Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If, like us, you are in the Solvang or Buellton area take the time to go to the other side of Route 101, drive 5 miles or so and visit the winery. The setting is beautiful, there is plenty of parking, the people here are great and very helpful.

I am normally a red wine drinker, but the white wines here are some of the best I have ever tasted!They are crisp, fruity, and perfectly balanced. The Pinot Noir is a little later than I am used to, but good. The Syrah was a very pleasant surprise which I highly recommend.

A visit here is definitely worth the extra little drive!

Recommend stopping here for sure if doing wine tasting in the area. They have charm and personality. The ladies pouring were super friendly, as were the cats - Thelma and Louise. The tasting room is inviting and has local art for sale as well. They are very educational when pouring your wine, letting you know the vineyards and what tastes one should be experiencing. Really enjoyed it, and bought some wine to have shipped back home. Which by the way came in less than 5 days for around $10. The scenery and seating outside is a great place to enjoy your wine or have a picnic. Don't miss Lafond. Ps. They also have a tasting room in the Santa Barbara Funk Zone which we did not visit.

My wife and I stopped by here on our way to Buellton and had a great time. Jeneanne was incredibly knowledgeable and poured us a number of fantastic wines. The pinots were great, especially the Martin Ray, but the syrah and chard were also delicious.

Great wines, fun time, and you get to keep the glass.

We spent the afternoon at this winery and felt that we were treated like royalty. The wines were very good especially the Pinot Noir Snta Rita Hills 2012. Relaxing and nice seating area. Wish there was a place outside.

To be honest I did not taste the wines a this location. It was Veterans weekend, and being a Vet I asked if they provided military discounts, the woman behind the counter gave me the once over and, literally, said "pfft, no." I had no problem paying for a tasting I just did not like the way she spoke to me.

The previous day we were in Los Olivos and EVERY WINERY we visited was providing free tastings to vets.

We weren't able to go to the winery but were able to visit the tasting room in down town Santa Barbara. They gave us a selection of wines to enjoy for $10 and that fee went towards any wine we purchased and we received our beautiful wine glasses.

Excellent value tasting at $10, especially as the glass is included. The Vineyard Pinot Noir and Syrah are both a high step above their Santa Rita Hills versions. Decent Chardonnay and Riesling round out the 6 selections. Sandra was a knowledgable pourer.
