How It Works



We’re still doing things differently right now to care for one another and keep our community safe. But the show must go on so that, together, we can continue to make sure every child, every senior, every family, every neighbor has the food they need through these challenging times. 

Our 20th year of Empty Bowls will STILL include the most important things:  that’s you (we hope!) and our purpose.  And there will still be beautiful handcrafted pottery bowls. And soups, of course! We will miss gathering with you, as we support our community and enjoy this beloved event; but we will be keeping you safe by having you  purchase tickets in advance online and pick up your soup, bread, and dessert from the comfort of your car.

Wine Selection

(Benefactor Level Tickets)

2019 RayLen Vineyards

Category 5

RayLen’s flagship red, Category 5, is our most favored wine amongst our guests.  Featuring five of our red varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot, this wine packs a hurricane’s punch.  It finishes with ample tannins and balanced acidity making it the perfect wine for your prime rib family dinner. The bouquet on the 2019 has spicy oak with vanilla and caramel notes that lead to raspberry and blackberry flavors.  The tannins open up in the mid pallet and carry the flavor with every sip.

Rosé of Cabernet Franc

The 2019 Rosé of Cabernet Franc is a bright, glimmering salmon color with notes of fresh strawberry and raspberry aromas.  The flavors glide smooth with cherry fruit flavors and are balanced with a sense of richness.  The finish is dry and crisp.

2019 RayLen Vineyards

Barrel Chardonnay

The 2018 Barrel fermented Chardonnay has continued to evolve and mature in the cellar. To the RayLen family, it is approaching prime.  In another 6-12 months this wine will crest it’s peak, but only if you can wait that long.  


The 2018 Barrel Chardonnay is drinking now like a reserve.  The rich golden color invites aromas of tropical papaya and pineapple laced with slight oak and vanillin undertones.  The complete Malo-Lactic fermentation consumes the sharp malic acid (the acid in Green Apples, too) yielding a creamy butter texture.  We also experienced during the tasting a tad of orange fruit in the mid pallet that finishes with a nice bright smooth acidity.
