Interview with Jeff Fischer of Habit Wine

March 24, 2015

Habit Wine is one of the small batch wine labels our esteemed Wine Director, George Pitsironis, loves to have on hand at Union. New on our wine list is their 2014 Rose, which you won’t be able to find in too many other places due to its very small production. And recently, Chef Kalman and George Pitsironis served Habit Wine when they were given the honor of cooking dinner at the James Beard Foundation.
Habit Wine was started by Jeff Fischer, a man who prides himself on knowing his vineyards and providing his customers with sustainable wines that taste great.
From the Habit Website:

Habit is fortunate enough to be able to work closely with the best vineyard sites throughout Santa Barbara County.

All of our vineyards are managed by Coastal Vineyard Care Association which has a strong commitment to farming using sustainable, organic and bio-dynamic practices.
