Oz and James’ Santa Barbara Wine Adventure, 3
Oz and James Santa Barbara Wine Tasting Tour
Famous wine writer Oz Clarke and his pal James May continue on their Santa Barbara wine tasting tour. In this episode, they explore the Santa Ynez Valley, a very popular area for a Santa Barbara wine tasting tour, and visit two Sideways hot spots: Fess Parker Winery and Vineyard, (a memorable stop on Miles and Jack’s Santa Barbara wine tasting tour where Miles douses himself with the spit bucket) for some of their Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Viognier; and the Hitching Post Restaurant (also a memorable spot in the film; it’s where Miles first meets Maya) for some steak, and more wine of course.
Not only do Oz and James enjoy their Santa Barbara wine tasting tour, they (especially James) get a kick out of meeting Fess Parker in person. Then Oz tries to teach James about using the spit bucket, with mixed results.
