Together, the towns of Buellton, Ballard, Solvang, Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Los Alamos, and the countryside in-between all combine to create the Santa Ynez Wine Country. This area is home to world-class wineries, as well as beautiful vineyards and cellars. Taste some of the finest wines in California, take a guided tour, or enjoy a picnic amongst the vines.
The Santa Barbara area is close to some of California's best wineries. You can plan your own tour or choose to book with a local tour company to explore everything the area offers. If you choose a tour company, we suggest Grapeline Wine Tours, a highly rated local company offering several your types that accommodate nearly any size group.
In addition to being home to dozens of wineries, Wine Country is also home to some of the area's most popular festivals and local events. At Coast Village Inn, we recommend you make plans to attend these festivals:
February: A Wine Fantasy in February
May: Bacon & Barrels
June: Los Olivos Jazz and Olive Festival
When it comes to wine country, you get what you put into it! From wineries and tasty restaurants to horseback riding and picnics, there are several activities sure to entertain and delight. You can always find something to do on the Santa Ynez Valley website.
