A Santa Barbara County wine tasting program — the Wine Country Days Passport — is now available to the public. The coupon book is valid for one complimentary tasting at 17 wineries.

It’s available for purchase online starting at $75 and will be valid through Dec. 31, 2022.

Wineries in the passport include Brick Barn Wine Estate, SAMsARA Wine Co., Grimm’s Bluff, and many more. Tasting experiences range from beachside lounges to production facility tours and wines out of the barrel.

The operation is an effort by Wine Club Marketing, Inc. to increase tasting room visitors to local wineries following a challenging pandemic year for small businesses.

“Wineries get the much-needed visitors to their tasting room and potential wine club members and bottle purchases, and visitors get complimentary tastings at some of the best wineries in the county,” Marketing Manager Cynthia Kahn said. “It’s an incredible way to support the community and get everyone back out there after a tough couple of years.”
