Our Journey will begin Saturday morning from Ferrari Westlake, departing by backroads through Fillmore, Santa Paula, and Ojai along foothills above Santa Barbara to Santa Ynez Valley for a warm reception at Tanya and Tony Vincent’s elegant winery.
For lunch we will move on to Leonardo’s Ristorante near Solvang Village. Afterwards, we will visit a private motorcycle collection in the charming Danish Village, as well as having an option to enjoy fresh-baked pastries and unique gift items.
Dinner at Bacara that night will be held in a private wine cellar, away from the restaurant noise. While recently attending Justin Winery’s annual society Gala in Paso Robles, Justin Baldwin agreed to provide us his great Cabernet Justin Wines for this dinner. I will also be bringing Sauvignon Blanc and Muscato wines, both made by Justin.
Our private screening that night will feature Steve McQueen’s LeMans - a classic racing film of all time.
Following a night’s stay, we will depart the Bacara Ritz-Carlton Resort together Sunday noon for a private luncheon high above Santa Barbara at the Five Star Belmond El Encanto Resort. It will be a memorable experience. Ten rooms have been reserved, an option to extend your great weekend at their elegant resort now owned by Orient Express. I encourage you to reserve your stay that evening at the Resort for much reduced rate of only $395 plus tax and charges. Staying in spacious rooms among lush grounds and new spa, it will be a way to end this great weekend enjoying dinner, perhaps breakfast alone or with friends before heading back home Monday.
This two-day event will be priced slightly higher reflecting: increased hotel rates, a private Wine Room for dinner Saturday night, an elegant farewell luncheon at Belmond El Encanto Sunday afternoon and general enhancement of the event.
Registration is open. Due to the limited rooms available at the Bacara Ritz-Carlton and Belmond El Encanto Resort, please secure your reservation at earliest convenience.
Event Registration Limited to 20 Rooms at Bacara Resort and Optional 10 at the Belmond El Encanto Resort
