We were so excited when the Bacara’s tasting room opened that we wrote a Cocktail Corner column about it and made it an editor’s pick in the fall issue of Santa Barbara SEASONS. Well guess what? Now they’re having an “official” launch party featuring a select portfolio of Foley Family Wines and, as if that weren’t enough to entice us, proceeds from the event will go to the nonprofit Santa Barbara Culinary Arts group and their endowment in the name of Julia Child for scholarships at the School of Culinary Arts at SBCC.
Wines available include renowned wineries such as Kuleto Estate, Chalk Hill Estate, Sebastiani, Lancaster Estate and Santa Ynez Valley’s Firestone Vineyard, Foley Estates Vineyard & Winery and Eos Estate Winery. The all-inclusive event features a keepsake wine glass for wine tasting as well as various chef stations with mouth-watering cuisine paired with wines. Partygoers will have access to the gorgeous grounds of the Bacara Resort & Spa as well.
Tickets are pretty affordable (Society Member Price: $40, Non-Member Price: $60) and it all takes place on Saturday, September 28 from 3–6 p.m. at the Bacara Resort & Spa, 8301 Hollister Ave. For more information or to purchase tickets email Danielle Maxwell at email@example.com, or visit foleyfoodandwinesociety.com.
