Welcome new Tasting Room Manager: Wiktoria Marroquin

We are excited to introduce our new tasting room manager

A picture of Au Bon Climat's new Tasting Room Manager, Wiktoria, smiling at the camera.

Wiktoria (pronounced Victoria) is new to Santa Barbara and California but certainly not new to California wine. She was born and raised in Poland and has worked throughout Europe. Wiktoria moved to Tuscany, worked for a small winery, and discovered her love for Sangiovese. When an opportunity to work at a Michelin star restaurant in Slovenia came up, Wiktoria decided to move. She traded the sun for the snow, and learned everything there was to know about skin-contact white wines that Slovenia is famous for. Continuing her snowy journey, she spent the last five years in Iceland working as one of the few sommeliers in the country. Love brought her to California, and she now gets to call Santa Barbara and Au Bon Climat home.

Come in soon to meet her! She would love to hear from you. Her email is
