LCOC Western Region Proudly Presents New Spring Event— V8s in the Vines—at Zaca Mesa Winery

LCOC is offering a brand new spring event car show, wine tasting and scenic cruise of beautiful Santa Barbara County on Saturday April 13th, 2024 after several months in the planning. This region is one of the most scenic in the state and our date is planned at one of the best times of the year!

Our LCOC event is planned as a day trip, but with so much to do in this very active area you may wish to make it an enjoyable weekend getaway with an optional overnight stay in one of the nearby communities.

The famed Zaca Mesa Winery  6905 Foxen Canyon Rd, Los Olivos, CA 93441 will host our main event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m for a wonderful car and wine experience right in their vineyard, where we will display our Lincolns and enjoy their premium wine tasting followed by a group cruise to Los Olivos and/or Solvang.

Established in 1973, Zaca Mesa is a family-owned and operated winery with a long-standing history in Santa Barbara County. As the first vineyard to plant Syrah in the area in 1978, Zaca Mesa has since helped pioneer the Santa Barbara Rhône movement through an unwavering dedication to Syrah and Rhône varietals.

Combining traditional old-world winemaking practices with innovative farming and vineyard techniques, Zaca Mesa continues its legacy as a producer of high-quality California Rhône-style wines. We invite you to experience the true beauty of the estate overlooking the vineyards and the San Rafael Mountains.

Lunch will be a highly recommended option of delicious sandwiches including small salad and chips from Panino

Nearby Los Olivos (The Olives) is just a short 14-minute drive away and features an easily walkable quaint town of historic buildings and nearly 30 tasting rooms plus rustic stores where gourmet olives are sold among many other delicacies.

Solvang is about 25 minutes from Zaca Mesa by car and is famed for its Danish inspired buildings and food. Initially, most of Solvang’s buildings were built in the same style as others in the area. But after World War II, interest grew in the concept of a “Danish Village”. Over the years it has been a very popular day trip or weekend destination from L.A. Metro.

The pioneer of the Danish Provincial style was Ferdinand Sorensen, originally from Nebraska. In the mid-1940s, after returning to Solvang from a trip to Denmark, he first completed Møllebakken, his Danish-styled home, and then went on to build the first of the village’s four windmills. A little later, Earl Petersen, a local architect, gave the older buildings a new look, adding façades in so-called “Danish Provincial” style.
