Last weekend I was itching to go on a mini adventure, so I grabbed my mom and went on a day trip to Santa Barbara. We went pretty much without an agenda and decided to see where the wind would take us.
It was a gorgeous day to be out. The sun was brightly shining and the sky was so clear and blue. We were taking a stroll along Sterns Wharf when we saw a big banner for wine tasting, and of course that got me really excited. A closer look revealed the “Deep Sea Tasting Room” right on the pier! With a name like that how could you say no? We decided to check it out and that turned out to be a great decision.
The wines were pretty good, but it was really the breathtaking view that made all the difference. The tasting room is on an elevated level which makes it feel like you’re on the upper deck of a cruise ship (all without the motion sickness and wobblyness of a real ship of course!). At $10 for 6 tastings this experience is a steal! Their award winning 2008 Deep Sea Chardonnay and 2008 Rancho Arroyo Grande Zinfandel were my personal favorites.
We spent the rest of the day walking around then watching the sunset. It was a lovely day and I wish I could do it all over again!
Next time you’re in Santa Barbara visit the Deep Sea Tasting Room! Hopefully you’ll have as wonderful of a time as I did 🙂Deep Sea Tasting Room 217 G Stearns Wharf Santa Barbara, CA 93101
