Get Inside Urban Wine


Even hard-core wine aficionados find it hard to stay on top of the explosive growth of downtown Santa Barbara’s Urban Wine Trail, so there’s no better chance to explore and get educated on the latest than this weekend’s Summer Celebration. A $150 ticket gets you an all-access pass that includes a passport to sip at 23 wineries all weekend (May 30-June 1); a seat at the educational seminar on Saturday morning at the Wine Cask, where 10 winemakers will share their insights; and a ticket to the grand tasting on Saturday night at the Carrillo Ballroom, where art from Youth Interactive and a Unity Shoppe benefit auction will also go down. See urbanwinetrailsb.com.
