About This Winery
This former race-horse rehabilitation center has been transformed into a dramatic resort-like winery operation. A well-tended forest of trees greets you as you drive up to the very impressive Spanish-style building, complete with a traditional mission-style bell tower, tile roofs and broad verandas. Beyond the circular drive, bubbling fountain and olive trees, the shade of the veranda leads to the large wooden doors of the tasting room.
Tile floors, a cozy fireplace and the large tasting bar invite visitors to taste and stay awhile. An extensive selection of clothing, wine accessories and packaged gourmet foods is also available. Outside, flagstone patios with magnificent views of the property are situated for tasting, relaxing or picnicking. Horse-drawn carriage rides ($10 – 11am to 4pm) wind through the manicured property, which sports a full-sized race track, shimmering pond, hillside vineyards and horse stables.
The winery produces five different Syrah wines and Rhone blends, as well as Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Grenache, Chardonnay, and Viognier. In addition, Bridlewood makes other small-production lots for limited release, including a Syrah Port.↑ Less
