PATIO PICNIC

One of Ojai’s latest boutiques to open: Tipple & Ramble, Suné Goldsteen’s selfdesigned emporium that showcases artisanal food products, dining decor, and barware inside the store along with a wine tasting patio out back, where shoppers can order small bites, salads, cheese and charcuterie boards, and

more. “I have a background in design, and have always been interested in the intersection between design, food, wine—I wanted to create a space that celebrated all of these things,” says Goldsteen. “I came across this little Spanish-style building, and I thought it was the perfect place to try out this hybrid concept that showcases food and entertaining-related retail and also has an outdoor patio where we could serve wine and have events.” Items sourced from all over the globe include Moroccan pillows and textiles (from $225), linens from France (from $28), Portland-based Pok Pok Som drinking vinegars ($15), and of course, locally made Four Leaf Woodshop items (from $12). “The ethos behind what we stock is that they should be made with a sense of integrity and also have a joie de vivre,” says Goldsteen. Look online for summertime pop-up dinners and wine tasting events. –G.Z.T. TIPPLE & RAMBLE 315 N. Montgomery St., Ojai, 805-319-9496, tippleandramble.com.
