El Mirador Wine Challenge

Wine expert John Tilson
Honoring 2015 Person of Purpose
Dr. Thomas J. McCool, Ed.D.
In 1976, the Judgement of Paris wine competition shocked the world when California wines took first place, winning over the top French wineries. Acclaimed wine connoisseur John Tilson creates our own competition, with four California wines and four French wines vying for the crème de la crème. Discover these exquisite wines and cast your own votes at our Soirée!
Held in the extraordinary gardens of El Mirador, the event includes a four-course dinner paired with two wines with each course, one Californian and one French, as well as fabulous raffle items and live music.
All proceeds support Hillside House, a home and therapeutic learning community for people with developmental disabilities. Your generosity helps to foster meaningful, healthy lives for our residents, who need our community's support to thrive.
Join us for a delightful and spirited summer evening in the magical gardens of El Mirador Estate in Montecito—made possible through the generosity of owner Tita Lanning—and help foster the dreams and abilities of the 59 exceptional people who live and learn at Hillside House.
