Santa Ynez Valley

Santa Ynez Valley Wine CountrySanta Ynez Valley is the perfect setting for a long weekend filled with natural beauty and, of course, extraordinary wines. Plan a day, a weekend, an entire vacation and take this opportunity to become more familiar with some of your favorite local wineries as you speak with vintners and winemakers.

Enjoy Wine Country hospitality with a stay in a local inn, and be sure to check out the talents of our local chefs who prepare regional cuisine, with locally raised ingredients.

There is a wide range of hotels, motels, inns and bed and breakfasts - mainly in Buellton and Solvang, but there are also places to stay in Los Olivos and Santa Ynez.

Santa Ynez Valley also boasts a full range of things to do in addition to wine tasting.  Visit the Carriage museum in Santa Ynez, take a nature hike at Lake Cachuma, ride a glider over the entire valley, snack on an abelskiver as you stroll Solvang's shops, browse the art galleries in Los Olivos or simply enjoy the view at Buellton's River Park.  All that, and more - and great wine!

For a full listing of places to stay, dine and visit, please visit the Solvang Visitors Bureau, the Buellton Visitors Bureau, the Santa Ynez Valley Visitors Association and the Santa Ynez Vacation Rentals websites.
