The white-stuccoed villas of Bacara Resort & Spa, atop an enviable beachfront bluff on the Gaviota Coast, have long been a luxury overnight destination. Now the owners are bringing their own priority—wine—into the mix and drawing daytrippers as well. The Foley Wine Tasting Room, which opened last year in the courtyard off the entry circle, pours a rotating lineup of bottles from Foley Family Wines, including ones from Kuleto and Lancaster Estates. Bacara has introduced the Meet the Masters series, which brings in notable wine-, sake-, and tequila-makers for pairings. The Masters dinners are held in the vaulted, brick-walled cellar dining room, which has a through-the-glass view of Miró Restaurant’s 12,000-bottle collection.
