Swirl, Sip, and Savor… at the Santa Barbara Wine Festival, June 28

While visiting Jaffurs Wine Cellars, our first winery visit to Santa Barbara County yesterday, we learned that a special Wine Festival is coming up this weekend. The Santa Barbara Wine Festival, Saturday, June 28 benefits the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. More than 50 Santa Barbara County wineries will be participating in the Wine Festival. In addition to the wineries, more than 20 food vendors will be at the festival.

According to the website for the festival, “This annual summer Wine Festival helps support the Museum’s mission to inspire our citizens to explore, embrace, and take care of our natural world; 100% of the Wine Festival proceeds help us achieve these goals through science education and engaging exhibits.”

The museum was started in 1916 by William Leon Dawson under the name “Museum of Comparative Oology.” The current site of the museum opened in 1923. More details about the museum and what it includes are available online.

In addition to the wines and foods available, a special raffle will take place. For a $30 raffle donation, you will receive a prize. “Just donate $30 for a chance to pull a cork, and you will win a prize from one of the wineries or vendors, a Museum Membership, or even a pair of tickets to next year’s Santa Barbara Wine Festival. Average retail cost of prizes is $50, so don’t forget to bring your cash and take home a great prize.”

Tickets prices: Members $70; Non-members $95
(if purchased by Friday, June 27 at 5:00pm)

At the Door: $105/person

Museum Parking: $20 per vehicle
(Free offsite parking and shuttle service available)

If you enjoy wine and food and want to support a worthy organization, consider attending the Santa Barbara Wine Festival this Saturday, June 28.
