The Passion of Wine: Exploring Santa Barbara’s Artisanal Wine Country

Although it inspired the hit movie “Sideways,” Santa Barbara is a relatively young and unknown wine region. Out of this youthfulness springs a passion. Experience this exuberance and artisanal pride as owners and managers convey their vineyards’ “terroir” — the character of the land. Learn about the wine-making process, from grape to barrel to bottle. Get hands-on experience blending the perfect wine yourself, learn what to look for in a wine, and hear from chefs how to pair wines with foods. Join us as we taste our way through the secrets and stories of beautiful Santa Barbara wine country.
