Festival del Sole’s Annual Gala at Meadowood Napa Valley promises an evening worthy of the Great Gatsby himself. Glamour, world class croquet, jazz, and an elegant dinner on the lawn all conspire to transport guests back to the Roaring Twenties, and make this year’s gala the event of the season.
Beginning with an elegant reception alongside Meadowood’s championship croquet lawns, guests will be welcomed with a glass of Domaine Carneros sparkling wine and be called to dinner by the Russian National Orchestra Percussion Ensemble. As the sun softens in the western sky, guests will imbibe the beauty of this 250-acre private wooded estate while witnessing an exhibition croquet match.
An alfresco dinner on the fairways follows, featuring an exquisite pairing of Meadowood cuisine with hand-selected Lokoya and Intrada wines, including a library vintage. Captivating jazz performances by the Concord Jazz All Stars, before and after the meal, will feature the talent of Monica Mancini, Tom Scott, Shelly Berg, Brian Nova and Gregg Field. The evening will conclude with a high energy live auction of one-of-a-kind experiential lots benefiting Festival del Sole, local arts education programs and other charities.
Gatsby-inspired attire is the evening’s dress. Dinner jackets for gentlemen, elegant white for the ladies. Event takes place on the greens at Meadowood; shoes for the lawn are recommended.
Concert is part of the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Vocal Arts Series
