What is the Santa Barbara County Wine Futures Tasting you ask? It is the premier event providing first access to the most sought after releases from the upcoming vintage…at 20% off retail! Over 50 wineries will be pouring from 12pm to 4pm, with winemakers on-site to discuss the vintage and tell stories.

Historic producers like Au Bon Climat and Qupe are confirmed to attend, alongside upcoming stars like Tyler, Sillix, Zotovich, Tatomer, Habit, and Wenzlau.

Critics, collectors, and sommeliers nationwide have fast become aware of the quality, terroir driven wines being produced in Santa Barbara County. Further, the inaugural SBC Wine Futures Tasting event, and Les Marchands’ commitment to spread the word about the wines in their backyard, has gained attention from the LA Times, Food & Wine Magazine, Forbes, as well as being voted Wine Bar of the Year in the Imbibe 75.
