Any excuse to visit Doffo Winery in beautiful Temecula, California, is a good excuse, but raising money for the Kurt Caselli Foundation is an excellent one. More than 500 people attended last year’s event and raised over $15,000 for the foundation.

This year’s event will again feature more than 150 rare, vintage and contemporary motorcycles from the MotoDoffo Vintage Motorcycle Collection as well as from special guests and sponsors. Attendees can enjoy the Doffo grounds, where a vendor row, live music and movie screenings will provide entertainment. For 2106, a special performance by Red Bull Trials Champion Geoff Aaron will also be part of the program.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase, and items donated by vendors and sponsors will be raffled off and up for auction. Doffo Winery has also created a limited edition Kurt Caselli tribute wine, which will be available for purchase at the event. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Kurt Caselli Foundation.

“This event means a lot to the Doffo family,” said Damian Doffo, Vice President and Winemaker at Doffo Winery. “Our entire family rides motorcycles, and our children will ride and race, so we feel strongly about rider safety. We’re honored to help support the Kurt Caselli Foundation in their mission to improve safety in off-road riding and racing.”

The foundation has a three-part mission that encompasses safety precautions for riders before, during, and after a racing career.

About Doffo Wines: The Doffo Family’s philosophy has always been that good winemaking begins in the vineyard. The meticulous care and attention that Doffo Winery gives its grapes on a daily basis results in rich, intense wines that can be enjoyed immediately or aged for a special wine drinking experience. A unique feature of the beautiful Doffo grounds is the MotoBarrel Room that is home to barrel-aging wines and the MotoDoffo Vintage Motorcycle Collection. Learn more at
