April 9 – Foxen Canyon Wineries Hold Food Drive

Foxen Canyon Wineries Hold Food Drive For County Food Bank

From Los Olivos to the Santa Maria Valley, the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail stretches for miles, and in hopes of bringing in more customers the wineries, they are holding a special event.

Tim Snider, of Fess Parker Winery, said, “What we’re trying to do is build awareness again for all these great wineries that are out here and at the same time help the less fortunate
in the community.”

The trail is holding a food drive for the Santa Barbara County Food Bank and those who donate will get something to sip on return.

“They can come on out bring two cans of food and get a complementary wine tasting,”
said Snider.

The Foxen Canyon wineries have done a food drive before, but this time they are
trying to go bigger.

John Tevis, of Foxen, Winery said, “We did a little bit of one last year during Christmas time, but it was just a few wineries. Now we’ve got all the wineries on board and we’re really
taking it to the next level.”

Over a dozen wineries are participating in the drive, which last through April 22, and since it started during March they have already seen the donations rolling in.

“It’s been really well received so far and we are excited about it,” explained Tevis.

The wine trail is hoping this event will bring more people into their tasting rooms,
but most importantly giving back.

The group is planning on holding the drive again next year and is hopeful this event
will be a win-win for everyone.
