About Bridlewood Estate Winery

Discover the casual elegance of the Central Coast at our stunning 105-acre estate in the heart of Santa Barbara County. Built in a rustic, Spanish-style reminiscent of California’s historic missions, Bridlewood Estate Winery is a destination all its own.

Read More

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.

I do understand that we have to follow protocol but, if I go to a place like this and there is nobody in the faculty besides the employees, we should be able to stay longer 1 hour on a beautiful day was not enough. Disappointed. Sorry

Wonderful service, and I'm sure the ambiance would improve if we went a little later in the day, but we went at noon and there was no one there to talk to, we were in and out in 30 minutes. The grounds were also limited if you weren't a member. I got the impression this would be a great winery to be a member of, but as a regular guest I didn't feel they had much to offer. Wines were delicious!
