Leg One of The Amazing Race 20 saw the teams racing from the departing point of the race in the Bridlewood Winery in Santa Barbara, California, United States to Argentina. Filmed on November 26-28, 2011 and it aired first in the USA and Canada on February 19, 2012.

Bridlewood Winery

The race began with Phil welcoming the eleven teams, explaining the basic rules of the race, introducing the Express Pass, and shouting "Go!" Teams were then instructed to head to the winery behind them to search inside of one hundred paper balloons floating over the ground for one of eleven containing their first clue. They would then find vehicles in the parking lot that they could use to travel to the Los Angeles airport.

Los Angeles International Airport

  • Los Angeles
  • Distance: 107 miles

The first six teams to arrive would receive tickets for the first flight that would land in Salta, while the remaining five teams would be on the second flight to land. All teams rode the same flight connecting in Buenos Aires, however.

Martín Miguel de Güemes International Airport

Santa Bárbara Town Limits

Winery in Cafayate
  • Distance: 74.6 miles

After being told to fly to Santa Bárbara from the starting line city of Santa Barbara, teams had to keep their eyes peeled for a clue box next to this road sign.

Aerodromo Gilberto Lavaque

  • Cafayate
  • Distance: 16.7 miles

Roadblock.png Roadblock: When teams found this aerodrome, they found the first Roadblock of the race. Who's got a great sense of direction? The chosen team member would receive a map and would have to follow it in their vehicles to find a designated skydive drop zone. Their partner, however, would be taken in an airplane to the skies and would perform a tandem skydive to the drop zone. Once both team members reunited, they would receive their next clue.

Art, Bopper, Brendon, Cherie, Andrew, Danny, Kerri, Maiya, Jamie, Dave, Ralph

Patios de Cafayate Winery

  • Cafayate
  • Distance: 1.91 miles

Teams would have to properly make 120 empanadas, 60 filled with meat and 60 filled with cheese. Teams needed to pay attention, as the two different types would have different crimping styles when folding the dough. Once they had finished them all, teams would be directed to the Pit Stop.
