Santa Barbara & Beyond



The last session in the program presents a dynamic overview of this exceptional region that produces of some of the most desired wines of the world. Proximity to the Pacific Ocean, varied mesoclimates, and a long growing season make a great combination. Conclude your knowledge with being able to understand and articulate the importance of the Humboldt Current, the Coriolis Effect, and Transverse Range. Santa Barbara County is much more than Sideways! Going beyond Santa Barbara learn about California wine’s southern origins and the many small AVAs and producers of the South Coast. 

This workshop is part of the California Wine Appellation Specialist® program. As part of this workshop, you'll taste 6-8 wines related to the curriculum.
