Here is a rough list of how to hit Santa Barbara County Wine Country. Bottoms up!

Santa Ynez / Santa Barbara



Stops 1 & 2. Santa Rita Hills: beautiful countryside views of some of the best Pinot grapes in Cali.



Stop 1 – Far out, but the true first stop of the movie.

Stop 3: Driving to the other side of “the Triangle” you can go through Solvang and get a good look around. Super Scandanavian. Wouldn’t bother tasting, Los Olivos in the best.



Stop 4: Los Olivos. Tasting Row! Lots here!

Stop 5. But, you have to get out and see more country before you leave!!! These are just down the way from downtown Los Olivos.
