Matthew Johnson

San Ysidro Ranch - Santa Barbara, CA

For more than a century oenophiles have flocked to San Ysidro Ranch, a luxurious hideaway nestled in the foothills of Southern California's stunning wine country. Join us at the Beard House when the property's talented chef, Matthew Johnson, will craft a tantalizing menu that celebrates one of the most prized delicacies of California terroir: the Meyer lemon.
