Throughout the month of November, the Grassini Family Vineyards Tasting Room is teaming up with the Santa Barbara FoodBank (www.foodbanksbc.org) to help bring some extra holiday cheer to hungry families in Santa Barbara County.  Approximately 1 out of every 4 people in Santa Barbara County receive food support from the FoodBank, and 44% of those served are children.  

To help keep the FoodBank flourishing this holiday season, Grassini Family Vineyards will reward each guest who donates non-perishable food items with a 2-for-1 wine tasting.  As an added bonus, customers will receive 1% off their purchases for every pound of food they bring in!  (Up to 5% per purchase.) 

A list of desperately needed items can be found here.
