About This Winery
This label of the Lucas & Lewellen partnership makes their Italian-style wines including Pinot Grigio, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Moscato, Sangiovese, Toccata, Pinot Nero, Dolcetto, Malvasia Bianca, as well as the Super-Tuscan blends of Bordeaux and Italian varietals. The grapes are mostly estate-grown from the Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria, and Los Alamos.
Just up the street from Lucas & Lewelling – their sister winery – in the quaint town of Solvang, the warm and intimate European ambiance of the Mandolina Tasting Room is a refuge. The room has an extensive gift shop featuring a variety of gourmet foods, paintings, lovely Italian gifts, pottery and unique wine-related items displayed on heavy wooden tables. The wood-beamed ceiling creates a cozy space in which to taste their excellent wines. The wine bar has comfortable chairs, and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable.
