For the first day of Memorial Day weekend we went to do some wine tasting up in beautiful Santa Barbara County. It's about 1 1/2 hours North of Los Angeles by car via the PCH or US 101. The grapes are grown in what is know as the Santa Ynez Valley, which provides excellent conditions due to the mountains running East to West and carrying the Pacific moisture in. Several quaint towns have popped up around the wineries to accomodate tourism. This is also the area displayed in the film "Sideways."

Our first stop of the day was at Bridlewood Winery.



















Next, Gainey Winery... not as good as Bridlewood in my opinion.













Lastly we went to Presidio Winery, in the wonderful town of Solvang. Solvang was modeled after a Danish small town.































The End!
