T h e P r e m i e r W i n e A u c t i o n o f t h e S i l i c o n V a l l e y Raise Your Glass & Fund the Future! Join us for a weekend of celebration, wine and giving! Welcome to THE wine auction of Silicon Valley and the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Education Foundation. The Silicon Valley Wine Auction brings together over 100 of the Santa Cruz Mountains top winemakers and growers, along with Silicon Valley leaders – all committed to our children, our community and our future. All proceeds benefit Silicon Valley Education Foundation and STEM Leadership Institute. The Silicon Valley Wine Auction is a great way to find out more about a “best kept secret” –the wines of the Santa Cruz Mountains. It showcases the excellent high quality winemaking taking place in the Silicon Valley area while funding education so that we continue to advance innovators and mavericks in the valley. SVWA 2017 will be held at Runnymede Sculpture Farm, an open-air collection of contemporary sculpture. Runnymede is the product of John and Dodie Rosekrans’ passion for modern three-dimensional art. While the majority of the artists are from the US, there are also works included by artists from Spain, England, Italy, Germany, and France. Situated on 120 acres of hills, creeks, fields, forests and trails, the collection graces the rugged natural beauty of the Peninsula site, bought in 1930 by Alma Spreckels Rosekrans as a home for her jumper horses. It was named for her father’s prized stallion. Runnymede is a family private retreat only open to the public for special events – don’t miss this rare opportunity to visit! At the Taste of the Mountains Grand Wine Tasting guests are invited to sip, sample and bid! This event offers tastings from 40+ Vintners from the Santa Cruz Mountains pouring over 150 wines, an abundance of edible delights and silent auction featuring over 200 wine lots.
