This is an intimate retreat, with only 20 spaces available in total. You do not need to bring (or have) a dog to join, but all activities, including food and wine pairing, transportation, and seminar, are dog friendly. We do require, however, that you like both: DOGS and WINE, to ensure everyone feels comfortable.

We will be stationed at a the Kimpton Goodland boutique hotel in Santa Barbara’s sister city Goleta. Only 2 hours from Los Angeles, this under the radar chic hotel is unlike any other. Wake up and practice yoga in your room, experience SoCal coastal cuisine at the fantastic restaurant and lobby bar, have a glass of wine by the outdoor fireplace with your dog, or have fun at the beach less than 10 minutes away.
On Saturday, a large, specially repurposed bus will take us from the hotel for a full day of wine tasting in the scenic Santa Ynez Valley, to villages of Buellton, Los Olivos, and Los Alamos (with a stop in Solvang).
