Our July event promises to be very special. It will be held on the Estate of our Members Princess Thi-Nga of Vietnam and her husband Mr. Douglas Gallagher. With a shared passion for fine wines, they acquired the Estate and Vineyards located in the prestigious Howell Mountain Appellation, and named it POETIC MOON as a tribute to Princess Thi-Nga, whose first name “Thi-Nga” translates into “Poetic Moon” in English.

Princess Thi-Nga of Vietnam was born in Vietnam, raised in Geneva, Switzerland and Paris, France. Her Paternal Family ruled Vietnam from 1468 until 1945. Mr. Douglas Gallagher was the Founder of Gallagher Financial Systems, a global “Loan Origination Software and Technology Solution” to the top Banks in the US and abroad.

Poetic Moon Estate was conceptualized by Princess Thi-Nga with unique design elements to feature and display over 100 sculptures from Princess Thi-Nga’s priceless Jade Collection, circa 1641-1911.

During the Cocktail hour, while being served exquisite Hors d’Oeuvres and Imperial Jade Sauvignon Blanc, and depending on the number of attendees, Princess Thi-Nga of Vietnam will lead a tour of the Private Jade Collection, and Douglas Gallagher will lead a tour of the Estate.


This will be followed by an outdoor dinner “Under The Stars”, in an enchanting setting by the pool. Princess Thi-Nga has designed this special menu for our members. It was inspired by the Imperial Banquets served at her Family’s Palaces.
