Vino et Amicis
One of the Central Coast’s best-kept secrets.
Nestled in the trendy Old Town district of Orcutt, Vino et Amicis is one of the Central Coast’s best-kept secrets. Step into a relaxing local wine bar where you can find specialty items that you wouldn’t find elsewhere. Originally founded in 2018, Vino et Amicis features the best Central Coast wine individually handpicked by their owners – keeping it small and local.
Vino et Amicis boasts more than 40 varietals from 30 wineries. The owners, Dawn and Kurt Hixenbaugh, continue to create meaningful relationships with local winemakers and wineries to keep their bar consistently full of only the top-notch wine in the region. Vino et Amicis also hosts a number of events. Swing by open mic night or sip Santa Maria Valley wine to the tune of live music for a night of good tunes and great vino. You can even order pizza from nearby Pizzeria Bello Forno and have it delivered to Vino et Amicis for the perfect pairing.
