SANTA BARBARA

CALIFORNIA

Season 1, Episode 2

Santa Barbara is my favorite California wine region. Dollar for dollar, nothing competes, especially if you love cool climate wines like Pinot Noir and elegant, restrained Chardonnay. Our restaurant on this episode has a spot close to my heart: it was the place I envisioned for V is for Vino when I came up with the idea years ago, and doggone-it, I got it done. Find out why Santa Barbara is the getaway for the celebs on this episode of V is for Vino.

DOWNTOWN SANTA BARBARA

Downtown Santa Barbara is about 45 minutes from the wine growing region of Santa Barbara, and is home to a lot of the tastings rooms, shopping, restaurants, bars, and hotels in the area. Use this as a home base to visit the rest of the region!

The first winery we ever shot for V is for Vino is one of the best! J Wilkes tasting room is in downtown Santa Barbara, but they also offer exclusive tours of the vineyard in the valley if you prefer something more VIP!
