The Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Café, located at 2879 Grand Ave, Los Olivos, is pleased to announce their next featured winemaker for the “Friday Night Winemakers” series. Friday, July 31, winemaker Ryan Deovlet from Refugio Ranch Vineyards will be chatting with guests and offering samples of their wines, which he feels would pair perfectly with their meal, during the dinner hours of 6-8PM. Held the last Friday of each month in 2015, the informal and friendly atmosphere at the Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Café is the perfect place to learn more about these special winemakers while enjoying the fresh local dishes from the Los Olivos Café’s new Spring menu. No reservations are required to participate. However, dinner reservations are strongly recommended. For more information or reservations: 805-688-7265 or www.losolivoscafe.com.
Ryan Deovlet began his career as a winemaker while working in Australia and New Zealand with “Willing Workers on Organic Farms” in 2004. The following year, he returned to California and began working on the Central Coast with Stephen Dooley of Stephen Ross Wine Cellars. After a couple of years, he continued his education in winemaking by working with various viticulturists and esteemed winemakers. In 2008, he created his own project, Deovlet Wines, with fruit from the La Encantada Vineyard. Working with Matthias Pippig in the late spring of 2008, he assisted in the production Sanguis wines and also helped to develop a couple of new estate projects, one of which was the Refugio Ranch in Santa Ynez. Since then, he has taken on the winemaking responsibilities at the Refugio Ranch Vineyards. Says Ryan, “The opportunity to give a voice and provide an identity to this property through the wines we create is an honor and privilege.” Ryan is looking forward to this Friday Night Winemaker event to share the “Refugio Ranch Vineyards” wines with guests of the Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Café.
