  • Sunstone was an unplanned stop while in the Solvang area but we decided to go before heading to Santa Barbara. Wow! Are we glad we did. Ashley was so friendly, energetic, knowledgeable about the wine. Great outdoor space with corn hole and picnic tables. We sat outside and enjoyed a bottle of wine. We loved all the wines, especially the Rose, and joined the club! Thanks Ashely for a great experience!
  • You can really feel completely removed from the madness with a visit here. The setting for the winery is spectacular. The hills roll so beautifully. The stonework is magnificent. The wines are sweet and lovely. I will absolutely be back.
  • Really enjoyed tasting at Sunstone! Erika was super knowledgeable and catered the tasting to what we like. We tasted on the patio but walked around inside too and tried their olive oils, which were really good. Beautiful grounds, kid and dog friendly, and great wines!
  • We visited this winery after another local one and found this one to be much better as far as service, atmosphere and even wine... Gina served us our wine, you could tell wine was her passion which made the experience that much more enjoyable. She was personable, friendly, educational, and even gave us recommendations on what to see during our trip in Solvang. The only thing I guess would be that it had a healthy crowd, but maybe that was just because of the holiday weekend. Despite the insta crowd, I give this place 5 stars :)
  • Great winery and vineyard for wine tasting and spending an enjoyable part of your day. Excellent wines for sampling, or enjoying a few glasses while taking in the beautiful scenery. There are many picnic tables available at the winery for bringing in your own picnic foods to make the wine tasting even more enjoyable. Dog friendly, so you don’t need to worry about the pup staying home alone. Knowledgeable staff to serve and explain the wine offerings. If you ask nicely, they will gladly let you “revisit” your wine samples. I drove up from Ventura and was glad I did! As an added perk, check in at the winery on Yelp and get two wine tastings for the price of one!
