Cheers to the Vintners Festival!

Solvang, CaliforniaSpring has definitely sprung—you can tell since it’s readily apparent in the vineyards surrounding us here in Solvang with “bud break” giving way to “leafy shoots”—and that means it’s time for the annual Spring Vintners Festival. This year, a full 4-day celebration of our local wines is April 10-13, 2014. Sponsored by the non-profit Santa Barbara Vintners organization, there are so many exciting events and activities on offer— you’ll definitely want to come stay, sip and swirl in Solvang for awhile! For example, don’t miss “The Grand Tasting” event on Saturday, 4/12/14 from 1-4pm showcasing over 110 different Santa Barbara County wineries and restaurants at River View Park in nearby Buellton (we hosted it last year in Solvang and it moves around the Valley). Now expanded with a Connoisseur’s Club Lounge experience, cooking & barrel cooper demonstrations, art walk, live music, botanical garden and wine sales (new this year). There’s so many activities happening this coming weekend all around Solvang including winemaker dinners, hikes, wine & cheese pairings and special vineyard open houses. Here’s where to get all the details and your tickets:
