Dr. Tom Kenefick was a practicing neurosurgeon in San Francisco when he first visited Napa Valley in 1970. He fell in love with the area and eight years later bought his remarkable property, a 250-acre Calistoga Ranch. Tucked into the foothills of the craggy Palisades, the ranch looks out to the beautiful valley.

Now retired from medicine, Tom’s hands on approach drives every aspect of the vineyard operation. His scientific training, viticulture classes, and his interest in wine, particularly Bordeaux varietals, have enabled him to produce highly-rated award winning wines. Dr. Kenefick is a member of our IWFS chapter. To keep the costs of the event reasonable, Tom has generously offered to underwrite a significant portion of the cost of the fabulous wines he will serve at this event.

You will sit beneath mountain peaks, surrounded by vineyards next to a free form pool to enjoy a perfect evening of sublime award winning wines and delicious food.

Our meal will be prepared by Executive Chef Collin Custis from Brannan’s Restaurant.

Suggested dress is country casual. Bring a sweater or jacket as temperatures will drop as the evening progresses.
