What goes best with mountain air, fresh breezes, panoramic vistas and no sign of modern conveniences for miles?  The company of those you love most, who are dearest to you — and bringing those people together with an incredibly delicious, fresh menu designed to complement the environment.  Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse is nestled back in – you guessed it- Figueroa Mountain and requires guests to arrive and depart by shuttle.  One of the most unique features of this incredible wine country mountain venue is that a few guests can actually stay the night there and have the whole mountain lodge experience right in Santa Barbara’s wine country.

One of the things we loved most about this menu is that in addition to a succulent tri-tip marinated and grilled to perfection (nothing says “country” more than a good cut of delicious beef) , they offered their guests one of Southern California’s most popular culinary treats as a “station”: check out the delicious ceviche station in our menu highlights below!

This wedding offered country goodness and a warm, intimate setting for friends and family to gather and celebrate this newlywed’s first steps in their new life together.
