The Foley Food & Wine Society has created one of the great wine experiences along California’s Central Coast at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara.

Located near the front entrance of the resort, the tasting room is open and airy with wood beams, cut stone pillars, gorgeous display cabinetry, and an elegant bar. Patrons are invited to enjoy the daily offerings seated at private tables and communal couches or standing at the bar. The flight menus change monthly, offering a unique and interesting wine tasting experience for your enjoyment.

The tasting room’s selection includes more than 70 wines from the Foley Family portfolio of wineries including Kuleto, Chalk Hill, Sebastiani, Lancaster, Firestone, Foley Johnson, and Merus, to name just a few. A personalized concierge service is available to arrange exclusive tours and tastings at nearby Firestone, Lincourt, and Foley Estate wineries. The concierge can also schedule private tastings, receptions, blending seminars, sensory seminars, food and wine pairing exercises, and other educational experiences.

Guests are welcome to purchase wines by the glass or bottle to be enjoyed in the Bacara courtyard or to have shipped to their home.

We hope to resume Tasting Flights soon.  Please check back in for updates.
