Betty Dunbar’s extensive background  in wine retailing, wholesaling and importing has exposed her to a broad and enticing array of both old world legends and new world upstarts, particularly the efforts emerging from Santa Barbara County.  Most recently, she opened and operated Wine + Beer Bar at the Santa Barbara Public Market, and managed The Winehound wine shop.  Whether savoring an aged Burgundy or assessing a Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir, she’ll utilize her seasoned palate to put the appropriate bottle in your hands!

Dennis Peterson served as a combat officer in Vietnam, where he received the Purple Heart. He left the Marines in 1967 with the rank of Captain, then was stockbroker with Morgan Stanley/Dean Witter, and later worked in the field of finance as Regional Vice President of a major investment counseling firm. His career has been immersed in real estate, as he now manages several commercial buildings and 200 residential units in the central coast area. Dennis's most prized possession might be his private wine cellar, which lucky for us, he is graciously offering a small allotment to Laplace!
