Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Weeks will return Jan. 17-31 for its 12th consecutive year.
Restaurants will feature curated, chef-driven, three-course prix fixe menus at price points of $30, $40 or $50, plus tax and gratuity. Many area wineries and tasting rooms will also participate at various levels and price points, including offering two-for-one tastings, special tasting flights, and discounts on bottle purchases, according to a news release.
“After the events of the last two years, we’re all looking for meaningful ways to reunite or reconnect with family, friends, and loved ones,” said Shelby Sim, president and CEO of Visit the Santa Ynez Valley. “Food and wine make the perfect centerpiece around which to celebrate, and Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Weeks features the best of both in a wonderful setting that numerous media outlets have recently hailed as a must-visit in 2022.”
