Santa Barbara County Harvest Festival
Old Mission Santa Ynez
Santa Barbara County Vintners' Association member wineries gather twice each year to present their wines, often poured by the winemakers themselves. The Festival presents samples of some of the best local food from restaurants, catering companies and gourmet food purveyors.
Over the festival weekend, wineries also present their own events, ranging from Winemaker's Dinners to library tastings and sales to new wine releases and barrel tastings.
Visit www.SBCountyWines.com or phone 888-330-6744 to purchase tickets and bus passes. Early bird tickets are available at $65 per person until August 15th, when the price increases to $75 per person in advance, and $85 at the gate if tickets are still available.
This year, the festival will be followed by Wine & Cheese Pairings at Lucas & Lewellen and Toccata, which will then be followed by a Harvest Festival Concert by Toad the Wet Sprocket at the Solvang Festival Theater. To purchase tickets, visit the SBCVA.
