Wine Tasting and Auction only (Architectural Tour NOT included)
IMPORTANT: PLEASE NOTE - THIS $25 TICKET IS ONLY FOR THE WINE TASTING AND AUCTION PORTION OF THE EVENT DESCRIBED BELOW.
Gualala Arts invites you to the Wine Tasting & Auction in conjunction with the Soroptimist International of Mendocino-Sonoma Coast 30th Annual Architectural Tour to be held on Friday and Saturday of Mother's Day weekend, May 9 & 10, 2014.
The Wine Tasting & Auction will be hosted at the Gualala Arts Center, which is an architectural gem nestled in the redwoods with a dramatic auditorium and foyer where the tasting and silent auction is held.
This is the premier wine event on the Sonoma / Mendocino coast, featuring 25 award winning wineries pouring a wide selection of their premium wines. Over 40 wine-related auction lots will be available for your silent bidding both days of the event, with the winning bids being announced at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 10 (need not be present to win).
New this year is a Friday night Hands On Lobster Dinner, a professionally prepared traditional New England Lobster feast spread out on tables in the Gualala Arts Center's beautiful and spacious Coleman Auditorium.
The Saturday Wine Tasting & Auction is the finale to the 30th Annual Architectural Tour that features iconic designs of The Sea Ranch, Gualala, and Southern Mendocino Coast, with an extraordinary and diverse offering of homes that trace the evolution of the North Coast Style from the creations of the original architects to the current modern 'green' representations of "living lightly on the land."
