Paint in the Vineyards

Located about 45 minutes from downtown Santa Barbara, the Santa Ynez Valley is home to some of the most beautiful vistas, world-renowned vineyards, and world-class wines in California. We invite you to join us, grab a glass of wine and a paintbrush, and meet us in the vineyard for an unforgettable event. Whether you're here in "the Valley" or driving up from Santa Barbara for the day, we promise you an experience like no other that engages all of your senses.
