My husband and I drive out and did some wine tasting one afternoon. We stopped at Rusack as it was voted one of the best in Sanata Barbara. It was mid week and not too busy. It's a small family run business and. It was very interesting talking with the server and learning not only about the wines but about the vineyards and history of the owners. We did two tastings for 15 dollars each . Some wines we preferred and just simply poured what we didn't enjoy away. Crackers were placed on the bar to help with the tastings. It's useful to take a bottle of water to clear the palette between wines. Especially the whites and reds. We bought a white and a red and were able to take the glasses away as a memento. I love wineries and also bought a Sauvignon blanc scented candle to remind me of the wine and a coaster. It was a lovely afternoon and a trip to solvang followed. The wines are expensive in California amd more so than new world and European. Any decent Californian wine doesn't manage to leave the country and only certain amounts of bottles are produced from each harvest. Rusack have vines on Catalina island and they are flown over for winemaking .
