Santa Ynez Valley Wineries Map

The Santa Ynez Valley is a cool climate AVA within Santa Barbara County that extends from Lompoc to Lake Cachuma. The AVA is bordered on the north by the Purisima Hills and San Raphael Mountains and to the south by the Santa Rosa Hills. These mountains and their associated ridges and valleys funnel cool Pacific breezes through the valley and create both cool and warm climate regions. The Santa Ynez Valley is one of California’s most popular wine tasting destinations.
