Welcome to the Santa Ynez Valley!

We're about 130 miles north of Los Angeles via Highway 101, or a 40 minute drive from Santa Barbara. Here's an idyllic combination of ranching tradition and blossoming Wine Country - a perfect weekend get-away for Southern Californians.   [more]

Support Our Troops - Pack a Care Box

Every year, a small band of women gather in Santa Ynez Valley to prepare packing boxes for most-needed items for our troops. This is a simple way you can help - by chipping in a few hours to help pack - or donate a few needed items.

The Women of the Santa Ynez Valley Support The Troops Asociation will be packing boxes to be sent to the men and women that serve us in remote locations of Iraq and Afghanistan. The items most requested are for personal hygiene, snacks that can be carried and eaten while on the move, socks, moisturizers, sports magazines and always, international calling cards.

Anyone who would like to make a small donation of your time on packing day are welcome. The group meets on the fourth Wednesday of every month in the church hall at Bethania Lutheran Church on Atterdag in Solvang.

For more information on the Santa Ynez Valley Support the Troops Association, visit the website at:, or call Pat Sullivan at 805-688-8404. This is a great way to make a big difference with little effort!
