On May 18, Head for the Highlands

Some of the best wines—particularly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir—being made in California.

Thirty-three wineries pouring their wares.

Tasty food.


A “big bottle” silent auction, featuring numerous one-of-a-kind items.

Seriously, how many reasons do you need to attend SLH Gala VII—a.k.a. the 7th annual Santa Lucia Highlands Gala—which is scheduled for Saturday, May 18 from 1 to 4 p.m.?

Okay, here’s one more: The Gala is being held at Mer Soleil Vineyard, an estate that normally is not open to the public.

Over the past six years, the Gala has become one of a handful of “must-do” events for wine lovers. Which makes sense, considering the wines come from a very special American Viticultural Area, which you can read about in thisarchived blog post.

  • August West
