A visit to Brave & Maiden sticks with you. Between our sweeping vineyard views, our stunning architecture, and the personal wine experience we’ve always provided, we are proud to continue our renowned guest experiences despite the adjustments we’ve all had to make to life during COVID-19. Join us here at the estate to personally discover our limited production wines right on the property on which they were sustainably grown and meticulously crafted.
At this time, we are able to offer our standard hour-long guided tasting, by appointment, at $30 per guest. Walk-ins may be accommodated in rare cases as space allows, but appointments generally take up most of our seatings, so we encourage you to book well in advance.
How to Book
Appointments are taken from 10:00 am to 3:30pm.
Brave & Maiden Estate is located just off Highway 246 between Santa Ynez and Solvang, just a few minutes south of Los Olivos.
We may not be able to accommodate parties which are more than 15 minutes late to their scheduled appointment. Reservations must be cancelled with 48 hour advanced notice. If a reservation does not show, the credit card used to hold the reservation will be charged in full.
CHILDREN & DOGS
We are a family and dog friendly winery. However, due to the intimacy and nature of our tasting experience, we please ask that children are supervised at all times. Dogs are welcome as long as they are leashed and remain outdoors.
WHAT TO EXPECT
With COVID-19 an ongoing fact of life, we have implemented several protocols to keep our guests and staff as safe as possible. We’re all in this together, so we appreciate every guest’s commitment to these expectations:
All seatings will be outdoors, in our courtyard overlooking our beautiful vineyard. So please dress for the weather and be prepared with sun protection if necessary.
Reservations will be limited to 60 minutes to allow sufficient time for sanitation between guests.
Groups will be limited to no more than six guests.
Masks will be required upon entry, as well as in common areas. Your mask may be removed once you are seated.
If you have any symptoms of Covid-19, or have had exposure to someone with symptoms, notify our tasting room prior to arrival. We will happily reschedule your appointment.
These practices will undoubtedly evolve with time. Thank you for your understanding as we navigate the new rules and expectations in order to stay in compliance and be able to continue to host guests.
