Wines of Santa Barbara County

Sunday, May 22, 2022 – Noon-1:30PM

Santa Barbara Wine Collective

Santa Barbara’s unique geography, topography, and climate all contribute to its position as one of the premier wine producing regions in the world. Come join local wine expert Jennifer Gray for a fun and informative class as you sip and enjoy a selection of Santa Barbara County wines. Learn about the many American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) in Santa Barbara, how and why they are each different and special, and what kinds of wine they produce. This class is perfect for anyone and everyone interested in Santa Barbara wines, from the wine novice to the experienced wine drinker, as it provides an overview of the region. 

We’ve planned this class with the perfect timing to allow for a morning brunch beforehand, and then we encourage you to head out to visit one of the region’s many wineries in person. This class will be held at the Santa Barbara Wine Collective in the Funk Zone in downtown Santa Barbara. 

*Cost includes wine tasting during class. Additional wines available for purchase following class.

Series Events

Wine Series: Wine Tasting with Jen

May 2, 16, 30 – 5:30-7:00PM

Santa Barbara Wine Collective

Intimidated by wine tasting? Not sure how to describe what you like and dislike in a wine? Have no idea why some people taste cherries in wine, or what the heck tannins are? You are not alone!  This series of classes is for you if you like wine, but want to become a more confident consumer. Local wine expert Jennifer Gray will guide you as you train your taste buds and your brain to learn how to identify and describe wines and learn more about why and how we taste what we taste and experience when we sip wine. To bring all this knowledge together, the final class in the series will help you hone your wine and food pairing skills, as you experience combinations of food and wine and learn what works together (and what doesn’t!) and why. All classes will be held at the Santa Barbara Wine Collective in the Funk Zone in downtown Santa Barbara. 

Class Two (May 16): The Structure of Wine
Class Three (May 30): Food and Wine Pairing
