Santa Maria Wine Tasting

April 14, 2023 - April 16, 2023

A FOG Favorite! Come enjoy a relaxing visit to the Santa Maria Wine Country. We love this trip for lots of reasons – the flight is beautiful no matter which route you choose, we enjoy great wines and great food together, and where else can you request to taxi your airplane directly to the hotel?

On Friday night, celebrate your arrival with live music and munchies at the Friday Night Wine Down at Costa de Oro winery, followed by a group dinner at Cool Hand Luke’s, famous for their BBQ.

Saturday morning, we meet as a group in the lobby, board our private chartered bus, and head out for a great day of wine tasting. Lunch will be waiting for us at one of the wineries.

On Sunday, the FOG coordinator has arranged a visit to California’s newest airport, New Cuyama! This airport reopened in the last few months, and is located close to the Cuyama Buckhorn, a great lunch spot. Grab a bite to eat with the group before bidding goodbye to Central California.

If you have any questions, contact us at (650) 946-1700 or flyoutgroup@sancarlosflight.com.
