Foxen Canyon Wine Trail

Foxen Canyon Wine Trail is home to some of the most accomplished winemakers in California. You’ll find a diverse selection of world class wines within our group of 14 wineries along the 30 mile stretch of Foxen Canyon Road that runs between Los Olivos and Santa Maria. Stunning sceneries, vineyards and rolling hills add to the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail experience.

The Foxen Canyon Wine Trail connects Santa Maria Valley and Los Olivos, a journey that gets you out of the city and into the country. There are meandering roads and breathtaking views with tucked-away vineyards all along the 30 mile road. It’s the perfect way to taste wine from the oldest appellation in Santa Barbara County.

The Foxen Canyon Wine Trail Region & Varietals

With one of California’s longest growing seasons and a truly rare transverse geography, the wineries along Foxen Canyon Road produce complex and distinctive wine. The notably balanced grapes that grow here combined with the casual environment demonstrates how Santa Maria Valley values real experiences with real people. Rhône varietals dominate the southern end of the Trail; full-bodied Syrah, Grenache and Viognier thrive in the warmer, inland climate. The Pacific Ocean’s breezes cool the northern end, creating an ideal environment for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Many other varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc, Negrette, Sylvaner, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc can also be found on their wine tasting lists.
