Join Fiddlehead Cellars on Saturday, July 28 from 1-4 p.m. in celebrating its 30thAnniversary. The event will be held at Fiddlestix Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills (Mile Marker 7.28 Santa Rosa Rd., Lompoc).

To celebrate Fiddlehead Cellar’s Anniversary, Owner/Winemaker Kathy Joseph is opening the Fiddlestix barn doors to Drink ‘728’ on 7/28 at 7.28. The event marks the 6th Annual “Drink 728 on 7/28,” but this year guests will have the opportunity to taste the wine in the place where it grows. Throughout the event, the popping and pouring of over 30 vintage wines will occur.

Kathy Joseph started Fiddlehead 30 years ago. When she began, there were very few women who owned wineries or were winemakers, and few people making high-end, quality Pinot Noir or Sauvignon Blanc. There was also a small number of people interested in the viticultural frontiers of Santa Barbara County and the north Willamette Valley.

“30 years is a long haul in today’s competitive environment. I remain true to my quest to master place-driven wines with elegance. And I am one of the few who relishes at showing off, without goofy attitude, years of vintages with bottle age. Please come experience and taste the place,” expresses Joseph.

She was mentored by five exceptional winemakers on the North Coast and studied Enology and Viticulture at the University of California, Davis at the graduate level. In 1989, Joseph took a leap of faith and created a winery like no other. She is motivated to think outside the box and sell, market, and promote in her own unique way.
