November 12, 2017  |  11:00 am to 4:30 pm   Pioneers of Santa Barbara Open House at Ken Brown Wines

Whether you are attending the Pioneers of Santa Barbara Tasting on November 11 or not, please join us in our tasting room for a special Open House commemorating the history of Santa Barbara wine country. What better way to celebrate than with the release of our 2015 Pinot Noir from the Sanford & Benedict Vineyard, the birthplace of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation! This iconic vineyard planted in 1971 was what brought Ken to Santa Barbara County and inspired him to devote his career to unlocking the great potential of our region. Ken will be on hand to share memories and answer questions, and will bring an older vintage or two from his personal cellar for a taste of the past!  Barrel samples of the 2017 vintage will offer a peak at the future! Light selection of cheeses and crackers be served as well. No reservations required.
