FlyOutGroup Santa Ynez Valley Wine Tasting
Fri Mar 27 - Sun Mar 29$200
It’s that time of year when FlyOutGroup travels to Santa Maria for some delicious wine tasting. Only this year, we will explore the Santa Ynez Valley.
Departing on Friday, March 27th, fly to Santa Maria Airport and taxi up to the Radisson Hotel on the ramp for you check in.
We have reserved a block of rooms for $109 per evening. Call the Radisson and mention FlyOutGroup (FOG) to make your reservation [(805) 928-8000]+
That evening we will travel by van, to a local industrial area that houses a secret winery warehouse of Tantara Wines for some incredible tasting before having dinner at Trattoria Uliveto for traditional Italian cuisine paired with a lengthy wine list in a cottage setting.
Saturday the next day we will meet outside the hotel at 1030 am sharp and travel south to the Santa Ynez Valley for wine tasting at 3 wineries (with lunch at the first).
The first stop will be Sunstone Vineyards, Winery and Villa, an organic vineyard retreat. We will enjoy Sunstone wines and lunch among their Provençal French courtyards, stone barrel-aging caves or picnic grounds.
Then over to Rideau Vineyard. Established in 1997, Rideau has been family owned since day one. Since that first day, our focus has continuously been on handcrafting small-lot wines from grapes that are hand-harvested from our sustainably farmed estate vineyard—truly showcasing the land from which they come.
Now it’s time to go to Solvang and visit another winery before strolling this lovely Southern Californian town founded in 1911 by a group of Danes who traveled west to establish a Danish community far from the midwestern winters.
Finally we will return to Santa Maria for dinner at The Garden Mediterranean Restaurant & Cafe which features grilled meat platters & classic Mediterranean dishes in a traditional dining room.
Sunday is a free day for everyone to depart safely back home.
Don’t miss out as this trip will be filled with excellent wine, food and laughter.
Cost = $200 which includes van transportation, wine tasting and Saturday lunch. Dinners and hotel not included.
