SBC Celebration Of Harvest
The annual Celebration of Harvest is held each October when winery staff need a break to present their latest wines. This year's Santa Barbara County Celebration of Harvest will be held on October 10, from 1:00 to 4:00, on the ground of the Rancho Sisuoc Winery in the Santa Maria Valley.
Over 100 Santa Barbara County wineries will showcase their wines along with food from local restaurants, caterers and food suppliers. Live music will be provided by several bands and a Silent Auction of special wines will be held. Tickets are $65 each, $75 at the door.
A related program, the Vintner's Visa, is a tasting pass ($35) good for 12 wineries and is held over 4 days, October 9-12. The wineries are offering barrel tastings, library selections and food and wine pairings.
In addition, many wineries are offering their own open houses, luncheons, and dinners, such as the harvest BBQ at Melville, Tantara and Kenneth Volk Vineyards. Visit the website at www.sbcountywines.com for tickets and a complete listing of the four day events. The phone number is 805-668-0881.
