Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Weeks scheduled for Monday through Jan. 31
Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Weeks is returning for its 12th consecutive year from Monday through Jan. 31, bringing with it a variety of special prix fixe prices that showcase the region’s culinary bounty — and the perfect Santa Ynez Valley wines to pair with it.
As in years past, participating eateries will feature curated, chef-driven three-course prix fixe menus at prices of $30, $40 or $50 plus tax and gratuity.
Many area wineries and tasting rooms will also participate at various levels and prices, including offering two-for-one tastings, special tasting flights and discounts on bottle purchases.
“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.
“As Julia Child, who was no stranger to the Santa Ynez Valley, once said, ‘To be a good cook, you have to have a love of the good, a love of hard work and a love of creating.’ These qualities and more will be on full display from participating Santa Ynez Valley Restaurant Weeks restaurants, chefs, wineries and winemakers,” he added.
