The Santa Barbara Vintners New Release Spring Weekend is four days of wine, food and fun throughout Santa Barbara Wine Country Thursday, April 20 – Sunday, April 23, 2017.
It’s a wonderful time of year to try more of the Santa Barbara County wines you love, get to know the people who make it, and explore back road wineries and vineyards. Throughout the weekend select wineries host their own events, ranging from winemaker dinners to library tastings, and offer sales of new wine releases and barrel tastings.
The celebration culminates with the 35th Annual Santa Barbara Vintners Festival Grand Tasting on Saturday, April 22, from 1 to 4 pm, at the River View Park in Buellton, a short 20 minute drive from Lompoc hotels. Enjoy new release wines from participating wineries (including several from Lompoc!) food sampling from more than twenty food purveyors, live music, wine and culinary demonstrations, local artisans, a silent auction, and free parking — all included in the ticket price.
