The Stolpman Tasting Room used to be located in Solvang but are now in the beautiful downtown of Los Olivos. The tasting room itself is cool, a quaint little front yard area with a few vines planted and an outdoor seating/ tasting area. We didn’t video the inside, it was relatively busy, but it’s one that would be classified as warm, quaint, and charming…definitely worth checking out.
Before we get into the wines we will say that the tasting fee was more than what we were used to at $15…but we took one for the team and went for it!
The wines were nice…the stand-outs for us were the 2009 L’Avion which is a 100% Roussanne which had honey and popcorn notes. Also, the 2009 La Cuadrilla (Syrah & Grenache co-fermented with a little viognier) was nice but our verbage may throw you…Hoot said Vetrinary’s office and Annie said bacon and bacon fat (weird but it was nice). The 2007 Estate Sangiovese was really good too…wood, barn, and pepper!
Stop in and say “Hi”, and tell them you-know-who sent you! Cheers!
