Santa Maria Valley

Sometimes it’s the unbeaten path that leads to the best discoveries. Such is the case in the Santa Maria Valley, where fine wine, world-famous barbecue and open roads make for a uniquely memorable wine tasting experience. Here, in northern Santa Barbara County on California’s Central Coast, you will savor artisan wines at more than a dozen tasting rooms set amid rolling hills and picturesque vineyards. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah are just some of the wines that excel in the valley’s temperate coastal climate, which is shaped by a rare “transverse” geography that runs west to east and encourages the influx of cool marine breezes. Visit the Santa Maria Valley and taste why our wines rank among the finest in the world.
