The beautiful Fieldbrook Winery (so we're a little biased) is the setting for Fieldbrook School's largest annual fundraiser, the Fieldbrook Art and Wine Festival on Sept. 26 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. (free admission, no pets, please). With the late September weather as gorgeous as it can be in Humboldt, and picturesque Fieldbrook Valley bathing everything in its lovely sunlight, it's a pretty perfect afternoon of art, wine, food and music. This year's event features barbecued oysters, albacore, chicken and homemade desserts, as well as vino from Fieldbrook Winery and Steelhead Pale Ale on tap from Mad River Brewery. Festival goers can wander the grounds, sip and peruse the local fine arts and crafts booths and check out all the swag up for grabs in the raffles and a silent auction. Lively music by the Spindrifters and others provides the perfect background for a bit of bocce ball.

The cash raised in previous years has gone toward art and language programs, helped purchase new computers for classrooms and established a scholarship fund. And all you have to do is show up and start enjoying the finer things.
