Our picturesque 105-acre estate rests on a high bench of ancient seabed, facing Pacific breezes that meander through the Santa Ynez Mountains to the south and the Purisima Hills and San Raphael Mountains to the north. the mountains run east-west, allowing the fog to roll in from the Pacific Ocean, which slows the ripening process and paves the way for a long growing season. With more time to mature and develop, the grapes develop a crisp balance between acid and sugar.
A destination all its own, Bridlewood blends a modern, artisan winery with rustic, Spanish-styled architecture reminiscent of California's historic missions. Behind the mission-style facade lies an intimate winery - an artist's workshop - where our team of winemakers crafts Bridlewood's artisan wines. They spend much of their time in the barrel room, tasting different vineyard lots and blending them together to create exquisitely balanced wines that embody the unique terroir of the Central Coast. No visit to Bridlewood is complete without a stop at our tasting room. We've created an intimate experience with plenty of room to relax. Gather at one of our hand-crafted barrel tables or savor a glass of wine by the fountain in our sunny courtyard. On weekends, you can even take your glass of wine on a horse-drawn carriage ride around our estate.
