LOS ALAMOS, CA, Saturday November 19, 2022—Inside Wine Santa Barbara (IWSB) is a not-for-profit Meetup wine tasting group that has grown to over 1,700 members and organized almost 90 wine events featuring noted winemakers from Santa Barbara County, Napa and Santa Cruz. Co-founder and co-organizer Tama Takahashi is one of the few women of color working in wine in Santa Barbara County. Co-organizer Meridith Moore started the Food + Wine Festival at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. Inside Wine Santa Barbara is open to anyone 21 years+. It has members in Los Angeles and Ventura as well as the local area and the dinner is early, at 3 pm, to accommodate travel to Los Alamos.
This gala dinner is for anyone who is interested in learning more about winemaking, food and wine pairing and about the terroir for wine and food in Santa Barbara County.
Besides wine tastings with winemakers like Randall Graham, Brian Babcock, Fred Brander, Richard Sanford and more, IWSB has held wine seminars with Master Sommeliers Richard Betts, Brian McClintic, and Eric Railsback, organized a wine tasting/travel weekend to Paso Robles and held "The Feast of Apicius" at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History with wine and food pairings from over a dozen top chefs and winemakers with the food adapted from the world's first cookbook compiled in 5th century Rome.
Chef Cameron of Pico Los Alamos learned his craft from many of the best chefs in the United States: Thomas Keller at Bouchon Bistro, at Bestia and Bavel in Los Angeles, and most recently at Blue Hill at Stone Barns in New York. Pico Los Alamos is owned by Will Henry and wife Kali Kopley. Will Henry is also the owner and co-winemaker at LUMEN with winemaking legend Lane Tanner.
