Discover Santa Ynez Valley Wineries

If you’re a wine lover, then you’ll be thrilled to learn that one activity people love most when staying here is visiting the best wineries in Santa Ynez Valley. In fact, many visitors tell us they love to plan their Santa Ynez vacations around exciting wine-tasting Best Santa Ynez Wineriesexperiences. Santa Ynez wine country offers visitors four distinct American Viticulture Areas (AVAs) and over 120 wineries which produce more than 1 million cases of sense-satisfying wine every year. Taste the area’s unique varietals including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier, and more.

Each season is unique in Santa Ynez — there’s always a special wine event, fun concert or cultural celebration to attend. In the summer many wineries host special outdoor events, barbecues and concerts, which many find to be the perfect setting for romantic destination weddings. Fall ushers in a celebration of the local harvest, and the introduction of the new offerings. Winter is reserved for more laid-back exploration and tasting, but then the year starts again with a spring festival, featuring four days of unique wine and culinary experiences.

The best way to experience Santa Ynez wine country is to plan your own wine-tasting getaway.  Consider a local wine tour company for a guided tour of Santa Ynez wine country, or download the Santa Ynez Valley Tour Map here and start exploring on your own. Our local vintners often team up to offer a tasting pass, which lets you sample creations at many of the best local wineries.  So, what are you waiting for? Make Santa Ynez Valley your destination for the perfect wine tasting vacation
