winefems.jpgCome on over to the warm side of the Santa Cruz Mountains this Sunday, June 28, where from 2-5pm Vino Locale will host a vivacious wine tasting, auction and sales wrapped around some of the top women in local winemaking. The event – a fundraiser for the Women’s Center of Walnut Avenue in Santa Cruz – includes plenty of wine tasting, vineyard sagas and crostini for $25/person.

Look for Val Ahlgren, from Ahlgren Vineyard, Christine Slatter of Hunter Hill, Mary Lindsay from Muns Vineyard, Mary Kay Alfaro from Alfaro Family Winery, Anne Moulton from Burrel School Vineyards, Katy Lovell of Poetic Cellars – and other wine femmes. Learn more than is decent about the behind-the-scenes operations of small, artisanal wineries. You’re bound to discover a new favorite wine. Vino Locale is located at 431 Kipling Street, just off University and across from Zibibbo.
