Do you like venturing off-the-eaten-path, meeting local chefs and restaurateurs, with day trips to vineyards to mingle with vintners and winemakers? Do you crave curated and bespoke experiences that make you a tastemaker among your friends? Dine Out Long Beach, the organizers of the city's premier Restaurant Week 2.0, have created quarterly Sip Trip's to the vineyards of Santa Barbara, Paso Robles, Temecula and Malibu. Each excursion includes one of Long Beach's fabulous chefs or restaurateurs who play host for the day getting to know you and sharing their culinary knowledge.
Join us for our next Sip Trip to Santa Barbara - Sunday, August 18. We'll go behind the gates of Michael Larner, vintner and winemaker of Larner Vineyards where he'll host us on a guided tasting of his award-winning wines. Next, we'll motor to nearby Los Olivos and the charming tasting room of Zinke Winery for another guided tasting and alfresco lunch. There'll be some free time to explore Los Olivos and its many shops and tasting rooms. Everyone will receive 2 bottles of wine to take home plus a $10 gift card to Michael's On Naples monthly Rooftop Wine Tasting. Let's do this!
