Lunch at Au Bon Climat/Qupé

< Back


Jim Clendenen will be cooking an Asian-inspired lunch for us today at Au Bon Climat/Qupe winery. Bob Lindquist (Qupe) and Richard Sanford (Alma Rosa) will join us to give a brief history of the Santa Barbara County wine business. All of the vintners from the Bien Nacido tasting will also join the luncheon – all wines to be served family style.
