About This Winery
Solvang - Don't miss this delightful stop in Solvang where you can taste some of the area's best wines in one of the friendliest places in town.
Mr. Lucas and Mr. Lewellen own close to 400 acres of grapes and produce a dizzying array of French and Italian-style wines. Walking the streets of the charming European-style village of Solvang, you will pass candy and ice cream stores, specialty gift stores, restaurants, and tourist shops, and in the mix you will find a number of storefront tasting rooms.
Lucas & Lewellen offers a lively tasting bar along with an extensive gift shop crammed with wine and gift items. The mood is relaxed, with bar stools and even a table for kids to entertain themselves while parents learn about the wines. Outside is a small covered porch with flowers and a grape arbor overhead, plus a wine barrel fashioned into a bubbling fountain.
The winery is located in Buellton, with two tasting rooms in the Copenhagen-style tourist town of Solvang. Under the Lucas & Lewellen name, fine Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Port are produced. Under the Madolina label a number of notable Italian varietal wines are made. The vineyards are located in Los Alamos, Santa Maria, and Santa Ynez Valley, growing dozens of grape varieties. A number of notable Italian-style varietals are offered under the new Toccata Label.↑ Less
