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.
