My wife and I joined some friends in the Santa Ynez Valley, CA recently to attend the Harvest Dinner at the Ballard Inn & Restaurant in the charming township of Ballard, CA. Foxen Winery in collaboration with the Ballard Inn provided a wonderful dinner for approximately 45 attendees. If you have never visited the Santa Ynez Valley and enjoyed the 30 plus wine tasting opportunities you have missed out on some wonderful wine. Ballard Inn & Restaurant is an award winning inn and I agree 100%. There are fifteen guest rooms uniquely decorated reflecting the history of the valley. The restaruant is absolutely outstanding with the best breakfast bacan you will eat. Owner, Chef Budi KKazil, never fails to suprize and delight with his menu of great food and wine. Though there are many reasons to return to the Ballard Inn & Restaurant and we have, there is one for us that may seem odd. The Ballard Inn & Restaurant has a wrap around porch that reminds us of our childhoods. We look forward to ending the wonderful day of wine tasting, orchard visiting and great dinners, on the proch in the rocking chair listening to the "Night Music". My grandfather in the Ozarks of Missouri would sit with me, as a child, in the summer late evenings and together, as he called it, we would listen to the "Night Music".
