Over Pecorino crisps, collard-greens salad and herb-roasted leg of lamb, one of America's most creative young couples celebrates a fascinating new wine project.
Two years ago, when Scott Campbell stopped by the Wild Horse Winery, on California's Central Coast, he never expected that the visit would lead to one of the more peculiar professional partnerships in the wine business. A tattoo artist who has inked the bodies of Kanye West and Johnny Depp, Campbell was on a meandering road trip with the actor-director Lake Bell, now his wife. The couple had heard about Wild Horse through a friend, and while they both appreciate a fine glass of wine, their reason for visiting had nothing to do with an interest in tasting the Pinot Noirs that Wild Horse is known for, even the ultra-limited-production Cheval Sauvage.
"We were there," says Campbell, "to see a llama."
