Women Winemakers Dinner

Start Date:

End Date:

K'Syrah Catering & Events
CA United States

With a higher percentage of female winemakers than most of the world’s wine regions, Santa Barbara Wine Country has much to celebrate on International Women’s Day, which focuses on working women. Our belief is that our wines shine with great food and good company, and we invite you to join us “at the table”.

Expect 20+ women winemakers pouring their wines in a pre-dinner tent reception, and at the wine-paired dinner: a 4-course feast prepared by some of the area’s best female chefs, restaurateurs and food crafters, including Chef Brooke Stockwell (Executive Chef, K’Syrah Catering & Events), baker Amy Dixon (The Baker’s Table, Santa Ynez), Chef Cynthia Miranda (The Lucky Hen Larder, Santa Ynez), Chef Golzar Meamar of the Santa Ynez Valley’s All Purpose Flower, Chef Louise Smith (Louise’s Kitchen Table and To-Go at The Castle, in Solvang), Theo Stephan (Los Olivos’ Global Gardens), Leyla Williams and the team at Solvang’s Good Seed Coffee Boutique, and TV celebrity Chef Pink (Root 246, Solvang). Additional 2019 culinary participants — female Santa Ynez Valley chefs and food makers — will be announced as the event nears.

In addition to the seated dinner portion of the evening, this year’s event will once again feature a tent on a closed-to-traffic street in front of K’Syrah’s downtown Solvang venue. Housed inside the tent, nearly two dozen women winemakers who will be on-hand to pour tastes of their wines and talk with event guests during the pre-dinner tasting reception (5:30 PM to 7:30 PM), to include passed appetizers, a cheese table, and live music.

A VIP-level ticket for this year’s event will include both the tasting tent and the seated dinner, where guests will be treated to wine pairings by, and conversation with, an exclusive selection of some of Santa Barbara County’s female winemakers, who will also be announced in the coming weeks. A dessert reception will follow the seated dinner, where guests may continue to mingle with the winemakers.

{Please Note: Discounted ‘designated driver’ tickets are available upon request.}

*** All event profits will benefit the Womens Fund of Northern Santa Barbara County.***
