This week I share with you Samantha Bearman whom is involved in social media and public relations of food and wine and other areas, but also is a freelance photographer, writer and lover of travel. She shared with me her summer experiences living in Santa Barbara. Enjoy!
Santa Barbara evenings in June, July and August are truly the epitome of summer nights. The weather is warm but the coastal breeze keeps the temperature between a cool 65-75 degrees. The city plays host to tourists both from within California and the USA to those hailing from Europe and South America. In an effort to enhance the community spirit and showcase all of the delicacies that Santa Barbara has to offer, First Thursday was born. Within the Santa Barbara Public Market the sleek, modern, glass hosting room was filled with a variety of people, couples, singles, young professionals starting their night after a hard work day, and those already enjoying their summer in Santa Barbara.
Morello wine tasting was the first table to greet patrons as they were offered up to 5 wines to sample. The sommelier said that he liked to see people holding some wine because it made them speak slower and listen better, thus he was quite attentive to the needs of everyone in the room. He even tailored the wine tasting to several patrons who preferred only to taste white and he let them top off their glasses several times with their wine of choice.
