 2013 Syrah).
  • Beautiful winery. So beautiful in fact that i proposed to my now wife there!
