Luna Vineyards is extending a big thank you to all of our guests who joined us this past Sunday at our Wine Country Benefit in partnership with Free Flow Wines. Through ticket proceeds, silent auction bidding, and wine bottle purchases we have raised nearly $8,000 for the Northern California Wildfire Relief Effort! These proceeds will be donated to the Napa Valley Community Foundation, a local nonprofit dedicated to supporting those who have lost homes, wineries, businesses, and livelihoods in the Napa and Sonoma County fires.
We certainly had a great time eating, drinking, and being merry for this wonderful cause. Luna Estate Chef Mercedes Stahlberger prepared a seasonal menu of wine-paired appetizers including truffle butter popcorn, goat cheese ratatouille tarts, and curried lamb meatballs. The party was serenaded by acoustic guitarist, Justin Brown, and guests had fun with playful holiday photo props.
Excitedly, Luna released our Howell Mountain wine series to the public during the event. Our 2014 Howell Mountain Merlot is now featured in our Reserve Tasting and our 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon remains a special allotment to our wine club members.
Help Luna Vineyards get to a $10,000 donation by shopping our wines. 10% of each bottle sale will continue to be donated to the Napa Valley Community Foundation through the end of the year.
