Do any of the wineries serve food?

Some do, but most of the wineries do not serve food. Most of the wineries do allow guests to bring in their own snacks to enjoy with their tasting. On weekends food trucks will often be parked along the Urban Wine Trail to sell food to hungry wine tasters.

The Urban Wine Trail is located right in downtown Santa Barbara so there are many restaurants located within walking distance of the tasting rooms on the trail.

Where are the vineyards?

The Urban Wine Trail is located in downtown Santa Barbara and therefore is not close to actual vineyard sites. Most of the wineries source their grapes from vineyards that are located about 45 minutes North-East of the city of Santa Barbara in Santa Ynez Valley, Sta. Rita Hills and Santa Maria.

Do any of the wineries host private events?
