Event Date: 
Friday, March 29, 2019 - 12:00pm to Sunday, March 31, 2019 - 5:00pm

A FOG Favorite! Come enjoy a relaxing visit to the Santa Ynez 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?

We will stay at the Radisson Hotel Santa Maria, on the field at KSMX.  Book your hotel at a discounted rate of $100 a night by calling (805) 928-8000 or at and use the promo code FLYOUT.

Friday night - Vans leave the hotel at 5 pm for live music and munchies at the Friday Night Wine Down at Costa de Oro winery, followed by group dinner at Cool Hand Luke’s, famous for their BBQ.

Saturday we meet as a group in the lobby at 10:30am, load into rental vans, and head out for a great day of wine tasting. Lunch will be waiting for us at the first stop.

1. 11a-1p; Riverbench Winery Tasting and lunch: Established in 1973, Riverbench Vineyard has built a reputation for outstanding Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and sparkling wines.

2. 130-245p Roblar Winery and VineyardsNestled in an oak tree-studded 40-acre vineyard located in the heart of Santa Barbara County, Roblar Winery and Vineyards reflects the spirit of Santa Ynez Valley- rustic, authentic, and bold. 

3. Tantara Winery located in the heart of Santa Maria.  We will visit 2 days after their bottling for a unique insight to wine making and production. Tantar's wine was rated by National Geographic as number 5 of the 10 best wines in the world

Dinner will be decided afterwards depending on the group but after the wonderful afternoon of wine tasting should be a memorable occasion. (The cost of dinner is not included in the price)

Sunday there are no group plans, just check out of the hotel and depart at your leisure.
