The Legendary Santa Barbara Wine Country Dinner at Rancho La Cuna Vineyard

Lot #012

Au Bon Climat, Hitching Post, Lindquist Family Wines, The Ojai Vineyard

Dinner for 50 on Saturday, June 13, 2020

Four of Santa Barbara’s most iconic winemakers, each with nearly 40 years of experience in making wine, will come together for an evening of amazing food, extraordinary wine and engaging personalities in an idyllic setting. Pulling out all the stops is host, Jim Clendenen, winemaker and owner of Au Bon Climat who invites the winning bidders to his estate vineyard, Rancho La Cuna, a 100-acre property in the Los Alamos Valley.

Grill master Frank Ostini of Hitching Post II will prepare a multi-course, sit-down dinner featuring his wood-fire cuisine as the winning bidders gather at the ranch house that sits atop the property overlooking the valley with majestic views. Observe the master chef in action and enjoy the comradery of five good friends: Jim Clendenen, Adam Tolmach (Jim’s original partner at Au Bon Climat) with The Ojai Vineyard, Bob Lindquist with Lindquist Family Wines (formerly of Qupé), Frank Ostini and Gray Hartley of Hitching Post Wines.

When these the legends get together, the stories run long and cellar doors open. We are talking cellars that go 40 years deep. So, get ready for a once in a lifetime gathering of special bottes, library collections and big bottles from Au Bon Climat, Hitching Post, Lindquist Family Wines and The Ojai Vineyard.
