Join us for a delightful and informative hour of tasting wines at AVA Winery, in the heart of Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone. AVA Winery, The Valley Project, is a new winery and tasting room specializing in making small batch wines from Santa Barbara’s classic and most exciting new vineyards. Wines are made to highlight the unique characteristics of the growing regions and vineyards they came from, so be prepared to think as you drink. The summer wine menu includes a zippy Gruner Veltliner from Santa Rita Hills, elegant Chardonnay from Los Alamos, aromatic Viognier from Santa Ynez, floral Pinot Noir from Santa Maria, and a berry-rich Cabernet Franc from Santa Ynez. Think of your tasting as a sip-by-sip tour of Santa Barbara’s wine country. Cost is $12 per person. Casa bus departs at 3:45 pm; tasting begins at 4:00 pm, and we’ll be home in time for supper. Space is limited to 22 participants, so sign up in the Mail Room TODAY!
