The Korbel Champagne Preview, Wine Tasting & Auction has come to be identified with the Soroptimists International of Mendocino-Sonoma Coast, Inc., (SIMSC) Architectural Tour  that happens each year on Mothers Day weekend.  The SIMSC Architectural Tour is a self-guided tour of new, newly remodeled, and historically significant homes on the northern Sonoma and southern Mendocino Coast at The Sea Ranch, and homes in Anchor Bay.

The Gualala Arts wine tasting and auction is the premier wine event on the Sonoma Mendocino coast, featuring award winning wineries pouring a wide selection of their premium wines. Over 100 wine related auction lots will be available for silent bidding both days of the event. The Wine Tasting & Auction is hosted at the Gualala Arts Center, an architectural gem nestled in the redwoods with a dramatic auditorium and foyer.

The Korbel Champagne Preview is an elegant evening of wine tasting and an opportunity to place early bids on wine lots and check out all of the raffle prizes and art exhibits.

The Wine Auction Raffle is always fun and exciting, featuring award-winning artwork and more than $500 in wine and wine related items.  Artist Sandy Ostrau has once again agreed to donate one of her spectacular paintings for the raffle. See Sandys work at sandyostra.com.

An intuitive artist who loves paint as a substance  and who has a tendency to obliterate her imagery with painterly gestures  Ostrau doesnt go all the way to abstraction. To do so would remove the emotional connection she wants viewers to have with her source material. Im not a fully abstract painter, she explains: I want people to feel the landscape.  John Seed, Huffington Post

Everything starts with the Korbel Champagne Preview the Friday before the auction, where people have a chance to put in early bids and view the wines, raffle items, and art exhibits before the tasting on Saturday. Many local wineries and businesses donate premium auction lots such as bottles of award-winning wines, wine related gifts, luxurious lodging packages, golf packages, winery tours, and other great items. Make what you hope to be winning bids on your favorites, knowing that the proceeds will help promote public interest and participation in the arts.  Attend the Korbel Champagne Preview and place your bids early! The champagne preview is free but please make reservations.

To purchase in person, visit the Gualala Arts Center or Dolphin Gallery in Gualala.
