The Santa Barbara Vintners Foundation has announced its sponsorship of the 12th annual Vino de Sueños art auction and wine sales event slated for Saturday, 3 to 6 p.m. at Santa Ynez Valley Marriott in Buellton. The fundraiser benefits ranch, vineyard and farm workers in the Santa Ynez and Los Alamos Valleys.
President of the Vintners Foundation, Jessica Gasca, reports that the organization has contributed $10,000 to this year's event.
“We are so excited and proud to be able to increase our level of sponsorship for this amazing one-of-a-kind event,” Gasca said. “Not only does the event benefit the hardworking people that support local viticulture, this “wine of dreams” project honors the work they do – work that helps both vintners’ and workers’ dreams come true.”
Hosted by People Helping People of the Santa Ynez Valley, the event will feature twelve wineries that have each donated bottles of wine to be labeled with original works of art created by a local artist.
