MORGEN MCLAUGHLIN - EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, SANTA BARBARA VINTNERS – MOVIE PREMIERE OF SOMM: INTO THE BOTTLE SANTA BARBARA WINE MOVIE PREMIERE Join us at the beautiful Bacara Resort and Spa for the Santa Barbara movie premiere of SOMM: INTO THE BOTTLE, the sequel to the 2013 cult hit SOMM. Jason Wise’s SOMM: INTO THE BOTTLE raises the curtain into the seldom seen world that surrounds the wine we drink. How many people understand how wine is produced? How it is grown? What goes on in the cellar? From those questions to how many hands touch a bottle, to why wine costs what it costs, to how certain wines end up on a wine list, this movie offers a never before seen look into the world of wine. After the premiere, join us for Chef tastings by Bacara's famed Executive Chef Vincent Lesage. The reception also includes eleven esteemed Santa Barbara County wineries pouring an outstanding selection of wines.
