SANTA YNEZ VALLEY, Calif., Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Harvest in the heart of Santa Ynez Valley Wine Country is a revered time, when both visitors and residents piece together the story of our local wines, from grape to glass. To commemorate this special time of year, Visit the Santa Ynez Valley is celebrating with our second annual "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.
Discover the evolution of wine in the Santa Ynez Valley with "Uncorked", an exhibit hosted by the Santa Ynez Valley Historical Museum. All month long, the exhibit traces the region's history, highlighting the pioneering winemakers who helped bring international recognition to the Santa Ynez Valley as a region for producing exceptionally fine wines. Extend your wine knowledge with classes and seminars offered by The Good Life and Wandering Dog Wine Bar. Then, get a closer view of wine country by enjoying a vineyard tour, picnic luncheon and barrel tasting with Sanford Winery & Vineyards.
To commemorate the 10th Anniversary of Sideways, the Solvang Conference and Visitors Bureau will sponsor a Merlot Taste-Off at Solvang Festival Theater. Next, celebrate the marriage of wine and food with The Los Olivos Wine Merchant Café's Rock Steady Winemaker Dinner. Enjoy 6 courses prepared by Chef Chris Joslyn, paired with wines from legendary winemakers Bob Lindquist of Qupé, Jim Clendenen of Au Bon Climat, and Trey Fletcher of Bien Nacido Estate. After all that wine, you'll want a comfortable place to stay and relax. Visitors can take advantage of terrific packages or deals offered by hotels such as The Ballard Inn & Restaurant, King Frederik Inn, Pea Soup Andersen's Inn, and Wine Valley Inn & Cottages.
