The Celebration of Harvest in Santa Barbara County is an October tradition - a time when the vintners in this amazing winemaking region take a little break from harvesting their fruit and roll out some of their wares for tasting in a centralized location. Rancho Sisquoc Winery will serve as the scenic locale again this year. Celebration of Harvest occurs Saturday October 10, 2009 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The entire four-day weekend, though, features special events and tastings at many of the individual wineries. Tickets to the Celebration cost $65, $25 for designated drivers, and there is a "Vintners' Visa" ticket for $35 that includes events at a selection of other wineries over the four-day weekend.
Beyond these events there are tons of other activities at nearly all the wineries. Check out the Santa Barbara County Vintners' Association for all the juicy details.
