ABOUT THE SANTA BARBARA WINE AUCTION

The biennial Santa Barbara Wine Auction has evolved through the years with the partnership of the Santa Barbara Vintners Foundation and Direct Relief. The 2022 Wine Auction celebrates its 12th year of helping our community, vintners and those affected by natural disasters and other hardships. The event will again be held at the luxurious The Ritz-Carlton Bacara in Santa Barbara.

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.

Stand Up and Be Counted

Support health care for Santa Barbara County farmworkers

The 2022 Santa Barbara Wine Auction comes at a time where health care is a delicate and sometimes polarizing topic. Funds collected during the Stand Up and Be Counted portion of the auction will go towards supporting farm and vineyard workers in our community, Santa Barbara County. These funds will help with medical and dental expenses.

Direct Relief and Community Health Centers (CHC) share a common mission to support healthy people and create a stronger community and better world. Linking Direct Relief and CHC helps to bring greater access to those on the Central Coast who otherwise lack access to needed health services.

The Santa Barbara Vintners Foundation’s mission is ‘Grounded In Giving’. Creating a sustainable and thriving community unites us as winemakers and wine enthusiasts a like bringing us together as one community. We are proud to support these organizations who are dedicated to programs that focus on maintaining health and addressing the needs of the world’s most at-risk population.
