Wine Month

Uncork the Story of Santa Ynez Valley Wine during SYV Wine Month in September 2015. One of the most celebrated times of year in the Santa Ynez Valley takes place from August through November. Harvest in the heart of Santa Barbara Wine Country is a revered season when visitors and locals can experience wine from grape to glass. To celebrate, VisitSYV has declared September “Santa Ynez Valley Wine Month” and will be honoring wine with events, classes, dinners, deals and packages. As part of California Wine Month, these events and promotions can be found in the towns of Buellton, Ballard, Los Alamos, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez, and Solvang.

Stay tuned for a complete listing of Wine Month events, participating tasting rooms and deals.
