Coinky Dink??

So I got the notice today for the upcoming wine dinner at Park Ave and it just so happens That it reflects on my whole trip last weekend...We visited Gainey was nice..I think we are gonna pass on this one though......
Gainey Wine Dinner
Our menu for this evening will feature foods of Santa Barbara County
Thursday May 14, 2009
6:45 p.m

We welcome Dan Gainey to Park Ave.
The Gainey family farming philosophy and the history of this property dating back to its farming days as Ronnenberg Dairy are pretty similar, and they have come full circle today here at our restaurant, “high quality and long term consistency” two goals that we strive to meet daily and that are key to the success and growth of our business going forward into our fifth year.

This year the Gainey family celebrates their 47th year of farming and ranching in Santa Barbara County. Since the beginning, it has always been the land and its potential that has guided the family. In 1962, Dan C. and his son Dan J. Gainey purchased an 1800 acre ranch on the eastern end of the Santa Ynez Valley. With over 1000 acres of rangeland devoted to cattle, 600 acres of farmland, 100 acres of Arabian horses facilities and 100 acres of vineyards, the Gainey Ranch was and still is the largest diversified farming operation in the valley.
