WINE & WAVES
Tapping two rising trends — Stand Up Paddle and Santa Barbara’s urban-industrial wine tasting – The Fess Parker salutes spring with a ready-to-wear getaway that is walk-friendly and wine-centric. The package includes newly-renovated guestroom accommodations at the AAA four-diamond beachfront resort with value-added two-for-one stand up paddle board or kayak rental at Santa Barbara Sailing Center. After a morning at sea, stroll to the Funk Zone, an eclectic sub-culture of artisan shops, art galleries, hip eateries, micro-brews and 14+ wine venues set in an industrial area two blocks from the beach. Glass in hand, the SIP & SUP package provides visitors with value-added two-for-one tastings at seven venues including Area 5.1, Blair Fox Cellars, Carr Winery, Grassini Family Vineyards, Riverbench Winery, Corks n’ Crowns and Jaffurs Wine Cellars.
