Mark your calendars for the 28th Annual A Celebration Of Wine™! This event, held every first Sunday in June, is an enjoyable afternoon of wine tasting at the scenic Borba Family's Rancho Vista del Rio on the San Joaquin River and benefits the Vincent E. Petrucci Library at California State University, Fresno. This year, approximately 80 wineries will be pouring and nearly 40 of the Valley's best restaurants will be providing their delicious cuisine, so come hungry and ready to enjoy some great vino!
As well as enjoying great wines and foods, take part in Central California's premier silent wine auction! Every year, participants bid on collectible and award winning wines as well as gift baskets, private tasting parties, gift certificates, wine accessories and even vacation packages. This year, don't miss out on this fun event and perhaps take home one of our fabulous auction items. Presented by the CSUF Viticulture & Enology Alumni Association, all proceeds benefit the Vincent E. Petrucci Library, a research library available to students and the public alike. In addition, funds raised also go to scholarships and assistance-ships for students in the Viticulture & Enology programs at CSUF.
Other festivities at this year's event include a cooperage demonstration by Barrel's Unlimited, a coffee and desserts section and live music by Fresno's own Joe Lenigan Band. Dancing isn't mandatory but is encouraged! Also included with your ticket is a chance to win the Fine Art Drawing. This year, event artist Brad Boling has donated a beautiful framed giclée so don't miss out!
