Whether you're a complete beginner or someone who really likes to hear new opinions about wine and wine tasting, I can't recommend their wine tasting classes and tour enough. Shay was an excellent guide who pointed out all kinds of lesser known facts about horticulture, and patiently answered every question we had to throw at him.

Everyone we met who went there as well loved it, although we all seemed to have different favorites from the wine tasting. The main tasting building is also part historical monument, and you can see the brick from the original Adobe, which is the oldest standing one in California.

Rideau Vineyard is my favorite winery in Solvang.

Great atmosphere.

The staff were wonderful.

Our tour guide was super energetic and fun. I love that they let you wander off on your own and even taste all of the different types of grapes.

Their wines are excellent. I ended up taking a bottle of red home.

You will spend a few bucks more here but it's worth it.

Beautiful grounds. The wine tour was fun and educational. The staff is very laid back and friendly. The wines were exceptional. The tempranillo was my favorite red wine. The tour guide was friendly and thorough.

This is a small boutique winery just off the main street in Solvang. It was started by Iris Rideau in 1997. She has restored and made as the main house, a beautiful adobe -- now a California Landmark as the oldest adobe still standing. The winery is set on acres of beautiful tree speckled land, and the vineyards are right around the house, which now serves as a tasting room/gathering place. Iris is originally from New Orleans, so the decor, hospitality, and theme parties all reflect a bit of Cajun Southern hospitality. There is food/non-alcoholic drinks available at the tasting room, and the flatbread pizzas are delicious! Also both indoor seating to rest, eat or visit, or sit under the oaks outdoors at picnic tables. The staff (especially Reza and Seth) are very knowledgeable about wine, and all are very helpful, generous and friendly. Take the walking wine tour, and learn about the vineyards, grapes, the barrel room, the aging process and bottling. It's fascinating. Oh, and the wine!!! I like every single one of the wines I tasted there, which is unique. Of course, taste is subjective, but the Tempranillo, Karen's Cuvee, and Lagniappe reds are amazing! Both have rich full cherry/chocolate palates, without being heavy, smoky or spicy. Light tanins and smooth finish. Also, Iris won a blue ribbon for her Viognier white. Very light and crisp. There is a wine club membership available, which offers different levels of regular shipments, free tastings, member discounts for everything, and special invitations to events. A trip to Rideau is truly a rich and unforgettable experience! I highly recommend it.

Shay, Shay, Shay, that's all I need to say. But I will say more because he deserves it. One of the most well informed very knowledgable guides I've ever met. Shay is a HOOT!! His dry Irish humor keeps you laughing and well engaged. Just make sure to hold your glass by the stem, not the bowl...

We met Iris Rideau and her wonderful staff June 3, 2016. What a warm and welcoming group! We had a long conversation with Iris that felt like talking to an old friend. Nicki, who poured the wine, was a delightful young woman, obviously passionate about her job. We did not get the name of the male staffer, but he was terrific as well. And the wine!! The mourvedre' was our favorite. We bought bottles for friends we were meeting that weekend. Definitely a must stop - we went there at the suggestion of friends. It was one of our destinations and so worth it! At the end they hug you and say "welcome to the family."

I am normally quite positive on my reviews but was really disappointed with our visit. Wines were mediocre, staff were not very knowledgeable, tasting room wasn't much to see.

We had been meaning to come here for quite awhile since we frequently wine taste in the Santa Ynez area and finally made it in. We got in relatively late on a Thursday and had great personal service from Nicki. She was very friendly and was able to speak well to each wine and the grounds. It is unusual to find a winery like this that not only has beautiful grounds but great wines across the board. Every wine we tried was very good so we were surprised. We ended up buying some wines and joining the Cellar Club so we can enjoy these wines even more!

I found their menu distasteful and hard to read. When I asked to speak to their Director of Menus I was rudely ignored. I was not impressed and will never be going back. I also would not recommend this winery to anyone that has any elegance, taste, or class. One star.

Amazing experience with the wine tour, Reza was an excellent tour guide, me and my husband enjoyed a lot, I definitely recommend this winery for a tour because it will be worth it, if you really like wine and learning about wine.

incredible Santa Ynez winery with a young, talented wine maker from a fabled CA wine family - the wines are truly lucious and a great addition to any cellar

Very limited staff for pouring but good atmosphere. Most likely best to visit when they have events on the weekends. At twenty years old I'd consider them a fledgling winery, still might have to work out the kinks with a few of their wines. This place is dog friendly so feel free to bring Fido.

Very friendly staff. Free tours available with a tasting certain times of the day. Nice selection of wines. Built around a historic house.

So nice because it’s low key and beautiful to visit and relax. The staff is so nice Megan was awesome to visit with. Victoria the cat is so cute! Love the “Sierra Madre” 2015 Chardonnay and the “Camp 4” Sangiovese. Steve gives tours at 12:30, 2 and 3pm on the weekends for free with tastings. Signature flight is $20 and Adobe flight is $15

Go here, bring a picnic, buy a special bottle and sit outside to eat in one of their Adirondack chairs. Then let the breeze allow you to just BE along with the grapes and grass.

Amanda M

Large estate with lots of land and gardens to explore. This was one of the busiest vineyards we visited, so we were lucky to have found seating at one of the main bars although we had to wait a bit in between pours. Our server was entertaining and knowledgeable, and did his best to keep up with pourings for everyone. Tasting menu was one of the most dynamic ones we tried, lots of different varietals and distilling processes to try. Would absolutely return but probably not during peak weekend hours, just because we were looking for something a little more laid back. The crowds are likely a reflection on the quality of this place though, so if you're nearby, I would definitely recommend.

Wine tasting at Rideau Vineyard checks all of the boxes when it comes to wine tasting in California - beautiful setting, laid back atmosphere, knowledgeable staff, and most importantly good wine. While I am not a wine connoisseur, I enjoyed the Adobe tasting ($15/flight at time of writing) with a selection of three whites and three reds. The setting is quite beautiful with a well designed tasting room adjacent to a historic adobe home covered with flowers surrounded by grassy fields sprinkled with Adirondack chairs and picnic tables. The entire place is well curated that blends both a classy atmosphere you'd expect at a California vineyard with a down-to-earth relaxed Southern California vibe. The staff was very welcoming and did not rush us through the tasting.

I look forward to coming back, but this time with a picnic in hand. I could easily spend an entire lazy Sunday afternoon drinking wine at Rideau.

We have been members of Rideau for many years and the staff and facility is always very welcoming and friendly. They have delicious wine and food with an outside setting that is one of the nicest in the Valley. I would give them six stars if I could.

It was our first time going to a vineyard and we didn’t know how it works! We asked for some wine samples and the tour leader guy named “Reza” was like: “you cannot taste our wines for free. I will take money if you drink wine!” in a sarcastic mocking tone. He could simply explain the wine tasting tour or ask us if we want a tasting tour instead of insulting. He poured wine quickly and constantly asked “which one will you buy?”. He didn’t let us enjoy or think about the wines. We felt very bad and didn’t like his behavior.

Delicious wines coupled with super friendly staff (shout out to Steven for his incredibly knowledgeable tour) coupled with beautiful ambiance is a true recipe for success. Cheers Rideau!

Great wines! Love there 2015 Reserve Sarah.

We've been there a few times and became a Black Label member Sept. 2018. I believe in the whole Solvang Valley they have the best wines.

The food is great and the service is even better.
