Condor’s Hope x Marbeso x Cuyama Buckhorn

Wine Dinner & Tasting Weekend

Saturday June 15th – Sunday June 16th

Cuyama Valley



We are thrilled to share our partnerships with the Cuyama Buckhorn and Marbeso wines with you. Come experience it for yourself in this amazing collaboration on June 15th. We have personally experienced extraordinary dinners crafted by the Buckhorn’s new chef, Hugo Vera. Marbeso Wines owner/winemaker Colin McNany is the winemaker for Condor’s Hope as well. This will be a weekend well worth the road traveled for a one-of-a-kind food and wine experience.

We hope you can join us!

Robbie & Steve

Condor’s Hope and Marbeso wines are the first featured partners for Cuyama Buckhorn’s summer Wine Dinner Series! The wines poured with dinner will take guests on a journey across small-farm, small-batch vineyards from sea to chaparral. Taste the coastal influences of Santa Barbara, the terroir of the Santa Rita Hills, and the distinct dryland of the Cuyama Valley. It’s all in the name—Marbeso, of course, means “kiss of the sea” and Condor’s Hope, references the protected high desert habitat of the once-nearly extinct California Condor in Cuyama.

A six-course menu crafted by the Buckhorn’s very own Chef Hugo Vera will complement the wines and, the next afternoon, guests will have the opportunity to visit the vineyard at Condor’s Hope and explore their varietals while looking out over rows of grapes and rolling foothills.

Colin was an agroecology student of Steve’s at UCSC and has kept a close connection with his mentor, continuing as the winemaker for Condor’s Hope today. Their long relationship reminds us that the company we’re in today can become our community for a lifetime.
