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.
