Picnic spots in Solvang/Santa Ynez

Does anyone know of a good spot for a picnic somewhere between the wineries of the Santa Ynez region? Blame my romanticized and limited knowledge of the area (based on Sideways, of course), but is it legal to have open containers of alcohol in public areas?

SB County is very strict regarding open containers. Having said this, there are several wonderful picnic facilities at some of the wineries. Rideau, Bridlewood, and Rusack all have picture perfect picnic areas on their properties. There's also a great cheese shop in Solvang that has tables outside you can drink wine at (it's PRIVATE property, therefore legal). They can even set you up with a variety of gourmet cheeses to be specifically paired to the local wine varietals.

Cheers!
