Vines & Vision: The Winemakers of Santa Barbara County will profile winemakers, vineyards, and wineries throughout Santa Barbara County, marrying words and images in a hardcover, coffee-table format.

The book will include essays on the history of the region, an exploration of Santa Barbara’s urban wine culture, descriptions of each appellation, and coverage of an entire growing season, from pruning to bottling.

Featuring intimate portraits of winemakers, the book will be very personal in nature, driven by the people and places that make Santa Barbara wine country so special.


Photographer Macduff Everton (National Geographic, Life Magazine, Saveur, Gourmet, Wine Spectator, The Book of Santa Barbara) and journalist Matt Kettmann (Santa Barbara Independent, Wine Enthusiast) collectively have more than five decades of combined experience covering winemaking in this region. A project of this style and scope has never been undertaken. The expected publishing is Fall 2019.
