The Brander Vineyard to Host ‘Harvest for Hospice of Santa Barbara’

Afternoon benefit event featuring wine, food and music will support local bereavement services

The Brander Vineyard, 2401 N. Refugio Road in Los Olivos, will host a harvest afternoon of wine, food, music and vineyard vistas from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24 to benefit Hospice of Santa Barbara’s local services.

“We’re thrilled to be involved in the celebration of Brander Vineyard’s annual harvest,” Hospice of Santa Barbara Executive Director Steve Jacobsen said. “In addition to providing an opportunity to enjoy local wine, food and entertainment, Harvest for Hospice of Santa Barbara is supporting the emotional, spiritual and practical needs of the terminally ill and their families in our community.”

Harvest for Hospice of Santa Barbara guests will enjoy a gourmet hors d’oeuvres reception catered by Ca Dario, accompanied by handcrafted, world-class wines from Brander Winery, while soaking in the vineyard vista views to the music of local Latin guitarist Anthony Ybarra.

Doug Macmillian, acclaimed chef recognized for his award-winning Cioppino, will provide a cooking demonstration as an exclusive preview of the Bouillabaisse Festival, which will return in May 2012 after a hiatus of a few years, and will support Hospice of Santa Barbara.

In addition, there will be selected silent auction items, including a Winemaker’s Dinner for eight hosted by The Brander Vineyard. Each guest will receive an etched wine glass commemorating the event.

Tickets are $125. To purchase tickets, click here or call 805.563.8820. All proceeds benefit Hospice of Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
