Bailey’s Continues Tradition as Wine Partner for Wines in the Wild 2020

October 15, 2020

SCCF is thinking out of the box for this year’s Wines in the Wild fundraiser, coming on Nov. 13. Instead of hosting a live event at the Bailey Homestead, this year’s Wines will be a homeINstead evening.

“Wine and food have always brought people together to share good times,” said Wines in the Wild co-creator Tom Uhler, pictured above with Calli Johnson at Bailey’s. “When we realized that we could not gather in person for this our 13th year, we wanted to find a way to still allow people to enjoy the food, wine and fun that have become the hallmarks of our event. So we’ve created a party box filled with everything needed to celebrate Wines in the Wild at your own home instead of the Bailey Homestead.”

The boxes are available now by pre-order for touchless drive-by pickup at the Homestead on Nov. 13. Priced at $210 per couple and $130 per single, each box will include a bottle of white and a bottle of red wine chosen by Bailey’s General Store, food from the kitchens of Cielo, Catering by Leslie Adams, Spoondrift and Sweet Melissa’s Cafe, and other celebratory elements

Diamond Sponsors Paul and Lucy Roth, pictured here, expressed appreciation for the participation of Bailey’s. “Under Calli Johnson’s leadership, Bailey’s has truly become a ‘go-to’ wine destination. It is incredibly generous of them to once again contribute to this year’s event as the Wine Sponsor.”

A new feature of this year’s fundraiser is a very special “50/50 + 10 Drawing”. In addition to the traditional 50/50 cash drawing, there is the chance to win one of ten lots of five bottles of wine, each lot valued at no less than $160. As an added bonus, each $100 purchase will get one chance for a drawing for a magnum of 2008 Dom Perignon worth $550. Tickets are $25 or five for $100.
