Wineries with great white wines in Santa Ynez Valley

I am taking a two-day wine tasting trip to Santa Ynez at the end of the month. I've already done research on the Chowhound boards and have found some excellent suggestions for both wineries and restaurants.

We will spend one day (a Monday) driving through Foxen Canyon, and I have Zaca Mesa, Rancho Sisquoc, and Kenneth Volk on our "must visit" list, with Tres Hermanas, Riverbench, Foxen, and Cambria as strong second choices.

--How are my choices so far???

Our second day is completely up in the air, but it looks like Lompoc Wine Ghetto is out of the question, as most of the tasting rooms seem to be closed on Tuesdays.

I am in desparate need of good white wines. I'm not really good at describing what I like, but I can say I don't care for sweet wines. I like both crisp and buttery wines, and would prefer wines in the $10-$20 range. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
