Bob’s Well Bread Bakery is bringing you the most delicious pairing your taste buds have ever had! The combination of a wine-tasting and the best treats from their bakery for their monthly Meet the Winemaker tasting series is too good to pass up. This month, the series introduces Karen Steinwachs of Buttonwood Winery & Vineyard.

Karen Steinwachs fell in love Santa Barbara County wines a long time ago and would sneak regular trips to the Central Coast during her time in the high-tech world of Los Angeles. After 20 years of gazing at a computer screen, Steinwachs decided she would take a chance. After being turned down by several winemakers, Norm Yost, then winemaker at Foley Estates agreed to give her a harvest job. He told her the truth; it would be hard, she would only make seven dollars an hour, and would be laid off when the harvest was over. After her six-week job at Foley was meant to end, Steinwachs stayed for three more years before taking a position at Fiddlehead Cellars. She never looked back and is now a winemaker at Buttonwood Winery & Vineyard. Her wine is made with care and is meant to be provide pleasure to those who drink it. 

Buttonwood Winery & Vineyard will always be a place that protects the land it sits on while providing the community with food, wine, and beauty. Betty Williams founded Buttonwood Farm not only for the local community but for the land itself. Her joyful spirit of generosity can still be felt within the winery and vineyard today. The 39-acre vineyard now has 33,000 vines on the mesmerizing 106-acre property.

They bring guests the Meet the Winemaker monthly series to bring together people inside and outside the community. With the local community always in mind, the Oswaks family continues to support their home through donations and by giving what they don’t sell to local food banks.
