I'm getting married this summer to an amazing and kind woman who is doing all the wedding planning and asks only that I plan our short honeymoon.
My fiance's simple request: I want to hop in the car (from Los Angeles) and spend the next several days eating the best food and trying the best wine that the area has to offer.
After spending several hours reading this board, I'm overwhelmed. I have no idea whether to go Santa Barbara, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez, Paso Robles ... Or do a driving tour of it all?
Money is no object. We love all food, although on this trip it must be excellent. My new wife would be thrilled to visit small wineries with high quality wine that doesn't try to cater to the masses. We will only have four days total. I am in your hands.
Where would you go? Thanks Chowhounds for helping us kick off our marriage to a great start (and from helping me avoid getting kicked to the curbside).
