SANTA BARBARA WINE FESTIVAL SPOTLIGHTS LOCAL WINERIES                                                                                                          Photos and story by Bonnie Carroll

The wine festival by the sea in Santa Barbara was a huge success, and featured unique beverages, oils, food products from a variety of purveyors. Wineries being represented included some of the best in California and the nation, and the juice of the grape was flowing freely.

July 15-17 Visitors were invited to take samples and enter a competition for various goods and trips. Music filled the air to add to the enjoyment, and a line up of musical groups kept the feeling going. Fresco offered food samples that were delicious.
