Santa Barbara Wine

Santa Barbara Wine

If you love wine, Santa Barbara's winery tours, wine tasting, wine festivals, winemaker's dinners and more will let you drink your fill of the how's and why's. You can also learn a lot more in our Sip & Savor e-newsletter. But really, all it takes to love a Santa Barbara wine is a single sip. Cheers!

There are as many quotes about wines as there are wines themselves, but the Roman poet Horace may have said it best: Wine brings to light the hidden secrets of the soul, gives being to our hopes and teaches new means for the accomplishment of our wishes. And nowhere offers a better place to get in touch with those secrets, hopes and wishes than Santa Barbara!

Though our wine chops weren't as widely known before the Oscar®-winning film Sideways shone a spotlight on Santa Barbara (download a free self-guided-tour map of filming locations), regional vineyards have yielded award-winning wines since the 70s, and today oenophiles around the world raise a glass to the quality of vintages that spring from Santa Barbara soil. The area has become known for remarkable wine tours and wine tasting.

Yes, it really is that good, thanks again to our unique climate and lay of the land: east-west mountains rise along the coast, opening warm-weather valleys to Pacific breezes that cool the grapes and create an unusually long growing season. But don't just take our word for it - experience it for yourself with an afternoon stroll along Santa Barbara's downtown Urban Wine Trail.
