Time for From the Vine

From the Vine, my bi-weekly column in the Santa Maria Times and Lompoc Record, is all about Los Olivos, Ballard, and Solvang today.

Here’s the free link to read my latest column in the Santa Maria Time and the Lompoc Record:


Not only do we tip you off to some surprise wine and beer tastings we didn’t know of until last week, we boast of all of our favorite eateries and tasting rooms. We’ll be adding our full stories about the new places soon. But for now you can learn more about it all in the Santa Maria Times.


There’s nothing better than a staycation in wine country. Especially so in a town like Solvang where’s there are plenty of options for inexpensive hotels, or luxury resorts. It’s not just for tourists, there are so many fine offerings in tasting rooms, restaurants both cheap and well worth the luxury prices, and with them so close together in this walkable town, you don’t have to worry about drinking and driving.

That why we love it, bon appetit!
