We were proud to continue supporting the farm workers and their families of Santa Barbara County’s wine industry, Direct Relief International, and Community Health Centers at the 11th Santa Barbara Wine Auction!
As a table host — and previous sponsor — we loved seeing how our community can rise together to help those in need, specifically when it comes to healthcare services. We were pleased to see our silent auction lot of six bottles of 2016 Purisima Red Wine contribute $450 to the success of the auction. It was a beautiful evening at the Ritz-Carlton Bacara resort and we look forward to participating at the next auction in 2022!
About the Santa Barbara Wine Auction
The biennial Santa Barbara Wine Auction has evolved through the years with the partnership of the Santa Barbara Vintners Foundation and Direct Relief. The 2020 Wine Auction celebrates its 11th year of helping our community, vintners and those effected by natural disasters and other hardships. Held at the luxurious The Ritz-Carlton Bacara in Santa Barbara, guests will experience an opening reception with local wines, appetizers and a customized Silent Auction. Guests will be hosted by Celebrity MC, Billy Baldwin. Local winemakers host each table and pour their hand-selected wines for guests during the four-course meal in The Ritz-Carlton Bacara Grand Ballroom. The menu was crafted with collaboration of Executive Chef Peter Lee of Loquita Santa Barbara and the Bacara Culinary Team.
