San Vicente Valley Club members invite the community to join them at their 30th annual fundraising home tour on Saturday, May 12.
This year the club has added two wineries to its tour, making it a Home and Winery Tour. The day will start at 9 a.m. at San Vicente Resort, 24157 San Vicente Road, where the Arts and Crafts Faire will be held outdoors, and the Bake Shoppe and high-end collectibles will be inside. Opportunity baskets will be on display in the resort, with drawings for the baskets scheduled for 4 p.m.
A no-host Luncheon and Fashion Show will be from noon to 1:30 p.m.
Home and Winery Tour tickets are $10 each, with guests invited to tour Debbie and Jim Garcia’s home on Pappas Road from 10 a.m. to noon.
“If you’re a quilter and a fan of color, this home is a must-see,” said Claudia Weringa, the club’s publicity chair.
Also on the tour are two wineries, which will be open from 1 to 4 p.m. Jennifer Jenkins, owner of Pamo Valley Winery on Black Canyon Road, will open the grounds and barrel room, where visitors can enjoy barrel wine tasting and snacks at no additional cost with their ticket.
“All this is nestled in a beautiful valley surrounded by magnificent mountains,” said Weringa.
Diane and Mario Bergeron’s La Finquita Winery on Vista Ramona Street will be open for tours of their wine cave and the opportunity to taste their wines for $5, which is half off with the tour ticket.
Mario’s etched glass logos will be on display.
“Mario and Diane have put together a wine basket that you will have a chance to win,” noted Weringa.
The day is not over. After the tour, everyone is welcome to return to San Vicente Resort for more shopping. Entertainment featuring Bob Anderson will begin at 4 p.m., and guests will be invited to enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine specials at $3 a glass, less than happy hour prices, at 4:30 p.m. San Vicente Resort will provide dinner specials for $9.99 per meal in the dining room.
The opportunity basket drawings will be held at 4:30 in the resort. Opportunity drawing tickets are $1 each, six for $5, 12 for $10 and 30 for $20.
Tour tickets at $10 each are available in advance at San Vicente Resort at 24157 San Vicente Road, Pamo Valley Winery at 603 Main St., Ramona Beauty Supply & Salon at 620 Main St., The Crazy 9 Patch Quilt Shop at 2260 Main St. or by calling Joan Renaud at 760-788-6960. Tickets can also be purchased the day of the event at San Vicente Resort, the Garcia home or the wineries.
All proceeds will go toward scholarships for Ramona’s graduating high school seniors and and community projects.
