About Sipping Santa Barbara
Visiting a wine region for the first time is exciting but can also be a daunting experience. It can be challenging to remember and make sense of the appellations, geographical characteristics, soil types, and climate differences. On top of that, wine lovers need to consider how to spend their limited amount of time sifting through the many wines and wineries.
This book is meant to be an introduction to the wines of Santa Barbara County. It will provide the pertinent information to maximize your time in Santa Barbara. Through this book, the readers will be armed with information to get them started on exploring the wines and identify the types of wines that they might enjoy. From there, they’ll be able to branch out on their own and create their self-guided wine tour in Santa Barbara County.
What You Will Learn
Antonio and Jeni Moretti are the proprietors of Moretti Wine Co. and the wine shop called Taste of Sta. Rita Hills, which doubles up as a tasting room for the winery. A visit to their wine shop is a real treat as Antonio and Jeni are passionate about sharing their wine knowledge. Also, the shop offers a wide selection of wines by the glass and most of these wines are from elusive wineries that don’t have a tasting room or are hard to make an appointment with. We recommend that you make this place your first wine-tasting stops in Santa Barbara in order to receive a personal orientation to the wines from this region!
Thanks to Antonio and Jeni, who have shown tremendous support for this book, Taste of Sta Rita Hills will be offering a free wine tasting for one person with every copy of Sipping Santa Barbara purchased. Please show your book to claim this gift.
