Surrounded by some of finest vineyards in the world—especially known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah varietals—19 tasting rooms in downtown Solvang offer some delicious local sparkling wine options, too! Just in time to ring in the 2015 New Year—stroll around and take some tastes. Here are just a few ideas: at the Wandering Dog Wine Bar, you can try out the “Bubbles Flight” of 3 ounces each of three sparklers or perhaps glass of the very festive local Flying Goat Cellars “Goat Bubbles” from the Santa Maria Valley.
At Lucas & Lewellen Tasting Room, experience their just released 2012 Sparkling Wine, made in the Méthode Traditionelle, (fermented in the bottle with hand riddling and disgorging)—it contains 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir grapes from the L&L Los Alamos Vineyards. Be sure to check out all the local vintages to bring some cheer to your new year! http://www.solvangusa.com/explore-solvang/what-to-do/wine-country/wineries-and-tasting-rooms/
