Local wine industry, restaurant, hospitality and tourism professionals are invited to gather at our vineyard tasting room for a special private event. To celebrate our 10th year of sparkling wine production, we'll be pouring a selection of our newly released still and sparkling wines made from our estate grown Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, to be accompanied with signature dishes from Testa Catering. Wines will be served in our garden and at stations throughout the vineyard, so you can see the blocks where the wines are grown. This will include a tractor ride through the vineyard to our Chapel View block, just below the historic San Ramon Chapel, where Santa Barbara's only Pinot Meunier is grown. The bocce court and horseshoe pits will be open for friendly winery vs. winery challenges. Note that this is a private, after-hours event for employees of local wineries, restaurants, hotels and tourism organizations. Please bring your business card or proof of employment to present at check in.
