Folded Hills estate tasting room at the Homestead welcomes guests to try wines nestled among organic vineyards and row crops. Located just 40 minutes from Santa Barbara and right off the 101 freeway, the flagship tasting room is the closest vineyard to the ocean and the first tasting room on the way to wine country. Just across the street is the Folded Hills Farmstead where guests can feed and pet baby farm animals. A second tasting room, located in Montecito’s lower village, welcomes guests who want a taste of ranch country in an urban seaside setting.

Tucked away between the coastal mountains of Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez Valley lies our 600 acre estate, Folded Hills. Folded Hills is built on our desire to preserve this agriculturally rich land while sharing our family’s story and lifestyle through the wine and food that we cultivate.

Folded Hills is a fully-functioning organic farm and vineyard built with the mission to share our healthy and active way of life. Contact Folded Hills to set up a private tour of the ranch and wine tasting. We also invite you to visit the Folded Hills Farmstead and pick your own organic estate grown berries or produce. Feed friendly Kune Kune pigs, take Clydesdale selfies and snuggle miniature donkeys and goats.

Discover your inner artist at a Painting in the Vineyard event! We invite you to grab a glass of wine and a paintbrush and join us for a fun and relaxing outdoor experience. Bring your friends and family and capture the scenery on canvas. Our local vineyards provide a beautiful, stress-free environment that will both inspire your creative spirit and indulge the wine-lover in you.

No painting experience necessary–a trained, local artist will walk you through the entire two-hour painting process step-by-step, and you’ll take home a landscape painting of your own to commemorate your trip to wine country.

Consider a private painting event to celebrate birthdays, bachelorette parties, bridal showers, anniversaries, girls trips, family reunions, corporate team-building events and more.

Visit www.artspotonwheels.com to see our full array of Painting in the Vineyard classes. Or call 805.325.8092 to inquire about private events.

Grass Mountain Trail is a 5.2 mile out and back trail located near the towns of Los Olivos and Santa Ynez. Depending on the season, the trail may feature beautiful wildflowers which adds to its popularity. The trail is primarily used for hiking and rated as difficult; dogs on leash are also able to use this trail.

Starting off easy, this trail steadily increases in difficulty until the final mile directly up the side of the mountain to the peak. It is not the highest mountain in the area but has commanding views over most the surrounding area.

The Grass Mountain hiking trail is part of The Midland School trails, a private trail system opened to the public through the generosity of the school. Hikers must fill out a permit and parking pass at the trail head, where permit boxes are located.

Finding the Trailhead: Shortly after passing what was formerly Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch, as you ascend Figueroa Mountain Road, you will cross over a cattle guard. Parking should be availab
