Those of you who read The JetSetting Fashionista know that Wine Country is one of my favorite destinations to write about. And, being a Chardonnay and Pinot Noir lover there isn’t a region that I believe does these two varietals better than in Santa Barbara’s Wine Country. Read some of my Wine Country coverage here including the Top 10 Tasting Rooms in Lompoc here, The Best Wineries in Sta. Rita Hills here, and where to Eat and Drink in Los Olivos here. And if you’re wine tasting you, of course, need a place to stay so check out my list of the Best Santa Barbara Hotels below.

The Ballard Inn
The Ballard Inn is a boutique hotel in Ballard California. It’s a mile or two from the charming Solvang California. This Spring I had the pleasure of staying at The Ballard Inn during a visit to the Santa Ynez region. I fell in love. It’s hard not to with a super chic, intimate setting. You feel as if you’re staying in someone’s home rather than in a hotel. Moreover, as if the charming boutique hotel isn’t a draw enough, they also have a fabulous restaurant, The Gathering Table. There, Hotel and Restaurant Owner, Chef Budi Kazali artistically melds Asian and French cuisine in a lovely setting. It features seasonal, locally sourced produce, seafood, and meats. 2436 Baseline Avenue, Ballard, California 93463
