Honorary Vintner - Grassini Family Vineyards

The 2022 Vintner Honoree will be Grassini Family Vineyards, the family owned-and-operated winery that helped pioneer the Happy Canyon AVA and continues to be a torchbearer in Santa Barbara’s wine community.

“Our Vintner Honoree award is more than a celebration of a successful wine brand,” said Jessica Gasca, the Santa Barbara Vintners Foundation President, and owner and winemaker of Story of Soil. “It’s for the true leaders like the Grassini family, who go beyond and give back to the workers, steward the land and demonstrate the ultimate respect for our place and our community.”
