Laurie Jervis: Winning Tasting, Dining Experiences That Showcase Food and Wines - Noozhawk

When I caught up with­ Doug Margerum in late October for a sushi pairing with his namesake wines at the newer Los Olivos tasting room, I didn’t know how sushi might enhance wine, or vice versa.

Sparklers That Shine - 805 Living

Barden 2020 Blanc de Blancs, Sta. Rita Hills ($72, margerumwines. com/barden-wines) Just released, this bubbly from winemaker Doug Margerum—the label is a nod to his middle name—is more proof that the Sta. Rita Hills AVA can give rise to phenomenal sparkling wine. All chardonnay, the wine features fruit from two of the area’s premier vineyards: La Rinconada and Sanford & Benedict. Primary and secondary fermentation, including full malolactic, were done entirely in barrel for a year, with an additional fermentation done in bottle, giving this wine a delightful creaminess—hints of mousse, even—all buoyed by an energetic rush of bubbles. Puff pastry and citrus on the nose give way to rounded flavors of lemon and almond extract. This is a perfect sparkler with great aging potential.  Continue »

“We are thrilled to have won for Best Urban Tasting Room,” said Doug Margerum, whose elegant space in the Hotel Californian is not to be missed. “It’s a tasting room like no other in Santa Barbara,” he said. “A fabulous menu for dining all day and night, extensive outdoor seating, space for private parties for tastings, lunches, and dinners, and an enthusiastic and well-trained staff to educate and illuminate. With two brands to taste — Barden and Margerum — it is an experience like no other.” Readers were also happy with their hours that spill into the evening — noon to 8 p.m. Sunday-Thursday, and noon to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
