Celebration of Harvest Weekend
The Celebration of Harvest Weekend, our annual celebration of the year's bounty, where vintners take a break from the vineyards and cellars to pour their wines and share harvest tales. The highlight of the weekend is the Celebration of Harvest Festival on Saturday in the heart of Santa Barbara Wine County in Santa Maria Valley, where more than 100 Santa Barbara County wineries gather to present their wines, often poured by the winemakers themselves. The Festival also presents some of the best local food from restaurants, catering companies and gourmet food creators.
Throughout the weekend select wineries host their own events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, ranging from winemaker dinners through library tastings and sales to new wine releases and barrel tastings.
A favorite feature of the weekend is the Vintners' Visa - your passport to complimentary wine tastings at twelve winery tasting rooms - use the Vintners' Visa to explore new wineries - or revisit old friends. The Vintners' Visa can be used on all four days of the long weekend - Friday through Monday.
