"WINE TIME TOWN" Top 5 Page for this destination Los Olivos by travelgourmet

Los Olivos Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 48 photos


So many winery tasting rooms in town, so many wineries around town, and so little time. Los Olivos is on the map due to wine. There is the artisans in town and a few restaurants, even a couple of hotels, but wine tasting is the reason most tourists are walking the town. Close by to Solvang in the Santa Ynez Valley, Los Olives has the wine country look with all the vineyards and a drive through the area reveals many small boutique wineries as well as more known vineyards. The day can be spent between visiting a few vineyards in the area and the many tasting rooms in town called the Los Olivos Promanade.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:One of the best wine tasting areas in Southern California.
  • Cons:Extremely busy on weekends.

      There are many fine whites. Light and fruity is Pinot Grigio. My favorite white is from France, Louis Jadot Poully Fuisse. Close in taste and not as expensive is Fume Blanc. Cheers! :-)

    It reads like all you need to do is walk and sup of the fine wine here. A real nice place to visit

    The winery looks delightful and the LAVENDER FIELDS look wonderful. Nice page Larry!
