Recap: Celebration of the Harvest 2013

This past Saturday we officially kicked off the autumnal season by attending the Celebration of the Harvest Festival sponsored by the Santa Barbara County Vintners Association. Food, wine, live music, and an idyllic setting made for a perfect fall day. The scenic drive through Foxen Canyon, meandering through Santa Barbara wine country to the picturesque Rancho Sisquoc Winery, put us in the mood to taste new wines. With plenty of access to winemakers, tasty bites from many wine country restaurants, and the live music stage, we’ve decided that this is an event we won’t want to miss next year.

A few standout wineries pouring at the event included Jorian Hill Vineyards, Pence Ranch, Refugio Ranch, and anything made with fruit from Bien Nacido Vineyards. We highly recommend getting your hands on some of these wines. They may have limited production so it might be a challenge, but definitely worth the effort.

We even managed to snap a few photos from the Harvest festival:
