Getting Sideways

The Oscar award winning film SIDEWAYS was filmed almost entirely on-location throughout Solvang and the Santa Ynez Valley.

The Fox Searchlight feature film "Sideways" premiered in Fall 2004 and won numerous awards including an Oscar and two Golden Globes. The tale of two middle-aged men and the women they meet on a week-long wine tasting adventure brought world-wide recognition to the area. Visitors can personally experience real-life scenes from the movie with specialty maps and tour packages.
