When it comes to philanthropy, we love the idea of sipping some of the best vino our Northern neighbors have to offer while making dreams come true for children facing the most important battles of their lives. Assuming most of our readers feel the same, we want to throw out a feel-good weekend activity recommendation, Wishes in Wine Country on May 17. 

For the last 15 years, Make-A-Wish has been working with Sonoma-Cutrer Vineyards to host an event that curates the best food and wine being produced in the area. Sonoma-Cutrer’s impeccable croquet lawns and surrounding vineyards host an annual fundraiser called Wishes in Wine Country, which gathers 40+ wineries and restaurants in one knockout setting, all to benefit Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area (the same folks that brought you Bat Kid). Get your Grand Tasting tickets now! Unfortunately, dinner tickets have sold out.

Also, pre-purchase your Sonoma-Cutrer Founders Reserve Legacy wine online! 100% of the proceeds from which benefit Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area.
