Santa Ynez, CA -

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.

Traditionally a ranching community, the Valley has become a primary source of fine dining, shopping, and Southern California wine tasting - as well as a center for equine enthusiasts, artists and musicians. The Valley is also home to people who work in the neighboring cities of Santa Barbara and Santa Maria.

Within the Santa Ynez Valley are the townships of Ballard, Buellton, Los Alamos, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez, and Solvang - each having its own unique character. The Valley is noted for some of the best weather conditions in the USA, and has hosted the filming of several movies, such as Mayberry USA and Sideways.

Access to the Valley is provided by coastal Highway 101, which passes through Buellton at the intersection of Highway 246, as well as Highway 154 from Santa Barbara across the San Marcos Pass. Santa Ynez Valley is also served by the Santa Ynez Airport.
