Matt Winter Makes a Bold Decision to Follow His Passion

Matt Winter was first in line to work in the family business, his grandfather's clothing company, before he decided to follow his own passion. With a discerning eye and a love for design, he started designing his own interior spaces, focusing on—you guessed it—bars. With spaces like Santa Monica's 41 Ocean and Sassafras on his resume, he's made a name for himself as one of top names in his field. In the spirit of Charles Tanqueray—the founder of his namesake gin who chose his passion for gin over a family tradition of the clergy—Matt's blazed his own path and taken the design world by storm.
