It’s Fiesta time again in Santa Barbara, and that means the city comes alive with flamenco dancing, mariachi music, and mercados in celebration of its Spanish/Mexican roots. In addition to revisiting history, revelers can participate in one of Santa Barbara’s newer attractions-wine tasting. At the Courthouse Sunken Gardens on Saturday, July 28, from 4-7 p.m., there will be 30 well-known boutique wines to try, along with gourmet food and live music. If you taste a vino you just have to have, no worries-all the wines will be available for purchase. Tickets are $55 per person in advance and $65 on the day of the event. If you want to get the party started earlier, check out the pre-event reception at Elements Restaurant from 2:30-4 p.m., which includes sampling of rare/reserve wines. Tickets are $80 per person in advance. Call the Arlington Ticket Agency at 963-4408 for more information.
