Destination guide

Lovely wines and lost trails in Los Olivos

There's such a wealth of syrah and viognier, cabernet sauvignon and roussanne on offer in the cellars of Los Olivos that you'll instantly feel as if you've entered Santa Barbara's wine country proper here. For many tipple-tasting travelers, this small and charming center is the gateway to the famous Santa Ynez Valley – one of the great Californian grape growing regions. It's also got more than reds and whites, whether you're seeking the lost hiking trails of the Los Padres National Forest or quaint, rustic Los Olivos vacation rentals – think timber mountain cabins alongside luxurious hacienda ranches with pools.

Tantalizing tastings in Los Olivos

Wine tasting surely has to take center stage in this theater for the tipples of the Santa Ynez Valley. You won't even have to leave town for it – there are cellar doors everywhere. If you do decide to venture out, then you can hop on organized tours of the surrounding vineyards in a minibus, and sip your way through the California wine country while wondering at the sweeping mountain views. And if wine's not your thing? There are balloon rides across the Pacific coast on offer, hiking excursions to Los Padres, and charming little gift boutiques to shop through.


Spring to fall bliss in Los Olivos

Spring to fall is the time to visit the Santa Ynez Valley. Starting in April and May, folk flock here to hike the ridges and meadows and see the wildflowers in bloom. Then comes summer, between June and August, which is when the bulk of tasters and wine aficionados hit those Los Olivos vacation rentals. Many will stick around until the fall, because September starts with the grape harvest festivities, and has oodles of other wine-related festivals. If you're determined to stash the dollars for even more bottles of Syrah to take home, then winter's the best choice.

Natural features

Los Olivos is flanked by the Santa Ynez

Little Los Olivos and its hearty cellars sit nestled in a narrow fold of the California Traverse Ranges. Around it, the Santa Ynez Mountains rise with their chaparral-topped peaks, but not before leaving wide fields of undulating green hills that are simply perfect for cultivating grapes. To really break away from the vineyards, you can always go north-east and delve into the wild park of Los Padres National Forest. That's got the wildflower meadows of Figueroa Mountain, and Californian condors patrolling the San Rafael Wilderness.
