J. Wilkes Winery (Santa Maria Valley) Winemaker Dinner at Barbianca Local Kitchen

Winemaker extraordinaire Wes Hagen held court at Barbianca, entertaining and informing guests with some Santa Barbara County wine history (he lectures on this topic at universities around the US), some unique insight into the art of winemaking and of course, waxed poetic about the five J. Wilkes wines that were featured at the gourmet dinner.
