Gala attendees will be greeted with passed hors d’oeuvres as they meander through the silent auction while sipping current release wines from the Wilson Artisan Wineries. Guests will be invited to a formal three-course wine pairing dinner complete with an amuse bouche, bistro filet, and chocolate caramel tart provided by Park Avenue Catering. California Senator Mike McGuire will be heading the live auction post-dinner while guests imbibe on gold-medal wines followed by brandy or port digestifs.
Event proceeds benefit Sonoma County children whose parent(s) raise the grapes that support our wine industry.Help us raise a glass and cheers to their future!
Sixteen years ago Ken and Diane Wilson held a casual barbecue at Wilson Winery with the belief that children of Sonoma County vineyard workers should not be limited by financial hardships in their pursuit of educational opportunities; thus began the Children of the Vineyard Workers Scholarship fundraiser (CVWSF). In 2002, they collaborated with the Sonoma County Farm Bureau. Each year, Wilson Artisan Wineries provides numerous scholarships throughout Sonoma County and have since distributed more than $450,000.00 in scholarships.
