Rajat Parr—esteemed sommelier, wine director of The Mina Group, and co-owner of Domaine de la Côte and Sandhi—knows a thing or two about the food and wine of Santa Barbara wine country. Throughout the evening in this picturesque coastal region, Raj takes our tastebuds on a journey around the world: grapes from Burgundy, grilled avocados and fresh wasabi from California, Mexican-inspired kati rolls from India, and 80-year-old apple brandy from Normandy. And as a bonus, he manages to make road sodas classy.
We lost count of how many bottles of wine were consumed that night, but one thing is for sure: Raj knows his way around this valley.
