Great wines

You normally can't find these delicious wines at retail outlets, so come taste at the winery. Friendly and capable staff describe the interesting family history and explain their several different varietals and blends. Check it out.

Many options!

The Foxen Canyon Wine Trail offers lots of opportunities, some large wineries some small. With a little research in advance, you can taste some excellent wines. All are served in very pleasant settings.

Visiting both, the Shack and the winery was great! Go ahead and splurge for the Pinot flight if you are visiting the winery

A Hidden Gem - Don't miss!
Jul 2019 • Friends
This is a not so well known area to go wine touring - but what a surprise! There are quite a few wineries (and some quite good indeed) in the Foxen Canyon area and around Santa Maria to Los Olivos in general... And not so many people !!
Take your time to meander down the road that winds your way through the valleys with little wineries here and there to stop and explore. We went from Santa Maria down the 2 lane road to Los Olivos - a nice trek for a long day. Favorite was Foxen Canyon Winery.

It's a Must-Do

Give yourself a whole day here, and do it leisurely. Start at one end of the trail and work you way north.

Hidden Wine Country Gem

My husband and I visited the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail this weekend for the first time using the annual Summer Sipping Passport discount. We were amazed of its quaintness, scenic beauty and the high quality wines. We have visited Napa, Sonoma and Santa Ynez, and were very impressed with Foxen Canyon.

The weather is not hot in June as compared to later in the summer. And best of all the crowds were minimal and nonexistent on Sunday. There were many times at the Northern end of the canyon (where some of the best wineries are) we were the only ones or with at most 1-2 other couples.

We got a great deal with the Summer Sipping Passport for the Radisson hotel in Santa Maria. The hotel and wine tasting discounts along with all of the freebies (free food / snacks, water bottle, wine glass, etc.) made this not only a very enjoyable trip but very economical, too. We discovered some new favorite wines and definitely will be returning.

Lovely place to just drive through slowly taking in the beauty of the landscape. We didnt stop for any of the tastings, but if thats what you are here for there are plenty of options.

Wonderful wineries
Apr 2019 • Friends
I had no idea there were so many wineries in the Santa Maria area until researching for this trip. We were able to visit a few wineries on the trail in one day but it is difficult to do so since they aren't as close to each other as it seems. There is also very little cell phone reception, which makes navigation difficult. I would definitely plan the trip out on an old fashioned map so you don't get lost!
