The Circle of Hope (661)-254-5218; www.circleofhopeinc.org announces the rebirth of the Wine Classic!!
The next Vine 2 Wine CLASSIC is scheduled for Saturday evening, August 18, inside the City of Santa Clarita’s Activities Center, 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway, from 6:30 to 10:00 p.m.
Now named the Vine 2 Wine CLASSIC, and in its eleventh year, this blockbuster of an event combines the highlights of the previous Vine 2 Wine, which had been sponsored for nine years by the Betty Ferguson Foundation, and the Santa Clarita Valley Wine Classic, which had been sponsored by College of the Canyons for twenty years, attracting more than 50 wineries and 750 people, until it was discontinued several years ago.
Last year’s Vine 2 Wine CLASSIC, which features unlimited tastings of upscale wines (and of beers in the Beer Garden, as well as delicious foods) for the single price of admission, had 40 tables where more than one hundred different wines were poured, including dozens of rare, older “library” wines. It attracted a crowd of approximately 500 people and was held in the Mann Biomedical Park. This year, we are moving the event indoors and expecting a larger crowd, for an elegant evening of wines, beers, foods, live music, a raffle of expensive, rare and desirable wines, a silent auction, and much, much more.
The Circle of Hope will also be featuring tastes of Vintage 1863 Madeira – grown and harvested while Abraham Lincoln was giving the Gettysburg Address. Madeira was the favorite wine during Colonial America.
For further information about the Vine 2 Wine CLASSIC, including the availability of tickets, and how you can purchase a taste of that extremely rare and unforgettable 1863 Madeira (a limited number of tastes of this amazing wine will be available for donations to the Circle of Hope) simply log onto the Circle of Hope’s website, www.circleofhopeinc.org. We are just now beginning to print our advertising materials and tickets, and to add website information, so please be patient.
