You’ve heard of an oxygen bar, a brow bar, a dive bar, but have you been to a bubbles bar? Now’s your chance! Santa Barbara County’s first ever Sparkling Wine Bar opens this weekend at Flying Goat Cellars Tasting Room on Sunday, April 21 from 11 a.m–4 p.m.
At this boutique winery located in the Lompoc Wine Ghetto at 1520 East Chestnut Court, you can sip your way through a flight of four Goat Bubbles (a sentence I’m sure you’ve never heard before), sparkling wines all crafted in-house and in the traditional méthode champenoise, including Rosé, Crémant, Blanc de Blancs and Blanc de Noirs. Goat Bubbles, because “A Toast is Not Just for Breakfast!,” is so delicious that the only vintage bottle submitted to Wine Spectator won 89 points. You’ll give your taste buds an extra treat as each of the sparking wines is made from a different vineyard in our surrounding areas, including Clos Pepe Vineyard, Solomon Hills Vineyard and Sierra Madre Vineyard.
During the opening, you can also taste Flying Goat Cellar’s Pinot Noirs and Pinot Grises, discuss the sparkling wine process and learn how to open a bottle of champagne with a saber—that infamous party trick you’ve been dying to master.
It will be a wine tasting event unlike any other, so don’t miss out!
