Santa Barbara Wine + Food Festival Attracts Santa Barbara County’s Finest on June 29

June 29, 2019 @ 2:00 am PDT

The Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History will again host the region’s premier wine and food event on Saturday, June 29 from 2:00-5:00 PM. Boasting unparalleled quality and ambiance, the acclaimed Santa Barbara Wine + Food FestivalTM sells out earlier and earlier every year. Net proceeds from the festival support the Museum’s nature and science education programs for all ages.
On the Museum’s 14-acre campus along the shaded banks of Mission Creek, guests will mingle with award winning winemakers and chefs while enjoying the best of Central Coast food and wines. New this year, the festival will expand to the recently renovated Museum Backyard and Butterfly Pavilion. The VIP Lounge across the creek will be double the size, and all guests will have more room to roam while sampling exquisite wine and food pairings. 
Unlike other wine festivals that can be crowded or overrun, the Santa Barbara Wine + Food Festival offers a serene experience where an appreciation for the best is shared by everyone—from the wineries and the food purveyors to the guests themselves. “This is one of the very best tastings that we attend throughout the year,” says Richard Sanford of Alma Rosa. Jim Clendenen of Au Bon Climat reports, “This is the most beautiful tasting, the most beautiful setting that I do anywhere in the country.”
