Join the California Association of Winegrape Growers Foundation (CAWGF) for their 17th annual Gala on Wednesday, March 18th in downtown Sacramento. This year we will be taking a tour through California with a spectacular lineup of wines, paired with exquisite cuisine prepared by Brasserie Capitale. Guests will enjoy the pairing of five small dishes with hand selected wines that represent the landscape of California. At each step along the way you will hear from the chef and winery about the perfectly crafted dishes and wine.
Enjoying wine together gives us a connection with the place in which the wine was crafted and the people who make California wine a unique symbol of our state. It is only natural that the CAWG Foundation was started as an expression of gratitude to the employees who help make the winegrape and wine community a special part of California culture.
Since 1998, the CAWG Foundation has provided scholarship to high school seniors whose parent or legal guardian is the employee of a California vineyard owner. Since the Foundations inception, it has awarded $464,500 to deserving children of CA vineyard employees.
We invite you to support those who have worked to make California wine and the industry what it is today. There are many ways that you can make a difference – sponsor, donate an item for the auction, contribute wine, or simply purchase a ticket and enjoy the evening with us!
