Guest Blog from Owner, Nadia Zilkha: An Ode to Bottles

November 13, 2014

What I fondly refer to as the ‘chimney place’ in the Tasting Room at Laetitia is far from a chimney place. It’s closer to a ‘trophy place.’ Though we are fortunate to have a number of specific varietals with their own awards on our shelves, this is a different sort of trophy place—it refers back […]

As they’re 90 miles apart, one on the coast by San Luis Obispo and the other at 3,000 ft altitude in the Eastern Sierras of Santa Barbara County, the contrast in terroir is enormous. […]
