Amazing Race at Bridlewood Winery

CBS TV Show Kicks Off Season in Santa Ynez Valley

This Sunday, Santa Barbarans will have a good reason to tune in to The Amazing Race season premiere on CBS: It will be kicking off in our very own backyard.

The popular reality TV show will feature Bridlewood Estate Winery as its starting point for the 12 pairs of adventure-seekers who are in the running to win the $1 million grand prize. The show, now in its 10th year, sends its contestants on a treasure hunt of sorts — complete with riddles and challenges — all around the world, and Santa Barbara County is the first pin on this season’s map.

With its rustic Spanish architecture set amidst the rolling hills of the Santa Ynez Valley, Bridlewood may prove to be a better finish line than beginning, as the contestants may never want to leave! Check your local listings for details.


If you want to visit the location yourself and try some artfully blended wines, Bridlewood Winery is at 3555 Roblar Avenue. Call (805) 688-9000 or see
