About

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 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.

Stand Up and Be Counted

Support health care for Santa Barbara County farmworkers

The 2020 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.

The santa barbara Vintner Honoree

Stolpman Vineyards
When Tom Stolpman purchased the land that is now Stolpman Vineyards, he declared that if his dream of owning a vineyard was to come true, it would not be on the backs of people being taken advantage of. He asked vineyard manager Ruben Solorzano to employ vineyard workers year-round, so the team members could have a steady job, a career and raise their families with security. Ruben Solorzano took Tom's idea a step further: he aimed to further engage our workers. He wanted Stolpman's crew members to learn the lifecycle of the vine and become engaged and passionate about their work. A man of action, Ruben started a training program in which he gave one Cuadra - a small vineyard block - to his team so they would take responsibility for their land. Each crew member became the farmer rather than just the worker.
