Have you ever wondered how Santa Barbara County wines would fare in head-to-head competition with wines from Napa Valley?
Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Café will have the first-ever Santa Barbara vs. Napa Valley “Blind” Wine Dinner on Friday, October 7. Starting at 6:30 p.m., Executive Chef Chris Joslyn will prepare a gourmet five-course meal highlighting the fresh, local ingredients of the Central California Coast—each course paired with two wines—one from Santa Barbara County and one from the Napa Valley.
The wines will be served “blind” and not identified until the end of the evening.
