About Us


Headquartered in Santa Barbara, California, Savvy Wine Food™ is a boutique catering company that was launched in Napa Valley back in 2005.

Owned and operated by Chef Erika Heinemann, Savvy Wine Food’s mission is to create what Chef Erika calls “savvy wine food,” which is rooted in California-French style cuisine to enjoy with wine.

As Santa Barbara’s favorite personal chef (sometimes referred to as private chef) and boutique caterer, Chef Erika works with a diverse group of clients, ranging from Santa Barbara locals, tourists, visitors and VIP’s, to wedding parties, event managers, wineries and tasting rooms managers.
