Santa Barbara Wine Trails

Let's Hit the Trail!

Got the urge to sip in the city? There's a trail for that. Feel like cruisin' along country roads? There's a trail for that, too. Or maybe you just want to amble through an Old West town tossing back a few libations and chattin' with the locals. Guess what? We've got a trail for that, too.

Santa Barbara County boasts four official appellations and so many different growing areas and tasting hubs that you can choose a wine tour to suit your mood on any given day. Tickle your palate with some world-class pinot noir in the Sta. Rita Hills. Head to downtown Santa Barbara and trek along the Urban Wine Trail. Follow Miles and Jack‘s merry adventures in Sideways, the 2004 Oscar®-winning film shot in Santa Barbara wine country. Or mix and match- let your palate and interests guide you on your adventure, with a little help from our maps. Happy trails!

New this fall, the Lompoc Wine Ghetto's collection of small-production wineries have expanded their tasting rooms to reach tour-worthy status. Click to view a Lompoc Wine Ghetto Map.
