Red Wine Tasting
First Friday
Santa Cruz:
Pairing Fine Wine with Fine Art

by Bree Karpavage

At the end of Pacific Ave and the cusp of the roundabout to the ocean sits Big Basin Vineyards Wine Bar, a beautifully crafted room of redwood and steel smelling of fermented grapes, good conversation and fine art. A fairly new addition to the downtown scene, Big Basin Wine Bar moved from Saratoga in 2021 to Santa Cruz – an extension of the popular vineyard and tasting room at the top of China Grade in Boulder Creek.

Long time wine-lover, club member and artist, Randie Silverstein has helped put this new wine spot on the Downtown map, curating First Friday exhibits since November 2022. A long time Santa Cruz Open Studios artist, Randie creates with crushed glass, forming colorful discs and unique installations. Her art curation skills just warming up as she invites both established and emerging artists into the space, pairing fine wine with fine art.
