What could be more fun than a wine country picnic in the Santa Barbara wine country? We love packing a picnic lunch and then heading on the wine trail to the vineyards and tasting rooms. One of life’s greatest pleasures is to view the vines while sipping wine and feasting on some deli foods. This is a list of Santa Barbara wine country best picnic and deli spots. Don’t forget – when picnicking at a winery common courtesy means purchasing a glass or bottle of wine from the tasting room.
