Description

Feast your senses at Sunstone Winery! Here, for $10, you can sample their organic wines. Their patio out front has wine cask tables with creme-colored umbrellas that complement the earthy tones of the view. You can see green-covered mountains and hay-tinted hills, and plenty of trees all around. Inside the decor is Spanishy. It's gorgeous! The dark, cold cellar is lit with golden lights. We didn't wine taste but we bought some grapeseed oil which turned out to be delicious on salads! Our toddler enjoyed walking around the shady patio outside by the fountain.
If you're hungry, head over to the Danish town of Solvang and try Paula's Pancakes, where you can eat on their sunny patio surrounded by overflowing flower boxes and half-timbered buildings. The food is good and it comes quickly!
More chic than Solvang is the tiny town of Los Olivos, where thirty-somethings go from wine room to wine room on weekend trips. Also nearby, enjoy a ten-minute hike through stunning forest to a waterfall at Nojoqui Falls.
If you have a child, make sure you visit nearby Sunny Fields Park with its medieval playground.
