STARS of Santa Barbara wine tasting.
The STARS series is staged by Ian Blackburn’s wine education outfit, Learn About Wine. Blackburn is a wine educator who offers a Nebuchadnezzar full of palate-expanding classes and wine tasting events in Southern California all year. His events are typically dressy affairs held in elegant surroundings and offering a huge array of top-quality wines for sampling. He puts a lot into each of his events, so it's likely you'll get a lot out of them.
The 10th Annual STARS of Santa Barbara event is set for Wednesday, January 23, 2013 from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. The event is once again slated for the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills. Tickets start at $59 for general admission, $95 VIP ticket that includes early admission. Those prices may rise as the event fills up to its capacity of 150 attendees.
