About the event

We are thrilled to welcome Larry Shaffer, owner and winemaker of tercero wines in Santa Barbara County, for our first winemaker dinner! After working in sales, marketing, and publishing, Larry decided to pivot. He took on the challenge of learning the science behind winemaking and completed a master's in viticulture and enology from UC Davis. He spent nearly a decade making wine at Fess Parker Winery before branching out on his own. tercero wines concentrates on small lot, hand crafted wines using grapes exclusively from leading Santa Barbara County vineyards and works with grapes from nearly every AVA within the county.

$100 per person includes a 5-course menu with tercero wines paired with each course. Please note that the $130 price at checkout is all-inclusive of taxes, gratuity, and system fees. Wine Club and Kula Members - be sure you're signed in to get 10% off your seat! Join us for our first course reception at 5:30pm, seated by 6pm.
