Celebrate Dad’s Day Aboard X Wine Railroad With A Tasting Trip From L.A. To Santa Barbara’s Happy Canyon Vineyard

With Mother’s Day in the rearview mirror, it is now time to start planning a celebration where dads can behave dad-ly. X Wine Railroad still has space available on its June 19th excursion from Los Angeles Union Station to Santa Barbara’s Happy Canyon Vineyard that includes a guided tour and tasting with winemaker Sean D. Pitts.  The cost is $399 per person and reservations can be made online here!

Happy Canyon Vineyard

Happy Canyon Vineyard is a family-owned and operated estate vineyard and boutique winery known for its award-winning Bordeaux varietals. The Barrack family blends their love of wine with their passion for Polo, evidenced on each wine label, and boasts a pair of regulation-sized Polo fields just a grape-toss from the vineyard. Guests aboard X Wine Railroad will get to personally taste the wines with family member and winemaker, Sean D. Pitts, who will be available to answer questions and explain the history and winemaking process of Happy Canyon Vineyard.

“We’re very excited to bring a select group of wine enthusiasts to Happy Canyon Vineyard and meet with Sean,” said Dianne David, president of the female-owned and operated X Wine Railroad. “The estate is teeming with ponies, Polo and great wine and seems like the perfect place to toast dad on Father’s Day Eve.”

Dinner and any wine purchases are at the discretion of each guest.
