Los Olivos is perhaps the best-known entry on this list. The small town is renowned all over the world for its kind people, welcoming atmosphere, and, of course, being home to some of the best wineries in the country.

The common complaint people have with Los Olivos is that they don’t have the time to visit every winery in the town during a wine tour. The Artisan Excursion team solves this problem through meticulous planning that ensures you can sample and drink to your heart’s content!

5. Los Alamos:

Los Alamos is by far the least known wine haven in California that is inhabited by less than 2000 people! Despite being a very small town, Los Alamos is home to countless top-quality wineries that give every other entry on this list a run for their money!
