A wine sales fundraiser for winemaker Katy Lovell is being held from May 25 – May 27, 2013.
The benefit for Lovell of Poetic Cellars will be held over Memorial Day weekend at several locations in Los Gatos and Saratoga, including The Summit Store at 24197 Summit Road, just past Burrell School Winery; Ruthe Roberts Wine Collective, 14510 Big Basin Way, Saratoga, and Rootstock Wine Bar, 217 N. Santa Cruz Ave, Los Gatos. Poetic Cellars will also be open Saturday and Sunday from noon till 5 p.m. and closed on Monday in observance of the Memorial Day holiday.
Some of you know Katy as an accomplished winemaker in the business for nearly 20 years. One of only two women winemakers in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Katy has been an accomplished vintner for over 20 years, with prior careers as a musician and fiber artist. A busy mother of three, Katy was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and is putting up a tremendous fight. She has three kids in college, and wants to stick around!
