It should come as no surprise that the Danish village of Solvang, California also plays host to many award-winning tasting rooms! From Italian varietals to the Rhone Valley to French Bordeaux, from tasting rooms to wine bars and wineries, Solvang is the perfect location to sample California’s Santa Barbara County wines that are famous for putting the region on the wine map.
The Solvang 3rd Wednesday Wine & Beer Walk costs just $20 per person, which includes a ticket to sample two wines at five participating wine – and/or beer – tasting rooms, a specialty logo glass, and a map to help you navigate your way through all of the fun! The Wine & Beer Walk is every 3rd Wednesday, from 3:00 PM – 7:00 PM. (Must be 21 and over to purchase Wine & Beer Walk tickets.)
Solvang 3rd Wednesday Wine & Beer Walk tickets may be purchased in advance on-line, at solvang-wine-walk.eventbrite.com. On each Solvang 3rd Wednesday, Wine & Beer Walk participants may pick up their Wine & Beer Walk logo glass, tasting vouchers and map, at Wandering Dog Wine Bar (1539-C Mission Drive) and the Olive House (1661 Mission Drive).
Solvang 3rd Wednesday Wine & Beer Walk tickets do not expire: Guests who fall short of five tasting spots during one monthly 3rd Wednesday, may save their partially-used tickets and 3rd Wednesday Wine & Beer Walk glass, for use on a future Solvang 3rd Wednesday.
And…once you have a Solvang 3rd Wednesday Wine & Beer Walk glass, pay only $15 per person for a pack of 5 more tasting tickets – that’s 10 more tastes – for any 3rd Wednesday Wine & Beer Walk!
The streets of Solvang are peppered with wine tasting rooms that all have a special “something” to add to the atmosphere of the village. From Cali Love Wine’s rock music theme to Toccata’s Italian ambience, the Solvang 3rd Wednesday Wine Walk allows you to do more than just wine tasting — it’s a whole experience! Park your car, stroll through town and you will find Barbera, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gewurtztraminer, Grenache, local sparkling wines, Malvasia Bianca, Marsanne, Merlot, Nebbiolo, Petite Verdot, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, Port, Rose, Rousanne, Sangiovese, Semillon, Syrah, Tempranillo, unique blends, Viognier, and even Champagne, Moscato and dessert wines.
