In quintessential Santa Barbara form, a full weekend celebrating wine and vineyards is coming to town this April. The Santa Barbara Vintners Spring Weekend is historically one of the city’s most popular annual events, and this year aims to maintain—or to exceed—its exceptionally high standards. With a weekend-long itinerary of dinners and expos centered around the Vintners Festival Grand Tasting, this is the ideal time for visitors to experience one of our most sought after local attractions—vino.
For the best (and most affordable) access to all of Vintners Spring Weekend’s various events, consider purchasing the Vintners Visa. The package provides patrons with a complimentary wine tasting at 12 different wineries around Santa Barbara County. In an area known for having some of the most successful vineyards in the world, that’s one extraordinary deal.
The Vintners Visa makes it easy to participate in all of the four-day long series of wine and food events, held at various wineries around Santa Barbara County. From winemaker dinners, to celebrations of new wine debuts, and from barrel tastings to a silent auction featuring some of the region’s most impressive vintages, there’s no shortage of opportunities to wet your palate. There will also be a grand tasting on April 25th, where all of the 120+ Santa Barbara Vintners wineries will provide choice vinos for public tasting. The Vintners Festival Grand Tasting will also feature local restaurant vendors, pop-up wine seminars, live music, and more.
In the spirit of this weekend, it’s important to remember that everybody with a taste for wine who visits Santa Barbara should pay a visit to our local wineries. Of course, if you’re in town during the Santa Barbara Vintners Spring Weekend, then you’ve won the wine lover’s lotto. For easy access to what’s considered by many as the Super Bowl of wine, check into Hotel Milo during this festival.
