The oenophiles we’re out in force when Grassini vineyards opened its new 1,400-sq.-ft. tasting room at the historic El Paseo.

The 104-acre vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley was planted in 2002 and mayor Cathy Murillo cut a ribbon to mark the new opening.

Among the guests quaffing the vino and noshing on the bounteous canapés from the Wine Cask, just a tiara’s toss away, were Katie Grassini, Thomas Rollerson, Gwen Stauffer, and Kathy Janega-Dykes.
