Solvang - it's all about vineyards, wine tasting and wineries

Hopping around the wine country, the rich Santa Ynez valley boasts of some of the finest premium wines in the world. Our first visit was to the Gainey vineyard - they even have a demonstration vineyard just outside the tasting room. We loved their tasting rooms and the picturesque view of the mountains. Luckily, the grapes were perfectly ripe for us to pluck them right off the vineyards

The Foxen Canyon road has some of the best wineries in Solvang. Drive at a leisurely pace and you will definitely enjoy it. The Firestone vineyard was our next destination - loved their red Cabernet Sauvignon
