THE LIONS PEAK TASTING ROOM. “WINE SALON”

A “salon” is a gathering of people for the purpose of good conversation and inspiration, and what better inducement to both great wine & a stunning tasting room interior? Since opening 2004, Lions Peak has welcomed guests to the Tasting Room in the picturesque downtown of Solvang. “Our focus is on having an environment in which our tasters have a tasting room and salon interior that shifts their tasting to a more private individual tasting.”

Lions Peak Tasting room has a Salon approach with comfortable lounge chairs and tables which provide a more initiate tasting where the emphasis is on Lions Peak’s Wines. With its eclectic design and old-world charm, it reflects Jennifer Soni-Arant’s design background, wide-ranging travel, and winemaking expertise. Stop in for a flight, a glass, or a bottle of our delicious award winning red or white wines and enjoy some inspiring conversations. Our focus at Lions Peak is about the wine education and the overall wine experience. As my mentor, Robert Lawrence Baler said to me, the wine should talk to you!” Jennifer states.

In their Library collection, tasters will find Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon dating back to 1994. Hidden treasures of a small boutique winery owned by Jennifer Soni Arant.
