Nerd Out on Santa Barbara WineIf you really want to geek out on wine, head to The Valley Project, where the staff will be thrilled to pour you tastes of chenin blanc and pinot noir, fill your head with info about local AVAs, and will even let you sniff soil samples from the region.
You'll walk away tipsy but wise, with neat little tidbits like, say, that a foggy marine layer can make for a more minerally chardonnay. And then, of course, there's that wildly Instagrammable mural made by the Los Angeles artist Elkpen.
