We know our Members love the good life; this is why our Member Wine Events have always been a staple of our Events program. We’ve given Members behind-the-scenes wine country experiences in legendary locations including Napa Valley, Sonoma and Oregon. This year, for the first time ever, we’re bringing Members to Santa Barbara, California for the ultimate three-night food and wine VIP getaway. Just 18 Members will accompany us as we visit some of the region’s cult wineries for private tastings and perfectly paired dinners.
Many of our winery visits include an opportunity to meet the owner or head winemaker, taste grapes off the vine, and sample wines in different maturation stages straight from the barrel. The October dates overlap with harvest, which means the smell of wine will be in the air and the vineyards will be full of action. Keeping with the cool California surfer spirit, our guests will stay in designer luxury Airstream trailers at Ocean Mesa Campground at El Capitan, the premier campground on the beautiful California Central Coast. This is a fun way to stay close to wine country and also enjoy the Airstream experience without having to do all the driving! And you’ll have access to a GMC Yukon Denali for a quick trip into Santa Barbara or a morning coastline drive.
