Greetings from the Sta. Rita Hills,
Make plans for August 18th - 21st to visit our wineries and tasting rooms for four days of festivities. All events have limited ticket sales to ensure an intimate food and wine experience.
We are still working on details but we have had so many people ask about tickets we thought we would go ahead and put this out there. No matter what, you know it will be a great event!!
Tickets are very limited and on sale now as individual events, or as a Wine and Fire Weekend package. Our Weekend package includes all four events plus a complimentary weekend Passport. Our La Paulee Dinner will honor Rick Longoria as 2022 Vintner of the Year.
Limited tickets to our Wine and Fire Grand Tasting at La Purisima Mission are on sale. These will sell out quickly so order now so you don't miss out on this very special evening.
In the meantime, our tasting rooms, hotels, and restaurants are ready to welcome you and show you some Sta. Rita Hills hospitality!
