Ollie's Pub and Fields Family Wines share more than a wall inside a brick building on North School Street. Operators of the establishments have pooled their resources and are working to realize their vision of creating an environment that appeals to a wide demographic of beer and wine drinkers.
They collaborated and transformed the facade of the building in recent weeks, and the pub also offers Fields' wine to its customers. When Russ Fields, owner of the Woodbridge Winery that shares his family's name, was looking at locations for a Downtown tasting room, he found the perfect place in longtime friend and Ollie's Pub owner Sean Guthrie's building. The two attended college together at University of California Santa Barbara.
