Join local artist Kathy Schorr tonight and view her gorgeous handpainted silks that will soften our walls for the next month. We'll also be drinking five really great wines from the Babcock winery in the Santa Ynez Valley with Scott Howett from Mystic Vine. Also Chef Dan Esses' 3 Muses tapas plates available from $5-$12. This event is free and open to the public.
Central Coast winemaker Bryan Babcok has been getting lots of recognition lately as the Los Angeles Times named him as one of the "Ten Best Winemakers of the Year", he was also named by this influential daily as "Most Courageous Winemaker of the Year" for his daring style. The prestigious James Beard Foundation chose Bryan as one of the "Top Ten Small Production Winemakers in the World," the only American to receive the title!
Located in the Santa Ynez Valley, the Babcock family has owned and operated the winery for over 30 years. Pretty small production here, ranging anywhere from 300 cases to 5000 at the most. They offer an excellent range of wines and to show you the scope of what they make we'll be tasting five of them in our Friday Free For All this week. Definitely worth a look, what have you got to lose, it's free!
