Santa Barbara Region Wine Trails

Santa Maria Valley Wine Trail

Santa Maria Valley is home to 34 wineries and tasting rooms. Here, our winemakers aren’t just names on a label – they’re authentic, approachable and ready to pour you a glass. While you’re here, spend an afternoon cruising the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail, where you’ll find 14 different wineries with a diverse selection of world-class wines and a backdrop of stunning scenery, vineyards and rolling hills.

Los Olivos Wine Trail

The Los Olivos Wine Trail covers the town of Los Olivos and the valleys right around town, from the Los Olivos AVA grape growing region. This charming small town has a 6-block, walkable downtown, and features small producers from all over Santa Ynez Valley, as well as larger wineries and unique wine labels, plus local craft beer and cider. There are plenty of styles and varieties for everyone, even a Sparkling Wine Trail.

Lompoc Valley Wine Trail

Discover nearly 30 wineries on the Lompoc Wine Trail, from boutique tasting rooms in the Wine Ghetto to beautiful estate vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills. The rare combination of climatic conditions, east-west hill orientation, calcium-rich soil, along with winemaker ingenuity, blend together for truly unique wines. Experience a flavorful concentration of fruit that produces extraordinary Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah and other cool climate wines.

Industrial Way in Buellton

Buellton sits at the entrance to the Sta. Rita Hills wine trail, made famous in the movie, Sideways. With its unique topography and climate, this region has been producing award winning Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for many years.  The trail leads through stunning scenery, but you’ll also find these fabulous wines dotted around Buellton and along Industrial Way, in an eclectic, unique wine-tasting experience.

Solvang Wine Walk

Solvang is located in the center of Santa Barbara County’s acclaimed wine region—known especially for its outstanding Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Syrah, plus many others from more than 125 wineries. In downtown Solvang, tempt your palate at nearly 20 wine-tasting rooms and wine bars, all within easy walking distance.

Santa Barbara Urban Wine Trail

Santa Barbara is home to California’s original Urban Wine Trail, a collection of more than two dozen wineries and tasting rooms located in downtown Santa Barbara and surrounding South Coast communities. Clustered in neighborhoods as diverse as the industrial chic Funk Zone, elegant Presidio Neighborhood and seaside Summerland, the eclectic tasting rooms and wine bars pour premium Santa Barbara County wines with a relaxed, friendly vibe.

Santa Barbara Bubble Trail

With a nickname like the “American Riviera®,” it’s no surprise that Santa Barbara is a place that pairs well with a glass of something sparkling in hand. Ten downtown tasting rooms on the Santa Barbara Bubble Trail offer sips of regionally produced effervescent vintages. The Bubble Trail also includes six specialty wine bars that pour sparklers by the glass from both local and international origins.
