Join us for a rare opportunity to peek Behind the Scenes with the winemakers and owners of Santa Barbara County’s world class wines!

Behind the Scenes is a series of events offered over the weekend of May 19-21 throughout Santa Barbara County’s stunning wine country. Attendees can choose from a variety of experiences including evening tastings in the vineyards, to in-depth winemaker discussions set in the winery barrel rooms. The line up of weekend events kicks off at Roblar Winery with a tasting of the region’s 7 distinct AVAs, and then follows with winemaker discussions delving into specific varietals and new techniques, a sparkling wine tasting at the Hilt, and a discussion about the future of the local wine industry with the next generation now leading some of oldest wineries in the area.
