Santa Rosa Road

Want to ride through wine country?
This is your ride.

If you hit half of the local wineries and tasting rooms, you’ll never finish your ride: Alma Rosa, Terravant, Pench Ranch, Spear, Clos Pepe – and you’re not halfway yet. After lunch in Lompoc you’ll return via Santa Rosa Rd you’ll pass D’Alfonso & Curran, Sanford, Fiddlestix, LaFond, and Thorne near the end of this ride.

Film buffs will enjoy riding where “Sideways” was filmed in 2004.

Beer drinkers will want to visit Buellton’s Figueroa Mountain and Firestone Walker Brewing Company.
