Five days of savory flavors and sensory explorations are promised during the 21st annual “Taste of Solvang”, set for March 13 through 17, 2013, in (where else, Road Trips Foodies), Solvang, California (map).

Events begin March 13, 2013 at the Solvang Village Farmers Market (First Street between Mission and Copenhagen Drive) with the Chef Walk & Demos series between 2 and 6 p.m. Featured chefs will include Chef David Cecchini, Cecco Ristorante; Master Chef Norbert Schulz, Mirabelle Restaurant and Chef Heather Rae Hovey, Hadsten House Restaurant.

From March 13 through 15, 2013, Taste of Solvang Luxury Santa Ynez Valley Wine Tours will be offered including taste stops at four wineries, gourmet picnic lunch and souvenir wine glass. Special pricing and itineraries will be offered by Grapeline Wine Tours; Serenity Limousine & Sedans; and Stagecoach Tours.

Three “Taste of Solvang Passport” events return for the weekend. First, 7 to 9 p.m. March 15, 2013, is a Dessert Reception and live jazz music at the Veterans Memorial Hall, 1765 Mission Drive, Solvang.

The Solvang Wine & Beer Walk takes place from 5 to 8 p.m. March 16 and again from noon to 4 p.m. March 17, 2013, with a dozen downtown tasting rooms pouring their vintages into the souvenir glass.

Taste of Solvang is a rain or shine event but since Solvang means “sunny field” in Danish, chances of rain are marginal.

Needless to say, advance ticket purchases are highly recommended.

The yummy food fest has been presented by the Solvang Conference & Visitors Bureau since 1993 with sponsorship support from the Santa Ynez Valley Hotel Association.
