A Western Affair 2019

We’re thrilled to announce A Western Affair 2019 at Wente Vineyards! Join California Rangeland Trust for an unforgettable evening celebrating ranching conservation.

In California we love fresh foods and great wines. While we may perceive that ranchers and vintners will specialize in one or the other, many have found ways to nurture both cattle and vine in harmony. Furthermore, both contribute significantly to our economy, are stewards of healthy soils, and provide the iconic landscapes we enjoy.

With the California Rangeland Trust turning 21 in 2019, naturally we decided to hold our signature event at a vineyard to celebrate this mutual love of land and conservation. We are partnering with Wente Vineyards in Livermore – founded by a family with a long and rich history in both wine making and ranching – to highlight the connection between two major sectors of California agriculture.

And since red meat and red wine go so well together, we’ll have a culinary experience like no other at A Western Affair 2019.
