Lompoc California April 15-18th 2011 is the place to be for The Annual Santa Barbara County Vintners Festival
One event that we have attended for years is the annual Santa Barbara County Vintners' Festival Weekend that attracts wine lovers from near and far for an opportunity to meet member vintners, taste their wines, and enjoy great food and music over a long spring weekend, April 15th - 18th.
The main event is the Vintners' Festival - a festive outdoor environment on Saturday, April 16th from 1 to 4pm. The Festival features the wines of over 110 members of the Association, live and lively music, a silent auction and wine country cuisine by the area’s finest chefs. The Festival will once again be held at River Park in Lompoc.
For the first time this year, they will offer VIP Early Entry tickets to the Festival. Guests can be one of the first to enter and experience wine tasting with this early entry ticket. This special Vintner's Festival ticket allows guests to enter one hour prior and experience the more than one hundred vintners and winemakers of the organization, who will be pouring their latest releases of the sixty-five plus varietals of wine grown in the county before anyone else!
The many wineries also host events throughout Santa Barbara Wine Country starting Friday - tastings of library wines or barrel samples, vineyard barbecues, winemaker dinners, wine & food pairings. You can out each day's events at http://www.sbcountywines.com/events.html
See you there !
