Please join us for our Milo Uncorked wine series event on Friday, June 24, 2016 from 4-6 p.m.
Milo Uncorked offers guests and locals a quintessential California experience of drinking wine by the beach. For this tasting session, we have partnered with Sunstone Winery.
Established by the Rice Family in 1989, the Sunstone Winery Estate Vineyard is one of the first organic and bio-sustainable vineyards in Santa Barbara area. Still practicing the highest organic farming standards, Sunstone Winery produces award winning Bordeaux and Rhone varietals. The Sunstone name comes from the vineyard estate’s exposed sun-dapple shale and stones that litter the Santa Ynez Valley. On the Sunstone Estate, the Rice family has built an 8,500 square foot villa using artifacts and building materials from France including, French limestone reclaimed from ruble in villages and hand-hewn pine beams from Queen Victoria’s lavender factory. The villa is used as a culinary center to entertain guests. Now lead by the Rice Family’s son Bion Rice, Sunstone Winery has won awards for its Rhone style Viognier and Syrah.
Representatives from the winery will be pouring a selection of their wines from 4-6 p.m. in the Fountain Courtyard, adjacent to the main lobby of Hotel Milo.
