Festival Gala and Auction at Meadowood Napa Valley

Festival Gala and Auction at Meadowood Napa Valley

Festival del Sole's Seventh Annual Gala and Auction promises a night of glamour, sportsmanship and discovery.

This year's theme, "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow," will reveal itself to arriving guests, who can marvel at vintage automobiles and modern luxury cars.

The glorious evening opens with a reception featuring Keller Estate’s Sparkling Brut, followed by the First Annual Meadowood Vintner’s Challenge Cup on the estate’s championship croquet lawns. Napa vintners donate $1,000 per mallet to compete in this special croquet match, which will conclude in a generous $5,000 prize from Meadowood to be donated to the festival in the winning vintner’s name.

Afterwards, guests will indulge in an alfresco dinner on the fairways featuring an elegant, golden era menu, paired with Caymus, Mer Soleil and other superb wines provided by the Wagner Family of Wine.

During dinner, guests will be treated to a special performance by jazz vocalist Antoinette Costa, cellist/beatboxer Kevin Olusola and pianist/violinist Tara Kamangar.

The evening concludes with Fritz Hatton conducting a high-energy live auction of one-of-a-kind luxury lifestyle lots benefiting Festival del Sole.

Dinner jackets for gentlemen, elegant white or golden era-inspired attire for the ladies.

Let the games begin!
