Santa Barbara county is one of the world’s premier growing regions for Chardonnay & Pinot Noir—2 of the main grapes in traditional Champagne. And lucky for us, there are more than 70 sparkling wine and California champagne producers trying their hand at it.
Many don’t make enough quantity to have bubbles on a regular tasting list, but you can always ask at the winery. They love to share this bubbly labor of love! A good guideline: if you like the winery’s white wines, you’ll probably like their Sparkling Wine.

This is awesome! I am ALL about the bubbles. Just met your boyfriend tonight (celebrating Taylor’s birthday) and he told me about your blog!! SO so so great! And this map seriously rocks. My boyfriend and I are already planning our wine tasting trips. 🙂 Thanks and we’ll all have to do dinner sometime soon!
Hey Liz, Great map!! By the Fall of this year we will have our 2013 Brut Cuvée at Sanford Winery ready to pop! Cheers 🙂
