Celebrate Harvest 2015 at our Fifth Annual Grassini Family Vineyards Crush Cookout and Inaugural Cook-off! 

The 2015 Harvest was fast and furious, and has given us ample reason to celebrate! In true Grassini Family fashion, for our Fifth Annual Cookout, we have something special planned.  For the very first time, we will be hosting a friendly catering competition by the pond under the shade of our 400-year-old oak trees while showcasing all of our newest releases.  We're excited to share our newest wines with you, including our extremely limited production 2012 Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. 

Come join us and enjoy a catered harvest feast featuring several local chefs, who will be competing for your votes.  You'll also be treated to live music while you challenge your friends to an exciting game of bocce ball, paddle around the pond, or relax with a fishing rod in one hand and a glass of your favorite Grassini Family wine in the other.  The whole family is welcome - be sure to bring your camera to capture the Norman Rockwell moments! 

All of our wines will be available for purchase, and we’re offering complimentary shipping on wines purchased at the Cookout.  Tickets will sell out, so be sure to get yours soon!

2016 Santa Barbara Wine Auction Benefiting Direct Relief

Saturday, March 12, 2016

Bacara Resort and Spa

The Santa Barbara Wine Auction benefiting Direct Relief will be held at the exclusive Bacara Resort & Spa on Saturday, March 12, 2016. It will be an evening of fine wines, delectable foods, and an auction with lifestyle experiences and rare library wine lots.

The Santa Barbara Wine Auction was established in 2000 with the vision of ensuring that people in need across the U.S. and world have access to life-saving medical aid. The founders of the event, the Santa Barbara Vintners’ Foundation, created this biennial wine auction to champion Direct Relief’s mission: Improving the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergency situations by mobilizing and providing essential medical resources needed for their care.

Since inception the Santa Barbara Wine Auctions have raised over $3 million, which has been leveraged into almost $100 million in medical aid to equip frontline health workers, free clinics, and other health centers with medical supplies and equipment to treat the world’s most vulnerable people.

The Santa Barbara Vintners’ Foundation and Direct Relief have raised funds which are used to pioneer innovative medical assistance initiatives, many of which never would have been possible without the money raised through the benefit auction. These include expanding access to vital treatment for children with pneumonia; equipping local Medical Reserve Corps volunteers with emergency preparedness supplies; and laying the groundwork for what is now the largest charitable medicines program for vulnerable people in the U.S.
