On November 12th, the 9th Annual Vino de Sueños wine sale and auction event will be held at the Santa Ynez Valley Marriott from 3-6 PM. Every wine from the brand is labeled with a reproduction of an original art piece specifically created by a local artist for that wine. In addition to tasting and sales of the just released Vino de Sueños wines, the event includes appetizer stations, live music, and a silent auction, including the original wine label art.
Vino de Sueños, “Wine of Dreams,” was developed by People Helping People (PHP) and a small group of premium Santa Barbara County vintners to make a difference in the lives of vineyard and farm workers. The annual fundraising event was conceived to raise funds to give farm workers and their families the assistance they need during difficult economic times. PHP administers the funds to furnish basic needs (food, rent, and utility assistance) and family support services (counseling, after-school programs, domestic violence and child abuse prevention, parent education, and scholarships). Services are directed to giving families a hand-up to achieve their dreams of a better life. PHP expends approximately $250,000 each year to assist nearly 1,000 workers and their family members.
