Skirting the Hill
SANTA YNEZ, CA: A heavy winter of rains have eliminated the threat of drought in Santa Barbara County’s Wine Country near Santa Ynez, California. But the whole state still waits, dry and prone to wildfires, for the first rains of the new season. Because of its close proximity to Southern California and Los Angeles population centers, combined with a Mediterranean climate, the coastal regions of Santa Barbara have become a popular weekend wine getaway destination for millions of tourists each year.
