Event hours: 1-4pm. The annual Santa Barbara County Vintners' Festival Weekend attracts wine lovers from near and far for an opportunity to meet member vintners, taste their wines, and enjoy great food and music over a long spring weekend, April 19th – 22nd.
The main event is the Vintner’s Festival being held for the very first time at Mission Santa Ines where the first Vintners’ Festival was held 30 years ago! Enjoy the festive outdoor environment on Saturday, April 20th from 1 to 4pm. The Festival features the wines of our 100+ members of the Association, lively music with Margie Nelson & Band (Classic Jazz/Torch/Swing) and Burning James & The Funky Flames (Blues/Funk/Soul/Jazz Classics), a silent auction benefiting local charities and wine country cuisine by the area’s finest chefs. All of which is included in the price of the festival ticket.
The Vintner’s Visa extends the spring festival weekend by allowing the ticket holder to visit and taste 12 participating wineries from Friday, April 19th through Monday, April 22nd. Typically, there are at least 25 wineries participating in the Vintner’s Visa. A listing of those wineries becomes available on the website once information has been gathered from winery members(after March 1st) so, be sure to check the website from time to time.
Our wineries also host events throughout Santa Barbara Wine Country starting Friday - tastings of library wines or barrel samples, vineyard barbecues, winemaker dinners, wine & food pairings.
