Passport to a World of Wine

Although the U.S. has had troubles of late processing passports, Domestic Violence Solutions-Santa Barbara County’s only full-service domestic violence agency-has figured out how to create a passport to a fine wine time, all in support of its good work. For $50, Wine Passport purchasers will receive complimentary wine tastings throughout October (whenever tasting rooms are open) from some of the best wine producers in the valley, including Babcock, Gainey, Lafond, Longoria, Lucas & Lewellen, Mandolina, Palmina, Presidio, Scott Cellars, and Dierberg/Star Lane (which will honor the Passports the last two weeks of October and all of November). Sharpen your wine palate all month, save money, and support the agency’s Lompoc Emergency Shelter. Tickets can be purchased by sending a check payable to Domestic Violence Solutions, 1305 North H Street, Suite A, PMP 354, Lompoc, CA 93436. Only 100 tickets will be sold.
