Swig Wine in a Stable
Spending hours tipsy on a horse could be the plot of a bad Adam Sandler movie. Vino Vaqueros, the equine-and-wine experience in Santa Ynez, gets it right.
Leave in the morning to avoid traffic on the two-and-a-half-hour drive to Estelle Vineyards.
Snacking is encouraged. Stop at the Montecito Country Mart for sandwiches from Panino’s.
Take an hour-and-a-half trail ride through rows of grape vines. Afterward enjoy a glass of estate wine.
Dinner at Brothers Restaurant is a quality finish.
