My husband and I stopped in and was so glad we did. We enjoyed tasting samples of 5 wines from various locations around the world. Wine was delicious, and the hostess was a doll!

Located right off of main street in downtown Solvang, this dog friendly wine tasting bar had a great selection of local wines and a delicious cheese plate. The bartender was very knowledgable and friendly. Great experience!
