If you can’t bring the people to you, you have to go to the people. At
least that’s the way the Rosenson family saw it. Since 2005, they have
owned Coquelicot Estate Vineyard just outside of Solvang. But knowing,
as Jonathan Rosenson understated it, that “land use in the valley is
pretty strict,” they opted to buy the Mirabelle Inn in Solvang as a
hospitality center of sorts for their winery rather than build something
on the estate itself.
