The Taste of UCSB Beer, Food, and Wine Festival is a premier event of the annual All Gaucho Reunion Weekend, with over 50 Gaucho chefs, brewers, caterers, and vintners bringing the best Central Coast cuisine and beverages. This benefit event for the UCSB Alumni Scholarship Fund also featured live music and the chance to meet various UCSB department representatives. 

The 2019 Taste of UCSB brought lively music, delicious food, and exceptional beer and wine. Most of all, it brought old and new friends together.

Sample IPA’s, Sauvignon Blanc’s and Porters from fellow Gaucho brewers and vintners. Come sip some of your local favorite or try something new and discover your next favorite beverage!
