Napa & Sonoma Relief Dinner

On December 2nd, we were honored to be a part of a very special evening, celebrating together our love for the land, our neighbors and friends. Our very own Chef Christopher Kostow along with Thomas Keller, Kyle Connaughton and Stephen Durfee orchestrated an extraordinary dinner following a reception of canapés prepared by over a dozen of the most talented chefs from Sonoma and Napa. The event raised over 3.4 million dollars to assist those affected most by the recent Wine Country wildfires. 


To complement this memorable meal, the finest Napa and Sonoma wines were served by top sommeliers from the regions. Wineries shared treasures from their cellars to commemorate this special evening. Following dinner, a beautifully-curated live auction took place featuring rare wines and once-in-a-lifetime experiences along with a musical performance by local legend Boz Scaggs.


Thanks to those of you who came together to heal and restore our most wounded neighborhoods in Sonoma, Napa and surrounding areas affected by the devastating wine country fires. Every dollar raised contributes to the healing of our region.
