Event History

What began in 2007 as a casual wine tasting gathering in the yard of a Vista Sunrise Kiwanian has, in 11 short years, become one of North San Diego County's premier wine and food events.
 
With the gracious support of Vista's Mr. Ernie Follis and his amazing Pierce-Arrow automobile collection and the use of his home, the Grape Gatsby theme evolved. Now attendees can have photos taken with Prohibition-period automobiles, dress in Gatsby attire F. Scott Fitzgerald would envy, and be treated to some of the best local wine and food in an elegant, unique venue.
 
Nothing this good happens without the dedication of 40 Vista Sunrise Kiwanian's, vendors donating food, wine and time, individual donors and the Vista community at large. 
 
The 2018 Eleventh Annual Benefit evening is expected to draw over 200 people, feature great wineries and the food of  North County restaurants. Add to that a long list of live and silent auction items and dance music playing all evening and it doesn't get any better than this!
 
Don your '20's flapper attire and be part of this year's history!
