I personally did the research for you and spent days sampling my way through the region. So, let’s dive into the pour-by-pour on the best wineries in Solvang you won’t want to miss.

If you’re a Pinot Noir lover, Alma Rosa’s downtown wine tasting room should be your first stop. Richard Sanford was the first to plant Pinot Noir in the Santa Rita Hills.

Alma Rosa Winery

Ten minutes up the road from downtown Solvang, this Ballard Canyon winery specializes in estate-grown Syrah. You’ll also find Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from their Santa Catalina Island vineyard.

Rusack Vineyards

Located five minutes from downtown, this one-time ranch and guest house is now the home of Rhône varietals like Grenache, Syrah, and Viognier.

Rideau Vineyard

For farm-to-table treats and fantastic wines, head next door to Buttonwood Farm Winery. Betty Williams founded this working farm in the ’60s.
