Debra Eagle, general manager of Alma Rosa Winery, a leading wine producer from Santa Barbara County’s Sta. Rita Hills, is excited to announce that the winery has opened a new tasting room in downtown Solvang.
“We are thrilled to welcome guests to our new space,” says Eagle. “Our new location features expansive outdoor seating, which is perfect for enjoying our year-round gorgeous weather while tasting our small production, vineyard-designate wines. The area around us is emerging as a new culinary and hospitality epicenter in the Santa Ynez Valley, with several other winery tasting rooms, distilleries, excellent restaurants, and boutique hotels opening within a few blocks of us, and we are excited to be a part of it.”
Located at 1623 Mission Drive, Ste M, the new Alma Rosa tasting room shares its courtyard with like-minded businesses including Cailloux Cheese Shop, other wineries, a gelateria, and a clothing boutique.
Alma Rosa’s tasting room is now open Sunday through Wednesday, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Thursday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tasting fees are $25 per person and include a selection of five wines, including Winemaker Samra Morris’ debut 2019 vintage of Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. Cheese plates from Cailloux Cheese Shop are available for purchase. Reservations are suggested, but walk-ins are welcome.

About Alma Rosa Winery
Alma Rosa Winery is dedicated to making Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines that express the terroir of its unique appellation, the Sta. Rita Hills. Alma Rosa’s wines are layered, vibrant and balanced, reflecting the cool climate impact of the Pacific Ocean breezes which funnel through the unique east-west transverse mountain range of the region. The winery was founded in 2005 by Richard Sanford, who was the first to plant Pinot Noir in the Sta. Rita Hills in 1971. Today, the winery is owned by Bob and Barb Zorich, who purchased the winery in 2014. Samra Morris is winemaker.
