I met Summerland’s affable owner Nebil “Bilo” Zarif some years ago at a conference in Half Moon Bay. Bilo had just sold his interests in Barnwood/ Laetitia Winery to pursue a new and exciting venture: Summerland Winery. Drawing upon his years of experience in the region, Summerland would be dedicated to offering the best wine experience on the Central Coast.

Bilo was looking for something different to set his new wines apart from the competition. Having worked previously with Napa legend Cameron Hughes, I knew just what he was looking for. Below are some bottle designs that you soon may see on the shelves at a store near you.
