You don’t have to travel to Santa Barbara to sample the famed wine region’s newest and most up-and-coming offerings. They’ll be well-represented this month at wineLA’s 12th Annual Stars of Santa Barbara at The Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel.
Long before the movie “Sideways,” the wine lovers’ site was telling its audience that Santa Barbara winemakers are producing some of the best wines in the world. For this fundraiser, they’ve gathered the “best of the best” and the “brand standards” among Santa Barbara wineries for unlimited tastings, gourmet appetizers and a silent auction benefiting the T.J. Martell Foundation, the music industry’s largest nonprofit funding innovative medical research focused on finding cures for leukemia, cancer and AIDS.
Two packages are offered: general admission with 7 p.m. entrance, $125 per person; VIP with 6:30 p.m. entrance, $200 per person. Prices will go up as the event fills to capacity.
