The 20th Annual Vines to Wines
Winemakers' Dinner & Auction

Please join us for the 20th Annual Cal Poly Wine and Viticulture Vines to Wines Winemakers' Dinner and Auction! This annual event brings together alumni, faculty, industry supporters and friends of the department to provide much needed assistance for the continued growth of the Vines to Wines club as all proceeds raised will benefit the club.

The dinner features a five-course paired dinner by Two Cooks Catering, a silent and live auction, and a brief overview of all that the Vines to Wines Club does throughout the year.

This is the Vines to Wines Club's largest fundraiser and this year, they are proud to honor "Women of the Industry" with two featured winemakers and six honored women that have been trailblazers in the wine industry.


This year’s event will be held at the beautiful Greengate Ranch in San Luis Obispo. Remember to dress warmly, as even though there will be heaters in the barn, the evening may be cool! To see more of the venue, please visit : http://www.greengateweddings.com/
