This combination wine bar/restaurant/retail shop is owned by Will Henry of Lumen Wines and his restaurateur wife, Kali Kopley. The wine list is surprisingly approachable considering its size, highlighting emerging regions alongside local selections and a number of unicorn bottles.
From the Sommelier: “I am a local winemaker and absolutely love the wines from Santa Barbara County but I also believe that part of the experience of eating in a fine-dining environment requires a broad selection of wines to choose from, and that while many of those wines should be local, it’s equally important to offer an experience that is more exploratory in nature. I think this is one of the most interesting and unique things about wine: They give us a reflection of the places where they are grown and produced, and in a way that is far more expressive than any other product that we consume.” —Will Henry, Pico
