Sansum Diabetes Research Institute (SDRI) is pleased to announce another exciting event in its 2018 winemaker dinner series of fundraisers, raising awareness and supporting diabetes research. 

Chef Luca Crestanelli of S.Y. Kitchen in Santa Ynez and winemaker Ernst Storm of Storm Wines and Notary Public Wines are teaming up to create an extraordinary dining experience, “Dinner with the Winemaker at S.Y. Kitchen,” Thursday, May 17th at 6 p.m. 

All proceeds will benefit SDRI to support research, education and care for those impacted by diabetes. 

A native of Verona, Italy, Chef Crestanelli, modernized authentic Northern Italian cuisine and five years after opening in the heart of Santa Ynez has the hottest restaurant in town. The talented chef personally sources his seasonal produce from nearby farms and everything is made from scratch; from wild mushroom pappardelle to spaghetti with clams to spinach ricotta gnocchi. The contemporary restaurant, set in a sprawling California farmhouse in downtown Santa Ynez, is equally stylish and comfortable. 

Brilliant Santa Barbara County winemaker Ernst Storm studied winemaking in his native South Africa. He arrived in California in 2003 to produce world-class, cool climate, pinot noir and sauvignon blanc, soon launching his own highly regarded label, Storm Wines. Storm’s second wine label, Notary Public, focuses on cabernet sauvignon and chenin blanc from eastern Santa Barbara County. Wine critics−as well as savvy consumers−have taken notice of Storm’s stellar wines. 

Chef Luca and Ernst are collaborating with SDRI to design an unforgettable evening of highly sought after wines, expertly paired with innovative Italian cuisine, to benefit Sansum Diabetes Research Institute. 

Guests who attend will also have the rare opportunity to purchase Storm Wines at a generous discount.
