Abstract artist, app maker, co-founder of the Wine Cask, promoter of the Presidio Neighborhood

Hugh Margerum has worn many hats over his lifetime in Santa Barbara and continues to do so. When I first met Hugh it was through the Wine Cask, the restaurant he founded with his brother and is now one of Santa Barbara's longest running gourmet restaurants. It took me a little while though to learn he was also an artist.

In this informative chat, we delve into his mysterious family history, his early years as an artist, working on apps, becoming part of the restaurant business, his recent work promoting the Presidio Neighborhood (where the Wine Cask resides) and much more. Thanks to Hugh for letting me come visit him in his converted garage studio.

Here's more about the Presidio Neighborhood.

I bet you're also wondering about Margerum wines.

And don't forget the Wine Cask.
