Having Fun and Protecting Farmland go Hand-in-Hand

California Farmland Trust (CFT) is excited to announce a fun-filled evening of painting, sipping, and protecting farmland at their Sunset Vine Paint and Wine event Friday, Sept. 20 at Bokisch Vineyards from 4-7pm in Lodi.

Watch the sunset over the grapevines at the beyond-beautiful Bokisch Vineyards. Sip a glass of award-winning Spanish varietal wine and munch on tasty tapas (that’s Spanish for appetizers). All while, of course, making your own incredible painting of the view – no artistic talent or experience needed.

“The painting will be led by Lindsey Liberman of Pinot’s Palette. You will be surprised at your abilities by the end of your experience,” said Melanee Cottrill, Associate Director for California Farmland Trust. “Lindsey will walk you through every step and all materials will be provided. All you need to do is get inspired by the incredible sunset, enjoy the amazing award-winning wines, and have a good time.”

All proceeds from the event will directly benefit farmland conservation and protect the farms that feed your family. CFT’s mission is to protect the best farmland in the world –the very land you will be sitting upon and gazing at as you paint and sip.

“Bokisch Vineyards is a long-time supporter of our work and has partnered with us to connect more people to the land and its bounty through this fun event,” continued Cottrill. “The team at Bokisch and their wines are all incredible. Their love of the land is unparalleled and we are grateful to share it with the public at this event.”

“Last year was the first time I’ve ever participated in a Paint and Sip event,” said Liz Bokisch, owner at Bokisch Vineyards. “I have to admit, I was a little nervous at first, but once I got started I thoroughly enjoyed myself! It was fun, easy, relaxing and an all-around feel good moment knowing I was doing my part to support California farmland. What a perfect way to spend an evening!”

Sunset Vine Paint and Wine is perfect for girls night out, date night, or just to try something new in a beautiful place with expert assistance. Join us and do something good for you and the land we all love!
