••• The Independent‘s recent article about the Santa Barbara Economic Development Partnership included word of “an exciting new venture at the former Samy’s Camera. Diana Pereira, one of the founders of Impact Hub (now called Kiva Cowork), has combined forces with Chris Chiarappa of Mesa Burger to launch Kitchen 530, a shared commercial kitchen and restaurant that marries the co-working concept with food and drink.” Here’s more from the Kitchen 530 website: “The 11,500-square-foot community kitchen, to be located at 530 State Street will feature a top of the line commercial kitchen for use by local food entrepreneurs and Santa Barbara chefs, along with a unique restaurant and retail experience.” It’s shooting to open this fall.
••• Mosby Vineyard & Winery is on the market for $8.5 million. From the listing: “Easily seen from Hwy 101 just south of Buellton off the Santa Rosa Rd exit, this 208-acre property was planted by pioneer winemaker Bill Mosby in 1977. The red barn housing the Mosby Tasting Room is a well-known landmark for locals and visitors alike. Still operating under the original wine permit issued by Santa Barbara County in 1978 this historic property is ready for its next chapter to be written. The unique micro-climate of this location is created by ocean breezes from both Gaviota to the south and Lompoc to the west with clay loam and shale soils supporting approximately 18 acres of Italian varietals.”
