Santa Barbara

 Vineyards are amazingly magical places, and Santa Barbara holds some of our favorites.

Maybe it's the fresh air, or the rolling hills, or most likely all the wine, but something about traveling to a vineyard just stops time. 

Having lived in LA for several years, you don't find many times that you can sit outside, breathing in fresh air, and listening to silence. Yet, just a short drive outside of town, you can be transported into a different world. 

Because of our upcoming move, a few friends and I decided to take a last minute trip. We rented a little house on AirBNB.com (which was ABSOLUTELY amazing, and we'll be using the site all the time), and stopped at a few tasting rooms off State St, as well as a few vineyards outside of town.

AVA Santa Barbara is our favorite in town (We are wine club members there).

And Foley is a winner in my book on every single tasting. Their wine is next level. They also own Lincourt, which has J's all time favorite Chardonnay.

It was so much fun that I was asleep by 10:30pm every night, and I loved it. 

PS how cute is my fiancé behind the wine bar?
