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.
