Los Olivos

If you’re looking for an easy afternoon of wine tasting, gift shopping and artisanal eats, Los Olivos has got you covered. This tiny town off Highway 154 is easily accessible by car and offers both still and sparkling wine-tasting rooms, mouth-watering confections and seasonal pairing menus.

Spend the day in the quaint town’s center or book a tour for a decadent day of wine and beer tasting. Wander through the myriad tasting rooms within a few blocks that make up downtown Los Olivos, where boutique wineries and craft breweries await.

Dine at a number of delectable artisan restaurants or lunch spots, or take a chapter from the locals’ book and enjoy a rustic barbecue lunch at R-Country Market — Santa Maria tri-tip sandwiches are the order of the day every Saturday and Sunday. If fine dining and wine pairing are more your speed, enjoy a succulent dinner at Los Olivos Café & Wine Merchant, which Wine Spectator magazine named the “Best Restaurant for Wine.”
