Time to Valen-whine

Santa Ynez Wineries Package Deal, and Wheels

You have to take some days off to do this one, but your loved one, and our lovely wine country, deserve it. So take two days to enjoy the special Wine Around the Santa Ynez Valley. Sure, you can go taste there on your own, but this deal means exclusive wine and barrel tastings, a chance to meet and greet with the winemakers themselves, and then both entertainment and gourmet munchies to match with the fine wine from Bridlewood Estate Winery, Fess Parker Vineyard & Winery, and Foley Estate Vineyard & Winery. Best of all, taking part means deluxe transportation between stops, so you don’t even have to be sure to spit so as to avoid DUIing. You even get to customize your tour during the two days, giving you time to rest and relax as you see fit, at a hotel you choose, so that gets to fit (your budget), too. Is there a more fun opportunity than getting to pinot your loved one all over again on February 14 and 15? See
