Wine lovers hold tasting to benefit Hinds Hospice

Sunday, July 15, 2012

Fresno's Save Mart Center welcomed hundreds of wine lovers Sunday afternoon during a tasting event benefiting Hinds Hospice.

About 50 wineries from the Valley and beyond participated in The Taste of Vino fundraiser and brought more than 150 wines for visitors to sample.

The event was put on by Fresno's Vino and Friends. The owners say they've put on similar events before but never as a fundraiser.

They say wineries are happy to participate.

"We have wineries from Washington, Paso Robles, Napa, Oregon, all over California... Santa Barbara, everywhere," Chuck van Fleet of Vino and Friends said.

Six restaurants also participated in the 'The Taste of Vino' event.

Proceeds from the tasting and the silent auction will all go to Hinds Hospice.
