We stopped in at Municipal Winemakers in Santa Barbara during a Californian road trip. Created by Dave Potter, his concept involves sourcing grapes from different growers and selling his own small batch wines, producing only about 600 cases a year. The tasting room is located a couple of blocks from Stearns Wharf and it looks nothing like your typical winery.
Housed in an industrial space, it’s fitted out with recycled materials found locally; such as filing cabinets and trophies. Known locally as Muni Wines, we were fond of the Pale Pink (rosé) and Bright White (riesling) with all the wines featuring beautiful typography on the labels. A relaxed space with super friendly staff, our only regret was that we couldn’t spend all afternoon sipping wines here!
