Wine Tour with Icing

Santa Barbara Adventure Company and Enjoy Cupcakes Team Up for a Tour.


The Food Page only seems to be cupcake obsessed this week, but when life gives me baked goods with scrumptious icing, I say, “Thanks, life.” The Santa Barbara Adventure Company (884-WAVE, sbadventureco.com) has realized not everyone is after a white-knuckled, paragliding, rock-climbing thrill. Some of us prefer life a bit sugared, and so they developed the Cupcake Tasting Tour as one more sideways way to sidle through Santa Ynez wine country. For there’s wine tasting as part of the package, sure, and a lovely luncheon picnic, but there’s also a stop at Enjoy Cupakes in Solvang (1661 Mission Dr., 451-0284, enjoycupcakes.com), where those on tour will taste six mini cupcakes, including two very much of the region: Pomegranate Mango Chardonnay and Chocolate Blackberry Syrah. The tour is available Thursday-Sunday. For a limited time, the price per person is only $125, and for that, you get wine tasting fees at three locations, cupcake tasting, shuttle service, deli lunch, and a knowledgeable guide.
