As a non-profit organization, the mission of the Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta is to create a week of food and wine events that promote Santa Fe as a world-class culinary destination. The Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta Live Auction (this year on Friday September 24th, 2010) raises money for the SFW&C Foundation which sponsors Santa Fe students taking service, wine and cooking classes as well as Santa Fe’s Cooking with Kids program.
These funds come from the revenue generated from wine lots auctioned at the Live Auction Luncheon. Every fall and winter the SFW&C Fiesta Restaurant Education School offers a syllabus consisting of three programs for Santa Fe restaurants and their staff. Intensive six-week sessions are taught by industry leaders in Cooking Skills, Wine Education and Great
By reinvesting resources and education into the Santa Fe restaurant scene, the SFW&C Fiesta Restaurant Education program serves the mission of the Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta – keeping Santa Fe on the map as a world-class culinary destination.
Thank you to all the sponsors, local restaurants and wineries who help to make this happen. And a great thank you to all the food and wine enthusiasts who keep returning to Santa Fe supporting our great restaurants!
