Beverage Director, Jason Eisner’s cocktails, at Gracias Madre, are prepared with local produce and housemade syrups, shrubs, tinctures, and bitters, a testament to his philosophy to never cut corners.

When Aubrey approached me in the fall and asked if she could do her senior project with the OC Wino, needless to say I was flattered. Aubrey, 18, is a senior at St. Margaret's Episcopal School. She will be attending University of Arizona in the fall with a major in Communications/Journalism and a minor in Photography.
The next three weeks will be a whirlwind tour. We are attending Jonathan Gold's Bite Nite in LA. Over two nights we will be mingling with top chefs and sampling food from over 50 amazing restaurants. Stay tuned for that adventure. We are also covering the one year anniversary party for OC Wino. Aubrey has amazing style and a true sense of what is hip and cool. In Aubrey's Alley, she will be sharing everything from great graduation gift ideas to age appropriate adventures and finds.
I asked her why the OC Wino, "I have always been a big fan and loyal follower of the blog and the OC Wino. I wanted to learn from A to Z how to get a Blog up and running. Being able to work with the OC Wino will allow me to write and do some photography while promoting and building something fun."
Check in with us often. The OC Wino team are hitting the streets.
