As you know, there are no shortage of events here in the Napa Valley.

In a couple weeks, the annual ‘Forever Young’ benefit will take place at Quintessa in Rutherford.

The 11th annual fundraiser will benefit The Young School, which is a private non-profit non-denominational Montessori-derived program for children ages 6 – 12 years old (1st – 6th grades).

In addition to hors d’oeuvres and other items from Tra Vigne Restaurant, there will be silent and live auctions of some pretty sweet items. Here’s a sampling:

  • A collection of wines from 23 “red hot mamas,” women winemakers in Napa Valley (wines include Corison, Corra, Drinkward-Peschon, Failla, Rasmussen, Oakville Ranch, Phifer Pavitt and more)
  • A private tour of Napa wineries conducted by Wine Bible author and CIA instructor Karen MacNeil
  • A pheasant hunt with architect Peter Collins and vintner Stu Smith
  • A collection of wines from the Howell Mountain appellation (Cakebread, CADE, Dunn, Ladera, Lamborn, Outpost, Retro, Turley)
  • A Cabernet Franc adventure at Cindy’s Back Street Kitchen with the proprietors of Lang & Reed
