Wine Not?

This weekend, head northward to the Santa Ynez Valley for Winter Wine Down, a seasonal wine event that draws many different local wineries together to compete for the guests’ most-liked vino. And while they’re sampling vintages, guests will also enjoy food from local restaurants, which will be competing in a simultaneous culinary contest. All the pleasures of the palate are accompanied by live music from area performers. To top it all off, all proceeds from the Wine Down will benefit the local chapter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The event runs from noon to 4 p.m. at Roblar Winery (3010 Roblar Ave., Santa Ynez). Tickets are $60-$100; ages 21+. Call 560-7651 for more info.
