Bridlewood On the Mind

       On what used to be a renowned horse racing track many years ago, now stands one of the Santa Ynez Valley's true wine gems. Bridlewood Winery, which is just 30mins north of Santa Barbara, sits on approximately 105 acres complete with a spanish-style estate tasting room, barrel room, and a breathtaking veranda overlooking the beautiful vineyards. Bridlewood currently offers two tasting flights,(a classic and reserve tasting), which include both red and white wine varietals. There are also rumors of new wine tour additions to Bridlewood such as a ATV tour and a horse and carriage tour. To me, this would be an ideal activity to enjoy with visiting friends and family this holiday season!
       This vino vaquera personally recommends there luscious pinot noir which is perfect to sip in the bubble bath after a long Wednesday workday.
