Then & Now - A Library Wine Event
February 25
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Age before fruity? The dilemma all wine drinkers must face: Do we drink it now or should we age it? On February 25, 2017, our winemakers will be opening up our cellar doors to share a special selection of Zaca Mesa library wines. With 44 years of history, our cellar has built up an amazing collection of past vintages that highlight the true longevity of wines from our special vineyard site.
A collection of our library wines will be paired with our current releases, allowing those to appreciate the youthful, aromas and textures next to the silky, intellectual nature that develops after many years in the bottle.  An assortment of appetizers will be paired with the wines.
Please join us for this intimate tasting event held in our barrel room.   Tickets are limited, so please RSVP to or call 805.688.9339

Tickets: $60 Club/ $75 non-club

Kirby Brown & Kathleen Sieck

Standing Sun LIVE


Kirby Brown

Kathleen Sieck

About Kirby Brown:

Kirby Brown was born in East Texas and moved to rural Damascus, Arkansas at age two. His formative years on the farm kept him occupied bottle-feeding calves, fishing for crappie, and shelling peas. His taste for music was also fostered here, being exposed to gospel, bluegrass, and the classic country his grandfather would strum in the evenings.

After the divorce of his parents, Kirby and his dad, a closeted poet, would spend visits diving into film, music, and the nuances of American Poetry. He became as much interested in reading Whitman and Frost as he was in grade school or spending time with his friends. This fresh form of expression would become the bedrock on which Kirby’s artistic life would be built.

When he was nineteen, his first true love and his best friend died in separate incidents. Through the long process of grieving, Kirby found an outlet for his pain in writing songs. Fearing that he too might die before his time in that same small town, Kirby moved to Dallas and bunked with fellow musicians. An offer to tag along on tour put Kirby on an eight-month road trip through what seemed like every town in America. Immediately after coming off the road, Kirby was offered an opening slot at House of Blues in Dallas. Soon after, Kirby released his first independent record, Child Of Calamity.

He found a new stride and began sharing bills and festivals with artists including Willie Nelson, The Flaming Lips, Leon Russell, and The Avett Brothers.

About Kathleen Sieck:

"I love where we come from. I love that I know it won't rain from April to October, I love fresh tamales in December, I love the pre-seven am cowboy rush at the Longhorn cafe in town, I love the grapevines climbing in clean rows up the flanks of the hillsides, rust-red beneath the autumn mist.

I love simple country music - not the kind on the radio, but the kind you used to hear growing up in the dusty bench seat of the ranch truck, with the head of an australian shepherd resting on the open window sill. The kind of music where Mr. Cowboy Man seemed like he just pulled up right next to you, no frills, to tell you a little something about life - while wearing his awesome vintage 1950's jean jacket and sporting an old nylon string guitar.

I write music that reflects my life as a Californian, as a Christian, as a mother and a lover and a wife. I write music to go on a back porch, mostly, and sometimes a front porch or a church or a bar or someplace, but mostly I write music about the toils and exultations of this beautiful and difficult life we are in. 

It's a short life, so we should sing while we have the breath for it."
