Rotary Club of Winters
Special to the Express
Winters’ premier wine and food-tasting event is back on Friday, Oct. 14 and lands for its first time at Hotel Winters, where dozens of wineries will pour into downtown to create one seriously memorable fall evening on the town.
Local and other premier wineries will mingle with local food vendors and event goers for another iteration of this storied biannual event, which raises money for the Rotary Club of Winters Community Foundation.
Scheduled wineries include Coppola Wines, Grgich Hills Estate, Rutherford and many, many others. In addition to hosting food and wine vendors, Rotary also hosts a silent auction. Tickets cost $60 per person and can be purchased from any Rotarian, in town at Pacific Ace Hardware and First Northern Bank, and online at https://tinyurl.com/nfmuf7yr. Hotel guests receive a 20 percent discount on their stay that night.
“For the community and community foundation here in Winters, the Rotary Food & Wine Gala is a memorable night together,” said Rotary president Tay Buley. “Not only do attendees get a great experience, but they get to know that every dollar we raise goes back into community efforts like Project Playground and Winters Healthcare.”
“Our focus is now on fundraising for the forthcoming Winters Senior Center,” Buley added, “Jessicca Kilkenny and team are planning yet another one of our storied evenings for our friends and neighbors to help us make it happen.”
Button Transportation, Carbahal & Co. Double M Trucking, First Northern Bank and Vintage Paving are sponsoring the event. The event is made possible by Hotel Winters and, especially, Rotarian John Lorenzo of Lorenzo’s Market, who join in sponsorship.
