The Balkan Ghosts

Posted in Uncategorized on 2 March 2018 by stephen wayne

Our favorite Balkan wines (scroll through). From Slovenia a beautiful blend of Sauv Blanc, Muller Thurgau, and Welchriesling in a liter bottle complete with bottlecap ($15). A liter of smooth, bright Refosk also from Slovenia ($15). A gorgeous red from Georgia ($16.50). And a really incredible, neh, sensational red (cadarcā) from Romania ($20). Very exciting wines. We are open until 6pm. Don’t mind the construction out front. This beautification project is almost done. #renegadewines #santabarbara #winenerd #sb #sommlife #winetasting #wineporn #seesb #trustyourpalate #montecito #sbcwine #seriousjuice #winetime #winegeeks #winewednesday #funkzone #centralcalifornia #foodiesofsb #zagat
