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.
The evening carries into the animated Live Auction, led by returning auctioneer, DawnMarie Kotsonis. The competition to be the winning bidder during the Live Auction generates electric energy and great fun. During the “Stand Up and Be Counted” portion of the program, guests are invited to participate and support healthcare for our farmworkers in Santa Barbara county.
