Post Lunch Winery Visits Get Intense (Page Three)
Tummies are full and we are quite dry so look out wine tasting rooms, here we come.
Post Lunch Summary
Did You Know? - Even the shortest visit will quickly reveal that Santa Barbara does things a little differently. A little better. A little easier and a lot more laid back. Wine lovers recognize this humble approach in the first sip of any Santa Barbara County wine.
So when a group of like-minded vintners got together and developed the Urban Wine Trail, it made perfect Santa Barbara sense: a collection of tasting rooms featuring the best of Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Valley, all within blocks of each other, downtown and the beach. Carefree, car free tasting that fits in perfectly with your visit to downtown Santa Barbara—no matter how short.
Walk, rent a pedicab or a cruiser bike and wander Santa Barbara's Urban Wine Trail where you'll find the best of Santa Barbara County wines around the next corner and just down the block. Download a map, take a few steps and start sipping at these Urban Wine Trail wineries:
