Located in the heart of Santa Barbara in historic El Paseo. Guests enter through a secluded garden courtyard in to a dramatic dining room complete with hand painted beamed ceilings and a baronial fireplace. It has been regarded for years as “the most beautiful dining room in Santa Barbara.” Wine Cask’s chefs use regional ingredients to fashion imaginative plates of bistro style cuisine. We welcome you to enjoy all that WINE CASK has to offer, as we share our commitment and passion for excellence in the art of food and wine.
In 1981 the Margerum Family purchased an existing wine & beer making and combination wine store that had been in business for about five years. We quickly built an adjacent wine tasting and light foods wine bar in the adjoining studio which would become the award winning WINE CASK restaurant. Serving over forty wines by the glass with imaginative plates of food, the small space (37 seats) became popular with downtown business folks and food and wine savy travelers. WINE CASK was also the first wine store to actively promote Santa Barbara County wines with tastings, dinners, and newsletters. We began a futures program where consumers could purchase the finest and rarest Santa Barbara wines and Wine Cask private label wines on futures, with discounts of 20 to 30 percent. Santa Barbara Wine Futures 2003 will offer worldwide, 120 rare and limited production wines from the best wineries in the area.
In 1991 we expanded the wine store and moved the restaurant across the hall to the beautiful gold room dining room with 80 seats inside and 40 seats on the patio. In 1997 we opened Intermezzo, a lounge, bar, and light foods establishment next to the patio. In 1993 the restaurant received the Wine Spectator Grand Award and has received the award every year since. WINE CASK sells rare and fine wines throughout the world with access to the finest wines at competitive price on the World Wide Web since 1996.
In business since 1983, WINE CASK is acclaimed for being Santa Barbara’s premier caterer. Offering service for 5 – 5000, Wine Cask will provide quality, commitment to excellence and expertise.
