Santa Barbara North

When it comes to wine country, closer is better.

Head toward the hills. The stunning Santa Ynez Mountains serve as sort of the de facto border between Santa Barbara’s north and south counties. While the more popular rental choices tend to have visitors gravitating toward the beaches, true oenophiles know the best place to stay for a quick and easy escape. Santa Barbara North is home to some of the area’s most expansive estates, all about a half hour drive to wine country. And we doubt there will be any whining when you choose to vacation here with InvitedHome. Learn More

The Restaurant Guy's Santa Barbara Recommendations
November 10, 2016 The A-team at Good Bar has put their best fall foot forward, offering half a dozen sippers for everyone. Sweet Corn is the winning ingredient in PILGRIMAGE SOUTH, a blend of Herradura Reposado, sweet corn, creme de cacao, fresh lime, chocolate ...bitters and egg white. The result is a colorful and velvety rich drink worth coming in for. The funky and fresh EJECTION SEAT consists of High West double rye, Damoiseau 110 Rhum, Amaro Lucano, green tea pineapple gomme, fresh lime, cinnamon syrup, and tiki bitters, while the GUN FOR HIRE awakens your palate with black cardamom infused Bombay Sapphire, Creme de Noyeaux, cardamaro aromatized wine, sasparilla and angostura bitters.

Wines of Santa Barbara County
March 16, 2017 Wow, with the recent rains and the start of the growing season nearly here you can see the vinyards getting ready for spring. We wanted to know about some of the wines that are made in Santa Barbara County, but, there aren't just some... there are a ...lot. So, we used a great website put together by the Wine Institute of California that lists wines in our area, shows maps and gives great insite on the varietals. You can see more information and see more great wine maps, guides, and stories on their website discovercaliforniawines.com (see less)
