We are pleased to announce our 2021 Holiday Dinner Event to be held at the iconic Buena Vista Winery in Sonoma. Before there were vineyards in every valley north of San Francisco, before Napa and Sonoma were household names, before there was a California wine world at all, there was Buena Vista.

Founded in 1857, Buena Vista is California’s first premium winery, and its history is as colorful as it is proud. Today, the legend is being re-born under the vision of Jean-Charles Boisset whom Forbes Magazine dubbed “The James Bond of Wine”.

Exceptional Wine!
Masterful Food!!
Great Friends!!!

COME DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY!

<<<<<<<<   Special Guests – Jean-Charles Boisset
and Gina Gallo   >>>>>>>>
THIS PROMISES TO BE A “MUST ATTEND” Event
– DON’T MISS OUT! LIMITED CAPACITY SO RSVP NOW!

After the interruption of social events brought on by Covid-19 in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys from 2020 and into the majority of 2021, and on the heels of our recent kickoff of our Cocktail Party held October 16th at Kathye Citron’s lovely residence in Calistoga, what better way to get back to normal than celebrating the Holidays with like-minded friends dedicated to supporting and experiencing great wine and food?

This exclusive event will be held in the banquet room above the Cave. We have also planned a presentation of an  IW&FS award of merit to Jean-Charles Boisset and Gina Gallo for their support of our Branch and food and wine.
