Santa Barbara, the land of wine, women, and Sean – Connery, that is. In an Aston Martin. Driving through wine country. Ahhhh, such is the life I lead. Well, sort of. This past weekend, Alexandra tasted wine, drove an Aston Martin, toured El Paseo and the Funk Zone, and even got in a beach walk.
Whole Foods in Santa Barbara held a One Wine Spring Release 2014 event, and I was invited. One Wine is a collaborative effort between the So. Cal. Whole Foods markets and specific Central California winemakers. The wines selected to be part of the One Wine label are not only affordable, but also produced locally, by hand, in small batches, and support the local economy and land stewardship.
