2020 Santa Barbara Wine Auction

Posted: Feb 18, 2020

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.
