After LA, we drove up to Santa Barbara to stay at the Bacara Resort. In November we won a 3 day, 2 night trip to stay here by liking a facebook page as a giveaway on one of my favorite blogs. Can you even believe that? Ryan and I never win anything, but this past year has been particularly lucky for us. This was my favorite part of the trip because it solely was for relaxing and drinking wine. How could you not love that?! When we checked in we had two bottles of Le Grand Courtage champage and a stocked picnic basket from Le Grand Courtage waiting for us to enjoy on the beach. How adorable is that?! Not only did they pay for us to stay at this amazing resort, but they had an adorable, romantic picnic ready for us! After we checked out our room, we basically skipped down to the beach to watch the sunset with a glass of wine in hand.
The following day we went on a private wine tasting tour for our anniversary. (Our anniversary is beginning to have a theme…) A sommelier drove us around to six vineyards to taste the freshest wine you’ll ever have in your life. Mid-day they set up another picnic overlooking one of the vineyards and it was so incredibly romantic. This was one of my favorite days… maybe ever. I feel so lucky to have been able to experience this with Ryan.
