The Winesong festival takes place every year in Mendocino, California. Enjoy your wine while breathing in the salty sea air and basking in the California sunshine! Held at the Mendocino Botanical Gardens, the venue allows for some of the most spectacular views of the Pacific coast during the event.
What Does Winesong Support?
Winesong Weekend is one of the premier ways Mendocino Coast Hospital Foundation raises money. To date, they have raised over $7.5 million from Winesong. It’s an incredible fundraiser for an incredible cause! The community truly rallies around this fundraiser and it’s amazing to see what they have accomplished. Come prepared to bid on some absolutely stunning items in the Charity Auction!
