12th Annual Vino de Sueños
November 9, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm$50 – $125
Vino de Sueños, “Wine of Dreams,” is a wine brand conceived by the nonprofit human services organization, Santa Ynez Valley People Helping People (PHP), and a small group of premium Santa Barbara County vintners. This group wanted to make a difference in the lives of farm, ranch and vineyard workers who are the very heart and soul of the County’s agricultural economy. Founding Participant Wineries of Vino de Suenos include Alma Rosa, Buttonwood, Clos Pepe, Feliz Noche, Foxen, Longoria, and Presidio.
The Vino de Sueños wines are sold in order raise funds to give workers and their families the assistance they need during difficult economic times. PHP uses the funds to furnish basic needs (food, rent, and utility assistance) and family support services (counseling, youth after school programs, parent education, and scholarships). Services are directed to giving families a hand-up to achieve their dreams of a better life.
The 12th Annual Vino de Sueños Wine Release Celebration will be held on Saturday, November 9, 2019. The event will be held in Buellton, CA at the Santa Ynez Valley Marriott from 3-6 PM.
In addition to featuring a tasting and sale of the just released Vino de Sueños wines, the release celebration will include appetizer stations hosted by the Valley’s premier caterers, live music, and a silent auction featuring unique and large-format local wines, travel, and lifestyle items.
The art auction is another unique aspect of the Vino de Sueños release. Each wine from the brand is labeled with a reproduction of an original art piece specifically created by a local artist for the wine. Karina Puente, a product of the Santa Ynez Valley and its local schools, created one of the original art pieces which became the dream “icon” at the center of each label that identify it as part of the Vino de Sueños brand.
