Speed Tasting and Lunch with a Winemaker
August 18th 10:00am- 2:00pm

Hilliard Bruce Winery
2097 Vineyard View Lane, Lompoc

Get up close and personal in the Sta. Rita Hills. This year’s Wine and Fire Saturday morning event will offer you the unique opportunities to not only taste great wines but share your table with 8 different winemakers.

Similar to speed dating, winemakers will take a turn to sit at your table, pour their wine and share the experiences of their winemaking journey while engaging in conversation with you and your table mates.

Here’s how it works:
There will be tables with 10 -12 guests seated at each table. Each table will have a winemaker seated at your table, pouring 1 -2 wines. The winemaker will present their wines, discuss the vineyard the wine is made from, tell their story and then open up the conversation for a roundtable discussion. At the end of 10 minutes, a different winemaker will rotate to your table and the process begins again. Your group’s personal sommelier will guarantee a lively discussion and engaging wine talk.

This is a great way to make new friends while learning about the wines of the Sta. Rita Hills! A wood-fired lunch will follow the tasting.
