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.

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.

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!

Gorgeous property! Wish we'd had more time to stay and picnic, and I love that they're okay with that. The history of the old racetrack and the grounds were inspiring. The building is gorgeous and the horse barn is a fun, unique place to taste. The record player and classic rock playing was a charming, delightful touch. And, great wines!

We ate lunch in Los Olivos with another couple then came to Bridlewood for a tasting. The weather was spectacular and we sat outside on the patio for several hours. It was one of the best afternoons we've spent in the 2 years we've lived. Everything about the landscaping, the ambience, the service, the experience was perfect. Our friends were so impressed they're going to join Bridlewood as well.

Our group was warmly greeted at the door of the tasting room, and we were given a nice overview of our seating options inside and outside. We chose an outside table with a scenic view so we could enjoy a picnic lunch with our wine tasting. Very enjoyable. Definitely one of the more scenic vineyards and tasting rooms we have experienced in the Valley.
