A Day in the Santa Ynez Valley

Start your day by heading over to the quaint little town of Los Olivos.  Visit Sanger Family Wines to experience Consilience, Tre Anelli and Marianello Wines , as well as some of the best olive oils in the state.  Their Marianello Olive Farm is here in the valley and is planted solely to the Lucca variety.  All the work is done by hand and pressed locally.  All the oils are first pressed extra virgin and unfiltered.  This gives honest and exquisite results that you will taste and love.  We love visiting this tasting room, as there are many wines to try along with the delectable oils.  We always leave with bottles of both.

Once you are ready for dinner, be sure to visit SY Kitchen in Santa Ynez.  They are the greatest choice for a perfect and passionate dinner  to round out a perfect day.  The Kitchen offers modern Italian dishes in a lively atmosphere with an open kitchen where you can watch chefs (Luca and Francesco Crestanelli) creating “an enriched authentic culinary experience that honors traditional Italian cuisine”  Always using local and fresh ingredients, “farm to table” is not a concept here, but a way-of-life.  Every dish is truly amazing, but we highly recommend the beet salad, any pasta (all homemade of course), especially the short rib ragu, and the hearty roast chicken.  We prefer to just order several thins and dine family style, sharing and tasting everything.  End the night with an extraordinary cocktail from their brilliant mixologist out on the porch by the fire pit.   A perfect day in the Santa Ynez Valley…
