October 18, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us for a wine harvest dinner celebration under the stars at the Sesnon House at Cabrillo College. Meet celebrity wine professionals including distinguished wine writers, Master Sommeliers and celebrity chefs. Enjoy an array of award winning wines produced by our local vintners and culinary delights prepared by the students of the Culinary Arts Department of Cabrillo College. Ticket includes wine reception and a three course dinner. All ticket proceeds go to the Culinary Arts and Wine Program at Cabrillo College. It wouldn’t be a fundraiser without a silent auction so come prepared to support these two causes!

About the Wines and Dinner:

Every year our wineries participate in a Santa Cruz Mountains Professional Wine Tasting. For 48 hours SCMWA hosts a group of distinguished wine professionals from around California. On Thursday key industry leaders and professional tasters meet for a VIP reception and on Friday they begin the Professional Tasting from 8 am to 3 pm. Wines are tasted blind by varietal, region and given points.

This year, we are hosting an Wine Harvest Dinner directly following the tasting. This dinner will be a celebration of the region’s wines and culinary delights.  As a fundraiser for both organizations there will be a silent auctions in which a portion of the proceeds will benefit both programs.

The Harvest Dinner wine reception will begin at 6 pm followed by the Harvest dinner from 7pm – 9pm.

Individual tickets are available or tables of 10. Individual tickets are $55 and a ten top is $500. Again all proceeds benefit the Cabrillo Culinary Arts Sponsorship program. Please contact the SCMWA office directly with any questions at 831-685-8463 or  contact@scmwa.com.
