About This Winery
Solvang - One of the oldest vineyards on the Central Coast. Enjoy the award winning wines at the cozy tasting room in downtown Solvang. Great gift shop.
Lions Peak produces an array of traditional Bordeaux, Rhone, and Italian varietal wines and blends. Their vineyard and winery is in northern San Luis Obispo County near the small Mission town of San Miguel. The vineyard was originally planted in 1971 at an elevation of 1,200 feet. The style of winemaking is to create full-bodied, balanced low-tannin wines. The winery also produces excellent Zinfandel, Port and Late-Harvest Dessert wines.
One hundred miles south of their winery is their lovely tasting room in the European-style resort town of Solvang. Mixed among the quaint shops and restaurants is the thatched-roof tasting room, gift shop and art gallery of Lions Peak. The bright, colorful shop is packed with elegant gift items including pottery, wine accessories, ethnic wood carvings, artisan painted glassware, brightly colored artwork and other handicrafts.
The long wine bar has a dozen stools and offers their current wine releases and a selection of their older “Library Wines” for tasting. The staff is engaging and knowledgeable about their wines. The sit down tasting is comfortable and the wines are an excellent value. See Recent Newsletter or the Lions Roar Blog.
