Just like you, we miss drinks with friends. Instead of letting ‘shelter in place’ stop us, each week we're asking some of our favorite people in food, wine, art, and culture how they’re surviving these cRaZy TiMeS and, of course, find out what they’re drinking right now.
If you’d like to join us for a drink, we provide links to some of our go-to online wine shops.
Drinks with Jeff Fischer..
I’m an actor and a winemaker, obviously not the brightest career choices. I started Habit in 2008 in Happy Canyon and now make wine in Santa Maria in the old barn on the Presquile property with Ernst Storm.

Any tips or hacks you’ve found useful during Shelter in Place?
Lots and lots of wine, Prison Dumbell workouts along with some amazing Yoga and HIIT classes on the Alo Moves App
What are you currently reading, watching, listening to?
I’m trying to get through YES! The Outsider on HBO, New season of Ozark! Also reading the latest novel by TC Boyle Outside Looking In.

Tell us about your 3 wine picks
My first pick would be the Storm Sauvignon Blanc, such a great bottle of wine and one of the best Sauvignon Blanc’s in CA for the money. Domaine Ott Gruner is a classic and I love Gruner! I also love the Sandhi Chardonnay. Guess I’m in a white wine frame of mind!
