The 2018 Santa Barbara Wine Auction held on February 17 at Ritz Carlton Barcara raised over $1 million for medical relief organization Direct Relief. At each gala event, the Vintners Foundation honors vintners who have made significant contributions to our wine making community. The 2018 Vintner of the Year is Fred Brander.
The 5th annual Vintners 5 Miler will be July 20, 2019 at Sanford Winery. Register for the race here. Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a sponsor for this premier racing event.
Silent Auction proceeds from Santa Barbara Vintners Festival Grand Tasting fund our scholarships program and a grant to the Viticulture/enology department at Allan Hancock College.
