In the heart of Solvang, an unassuming red brick building stands at the corner of Mission Drive and Atterdag Street. Though it may not show it from the outside, the tasting room at Presidio Winery houses a vineyard’s worth of innovative varietals ready for exploration. Beneath warm pendant lights, the winery’s resident oenophiles pour certified organic and biodynamic wines. The cool climate where the grapes flourish is particularly well-suited for pinot noir, chardonnay, and syrah varietals, and crops are harvested using sustainable farming techniques. Visitors can sip samples of varietals such as the dry Estate syrah rose, the dark and savory sangiovese, and Estate pinot noir, with aromas of cherry, violets, and oak.
