Taste of the Santa Ynez Valley

November 3 - 6, 2022

As the West’s most respected travel and lifestyle authority, Sunset Magazine is partnering with another western icon – Visit the Santa Ynez Valley – to present Taste of the Santa Ynez Valley. The four-day, six town celebration of food, wine, and more takes place November 3rd through the 6th across the towns of Solvang, Santa Ynez, Los Alamos, Los Olivos, Ballard, and Buellton. Among the many highlights of Taste of the Santa Ynez Valley include curated wine tastings, chef-driven long table dinners, lunches and activities, and events hosted by Sunset editors, all celebrating the many special offerings of this powerhouse California wine country destination.

Visit the Santa Ynez Valley celebrated the completion of its inaugural four-day food, wine and experiential event, “Taste of the Santa Ynez Valley: The First Course in Food, Wine, and Experiences”. Held Thursday through Sunday, October 17-20, 2019, the signature event took place in the six Santa Ynez Valley wine country towns of Los Alamos, Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Solvang, Ballard and Buellton, with immersive experiences meant to serve as an introductory course to the edible and imbibe-able bounty of the burgeoning food, wine and beer destination.

Visitors came from far and wide to sip, savor, and learn a little more about what makes this community so special. Join us again in  2022 for another “taste” of the Santa Ynez Valley.
