World-class wineries and vineyards, sprawling equestrian ranches and six small, delightful rural towns – Ballard, Buellton, Los Alamos, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez and Solvang — comprise the Santa Ynez Valley. It is close to the perfect combination of rural-agricultural heritage combined with a sophisticated “wine country” ambiance. Just a scenic half-hour drive over the Coastal Range from Santa Barbara, the valley was initially renowned for its thoroughbred horse ranches, although most recently it has become revered for its exceptional wines. Its eclectic population – a diverse mix of cowboys, ranchers, winemakers, and city slickers — is also a reason for its popularity. The Santa Ynez Valley is a hidden gem.
