This section includes details about everything from dogs on leashes to picnic grounds, allowed food/beverages, rules/requirements with children, public areas vs private, policies, etc… pretty much everything visitors can expect when they are here at the Sunstone Estate. Our policies will change from time to time, as needed to make for the best possible customer experience!
Can I bring my dog?
Sure, but for the safety and respect for other customers and our employees, we require all dogs to remain outdoors and on a leash with the owner at all times while visiting the Sunstone estate. Please be empathetic to other customers, who may not appreciate having dogs present during their wine tasting experience. Should there be anyone uncomfortable about your dog in any way, we reserve the right to request that your dog be removed from the customer experience. Please pick up after your dog, and never leave your pets in a hot car! No other animals are allowed, especially monkeys.
Is Sunstone Family Friendly?
Absolutely, we are a family winery! But please remember, wine tasting is an adult activity. Please be empathetic to our adult customers who may not appreciate having kids present during their wine tasting experience. For your child’s safety, a parent is required to stay physically present with their child(ren) at all times while visiting the Sunstone estate. Please remind your children to remain quiet, as many of our customers want to visit Sunstone’s scenic tranquility in peace to get away from their noisy lives. Should there be anyone uncomfortable about your children in any way, we reserve the right to request that the parents escort their children away from our customer’s “experience”. And, please pick up after your kids and do NOT let them climb trees or buildings or hillsides. That goes for adult children too!
Have a Picnic at Sunstone!
Come relax on our expansive lawn which has 10 picnic tables for you to enjoy. Bring your food, dogs and kids. Picnic tables are available at no charge on a first come, first served basis, but can also be reserved for three-hour periods for $25 (complimentary for wine club members). Reserve a picnic table today.
The picturesque Santa Ynez Valley encompasses six communities clustered closely together like wine grapes. From the charming, tiny gem of rural Ballard, the bustling gateway city of Buellton, the vintage western town of Los Alamos, the arts-influenced wine-infused town of Los Olivos and the turn-of-the-20th-century township of Santa Ynez, to the northern European atmosphere of the city of Solvang founded by Danish-Americans in 1911, it’s relaxing and refreshing to meander and experience them all. Just two hours up the coast from Los Angeles, it feels like a world away with endless possibilities.
Experience the beauty and charm of The Santa Ynez Valley with an overnight stay in one of our 33 member hotels in the communities of Solvang, Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Los Alamos, Buellton and Ballard.
