Napa Valley Festival Del Sole - Meadowood Gala

I was lucky enough to be invited to the Festival Gala at Meadowood, one of the many events that occurred over 10 days for the Napa Valley Festival del Sole.  The Festival del Sole is a music and lifestyle festival set in the gorgeous Napa Valley.  They just celebrated their eighth year.  The events range from free family concerts, to brunches and dinners at Napa Valley wineries, Yoga in the Vineyard, musical performances and events that feature 50 of the top wineries and artisanal food purveyors from Napa Valley.

The Festival Gala at the prestigious Meadowood Resort was a Great Gatsby-esque gala (everyone was asked to wear white).  The gala started with sparkling wine while we watched a croquet game and glanced at the items that were auctioned off at the end of the evening.

We then moved down to the fairway to enjoy a deliciously prepared alfresco dinner by the award-winning culinary team at Meadowood.  The three course meal was paired perfectly with wines from Lokoya and Intrada wines.

During the meal we were entertained by the Concord Jazz All Stars and then after the meal we were able to watch the live auction that included some amazing packages.  My favorite package was a week long stay in NYC that included a breakfast at Tiffany & Co. experience!  The auction benefited the local arts education programs and other local charities.

It was a wonderful event and Carlos and I really enjoyed ourselves.  The Festival del Sole is a great opportunity to get a closer look at some of your favorite wineries and local Napa Valley favorites while enjoying the arts.  Next year I would love to attend one of the brunch events at a local winery, take the kids to the one of the family concerts and try out the Yoga in the Vineyard.
