Join us for a four day wine harvest celebration in Santa Barbara Wine Country featuring the Taste of Santa Barbara Wine Country, wine dinners, vineyard excursions, winery open houses, and the Harvest Experience Passport.
The weekend kicks off with the Taste of Santa Barbara Wine Country on Friday, September 29th from 6:00 – 9:30 p.m at The Fess Parker, A Doubletree Resort, on their beautiful, outside ocean front pavilion.. Enjoy special fall wine releases and library wines from Santa Barbara Vintners member wineries; small bites from some of Santa Barbara’s most exciting restaurants; silent auction to benefit the Santa Barbara Vintners Foundation; and free parking are all included in the ticket price. Early entry is available at 6:00 p.m. for a special price.
Want to visit up to twelve tasting rooms on an all-inclusive wine tasting pass? Get a Harvest Experience Passport for unique and complimentary wine and culinary offerings at your choice of twelve participating tasting rooms from Friday – Sunday. Typically 25 – 40 wineries and tasting rooms participate in this program. When you purchase your passport, you will select your preferred pick-up location. You will print out the ticket receipt, take the receipt to your chosen winery/tasting room, and exchange the receipt for a Harvest Experience Pass.
Throughout the four day weekend many wineries host their own events, including open houses and vineyard hikes. Some of these individual events require reservations directly with the host winery.
