Wine Line: Odd Lots and Wine Thoughts

The navigator and I recently spent a day tasting wine on the Santa Barbara Urban Wine Trail. There are more than 20 tasting rooms, all within blocks of downtown and the beach. Twelve are located in what’s called the Funk Zone. This is a former industrial area that has converted tire shops, gas stations and old surf shops into wineries and tasting rooms. The Zone has a cool/funky vibe and includes the Santa Barbara Winery, the oldest in the county. After several stops in the Funk Zone, we walked downtown. It’s an easy walk on State Street with beautiful scenery, great restaurants, shops and more tasting rooms. At the end of the day, we hopped on the free city shuttle that return us to our car. It was a perfect day of wine tasting in Santa Barbara. Forget the car and walk the Santa Barbara Urban Wine Trail. For a cool map and more information, go to www.urbanwinetrailsb.com.
