The Fund for Vineyard and Farm Workers was established in 2004 by Brian and Johnine Talley to provide grants to organizations that assist San Luis Obispo County agricultural workers and their families. Mano Tinta wine is the key fundraising effort for the Fund for Vineyard and Farm Workers. Mano Tinta (“Red Hand” in Spanish) was chosen to signify the pride and commitment of farm workers to their craft. All of the grapes, materials, and services used to make Mano Tinta wines are donated and all of the profit benefits the Fund for Vineyard and Farm Workers. The artwork on the label is selected through an annual revolving artist competition.
Join us on Sunday, March 3 for a discussion by Brian Talley on the Mano Tinta project and sample the Mano Tinta wines.
