Hosted by Winemaker Dan Spratling and Curated by Blackbird Executive Chef Travis Watson
Don’t miss this opportunity to relish in the best that the wine and culinary worlds have to offer with our delectable winemaker dinner at Hotel Californian’s Blackbird Santa Barbara restaurant. Sip on world-class wines from a California original, Firestone Vineyards in Santa Ynez Valley, while you mingle with Winemaker Dan Spratling and enjoy an exquisite dinner from Executive Chef Travis Watson.
Firestone Vineyard, founded by legendary tire innovator Harvey Firestone’s son, Leonard, and his son, Brooks, was the first estate winery established in Santa Barbara County in 1972. What began as a dream to plant a vineyard and establish a winery has today grown to 325 certified sustainable vineyard acres that Winemaker Dan Spratling is bringing into a new era with the release of new wines.
The evening begins with a meet & greet reception on the patio, followed by a four course dinner in Blackbird. Each course is carefully curated by Chef Travis to perfectly pair with these superb wines.
