The 10th Annual Vino de Sueños (Wine of Dreams) benefit wine release celebration will be held November 11th from 3-6PM at the SYV Marriott in Buellton. Proceeds benefit farm and vineyard workers and their families through People Helping People (PHP).

Vino de Sueños (VDS) is the brand name for PHP's wine series released each year at an annual fundraiser. This year, 13 of the best local wineries are donating wines bottled under the exclusive VDS label. These wines will be available for tasting and sale at the event.   

2017 Wineries:
Alma Rosa, Brander, Buttonwood, Dierberg/Star Lane, Foley, Foxen, Ken Brown, Longoria, Kitá, Quail Crossing, Riverbench, Stolpman, and Vogelzang,
 
PHP serves nearly 1,000 farm and vineyard workers and their family members each year in the Santa Ynez and Los Alamos Valleys, costing in excess of $250,000, and could not afford to serve all of those in need without the donations of our winemakers and lead sponsors.

2017 Lead Sponsors: Santa Barbara County Vintners' Foundation, Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians Foundation, Coastal Vineyard Care Associates

Another unique aspect of the Vino de Sueños wines is that every year each winery's VDS bottle label includes a reproduction of an original art piece created and donated by local artists specifically for the VDS fundraiser.
Kros Andrade, owner of UVA Design Studios, designs the unique Vino de Sueños wine labels using the artists' original art pieces. What has resulted from the marriage of the winemakers' and artists' talents, is a series of wonderful wines with extraordinary labels.
 
2017 Artists: Susan Belloni, Peggy Brierton, Chris Chapman, Jim Farnum, Kevin Gleason, Rebecca Gomez, Patricia Hedrick, John Iwerks, Rene Kelleher, Teresa McNeil Maclean, Sharon Tate, and Seyburn Zorthian.

Their VDS artworks will be prominently displayed at the event and will be available for purchase via a silent auction.

In addition to the wine tasting, wine sale, and art auction, the November 11th release event will feature a silent auction of upscale lifestyle items and select wines, live music, and appetizer stations catered by some of the top chefs on the Central Coast including Jeff Olsson of New West Catering and Luca Crestanelli of S.Y.
