Jeff Fischer has been around wine most of his life, beginning at the young age of 10 when he would order bottles for his family from restaurant wine lists. While he pursued his successful acting career, he started making wine on the side. He continued to study winemaking and landed in Happy Canyon, the AVA at the eastern end of Santa Ynez in Santa Barbara County, where he discovered its great potential for growing excellent quality Bordeaux varietals. He founded Habit Wine Company in 2007 and started making very small quantities of Cabernet Franc in a jucy light way that we here at Local Cellar deeply appreciate, especially in the summer months. Today he makes a total of six different wines including his first love Cab Franc, a super tasty Sauvignon Blanc, a seamlessly smooth Grüner Veltliner, and a Pinot Noir he's particularly proud of, all sourced from Happy Canyon and Santa Barbara County vineyards.

Tasting is free and available anytime from 5:00 - 7:00.  Must be at least 21 years old.
