California Wine Festival

Experience California’s Finest Vintages At Oceanfront Festivals Throughout SoCal

Santa Barbara, CA – California Wine Festival, Southern California’s premier wine festival event producer, is thrilled to announce its 2020 event schedule featuring four signature oceanfront wine festivals and a craft beer and barbeque event. 

California Wine Festival celebrates the vast wine offerings of the state, offering guests a unique opportunity to taste wines from every winemaking region in California all from a stunning outdoor venue with ocean views, live music, and delicious food. The event shines a light on rare and reserve vintages as well as fan-favorite pours from vineyards based in Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Paso Robles, Santa Barbara, Temecula and more. The two-day festival also highlights culinary education and exploration through one-on-one conversations with world-class professional chefs from leading local restaurants serving complimentary appetizers. Guests can also pair wine with samples of artisan cheeses, fresh-cut fruits, bread, olive oil, chocolate and more while listening to live music and enjoying the coastal California landscape. 

In addition to its signature wine-focused events, California Wine Festival also produces CA Brew & BBQ, an all-day celebration of beers and barbeque in Santa Barbara overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Guests will enjoy unlimited tastes from over 50 breweries, cideries and wineries while sampling tri-tip from Santa Barbara’s best restaurants competing for the title of Best BBQ.
