If you’re looking for a perfect way to kick off a getaway to the Santa Barbara region, this is it! Whether you come for the day, the weekend or longer you’ll find no shortage of ways to relax and enjoy yourself. Join the Santa Barbara-Ventura Haas Alumni Network as two Haas Alumni and seasoned wine professionals introduce you to their favorite wines at a tasting in the beautiful outdoor setting of the Alma Rosa Winery and Vineyards.
Debra Eagle, EWMBA 86, General Manager of Alma Rosa and Larry Schaffer, BS 86, owner of Tercero Wines, will lead the tasting. Alma Rosa is focused on the production of Chardonnay, Pinot and Rhone varities from the cool climate Sta. Rita Hills appellation. Tercero focuses on small lot, handcrafted wines from the vineyards of Santa Barbara County.
During the tasting, Debra and Larry will share their special wine selections as well as their vast knowledge of the wine industry. You’ll also have an opportunity to take an optional walking tour (uphill) of the Alma Rosa vineyards.
After the tasting, follow your own agenda. You may want to head five minutes up the road to the Danish village of Solvang to visit the shops, restaurants and other attractions, such as the Alma Rosa Tasting Room. Or you might consider continuing your wine tasting adventure in Santa Ynez wine country, including a stop at the Tercero Wine Tasting Room. Hiking, golfing and a visit to the Santa Barbara beaches are other options. To help you plan your visit, Debra and Larry will share their personal favorite sights, activities, restaurants and hotels in the area.
