Issues with Owner
Josh, Ventura
I was a member of their quarterly wine club. I called to follow up on 04/09/13 for an order I had been charged for on 01/23/13 and had not received. The girl was very nice, and helpful. She told me they had my shipment because my account was pick up status and she’d send it out. I think I went through this process for every shipment. I received my order and a day or so after, I was billed again. I figured this was a billing error, possibly for the next shipment. I called to inquire 04/15/13, the guy on the phone told me they wouldn’t bill for the next shipment until May, to me this confirmed a billing error on their end, for some reason it didn’t register to him. I also informed him of the shipment that had been held at their facility for quite some time that recently shipped so he could understand why there may be an error. I only got a few more words in before he began non-stop rambling and ranting saying they wouldn’t have held my order (which they had and was fine), and that I was accusing him of screwing up my account (which they did, regarding shipping status and billing, but was fine as long as it was resolved). I asked him to slow down since he would not stop rambling and was getting way too worked up over nothing. He appeared to be a disgruntled worker, when I was finally able to squeeze in a few words I asked who I was speaking with. He said his name is Mike, and that he is the owner. I tried to give him the bottom line details so I could finish this ridiculous phone conversation and he could resolve the details after he cooled off, but he ended his rambling by hanging up on me. I called back three times, no answer, the third time I left a voicemail with the details, also giving the go to cancel my membership, something he suggested during our conversation. A few hours later I received an e-mail confirming a reverse of the charge. I asked “Have you confirmed the charge below was your error”, he responded “Nope. It wasn’t our error at all but that’s besides the point now”...ok. I asked “then why the refund, and what was the charge for?” This once again led to a downward spiral of the same childish rambling, this time typed in an e-mail. So here’s the final quote by owner Michael Cobb “The Big Winner”, “You now have your refund and you can go grocery shopping or whatever else you desperately needed the money for.” This dude is not cool.

Going Downhill
murphede, Oxnard
We used to love this place but now it seems to be going downhill. We are no longer a fan of any of their whites but most of their reds were still pretty good. The prices seem to be going up each time we visit and the small tasting room has been getting overcrowded where the ladies behind the counter can't keep up. I was mostly unimpressed with the man who seemed to be the owner. He seemed very uninterested to speak with the patrons and when he did is was quite condescending and rude. We will not be back, there are plenty of other good wineries that appreciate our business.

Fabulous!
murphede, Fernley
We are members of Sort It Out Cellars and we go back every time we are back in the SB area. It is a hip and fun tasting room in Solvang that stays open later than everyone else on a regular basis. On Fridays and Saturdays they bring in live music, sell wine by the glass at half price and put out yummy goodies in the separate super comfy tasting room for the members as an added bonus! Our favorites are the Film Noir, Merlot and Oh My Gosh Grenache but we really love them all, especially the reds! The "Swingers" casino/pin-up girl theme draws you in while the art work by the owner on the bottles is so much fun, they make me love the wines even more! They are constantly adding new wines and we can't wait to see what the next designs are each time! This place is a MUST SEE if you are in the Solvang area! Also check out Paninio for some fantastic sandwiches and salads in the area, we eaten there each time we've come through Solvang!

Great Tasting Service
moeron4, Eureka
Last month when I went to Santa Barbara County specifically to do some wine tasting. Fun spot right in Buellton. My favorite wine was the Pinot Grigio, and I would recommend to others as well. The service I received here was excellent and I would definitely go back there again.
