Women in Wine for Change
One of the very last off-site events we did last year happened to be in March, right before our world seemed to stop. It was March 5th, 2020, and it was a Guest Chef Dinner at Plates Café and Catering, benefitting Saint John’s Program for Real Change.
Saint John’s mission is to break the cycle of homelessness, poverty and abuse for women and their children. The program is more than a shelter; it is a live-in eighteen month program that teaches work and life skills in a safe environment. They also offer mental health therapy, drug and alcohol counseling, healthy relationship services, and hands-on employment training.

The women of Saint John’s worked side-by-side with our culinary team to prep, cook, and serve the event. The entire evening was an incredible experience. I was moved by the culinary skills demonstrated, speeches orated, and time spent with friends and fundraisers of Saint John’s.
I was so inspired in that moment, that I want to make sure everyone in Sacramento knows about Saint John’s and the work they do in our community. So, allow me to introduce our theme at Allora for the month of March - Women in Wine for Change. In an attempt to fundraise as well as showcase women’s talents, I have adapted my wine list to highlight women owned wineries and woman winemakers, and $2 from every sale will go directly to Saint John’s.
In addition to our fundraiser in house, our March Wine Club will also showcase women owned wineries and women winemakers. There are countless talented women making profound wines in Italy, and I look forward to sharing them with you.
