A spirited toast to all things alcoholic! by Leslie Dinaberg
President’s Day Weekend is also Wine Country Weekend from February 15-18 in Santa Ynez Valley.
Put on by the Santa Ynez Valley Wine Country Association, this four-day event is a great way to spend your long weekend.
The 13 participating tasting rooms include:
Buttonwood Farm Winery (also celebrating the release of their NEW 2018 Grenache Rosé and Syrah Rosé)
For the past 15 years, Santa Ynez Valley Wine Country Association has put on this event. “Many Guests return every year to taste and purchase our wines as well as have great food and fun with other fellow wine lovers, ” says Ross Rankin, the association president.
“Our 13 wineries employ many from our community. New and returning guests learn about our boutique wineries and the wonderful and unusual wines we produce from Santa Barbara County. Purchasing passes for this wonderful weekend help to allow our family winery traditions to continue,” he says.
Tickets are $65 and include tastings at each winery, complimentary small bites, a signature wine glass and wine tote. In addition, Saturday shuttle passes are available for $19 each. For more information or to purchase tickets, click here.
