Inspire Napa Valley

The inaugural Inspire Napa Valley Wine Weekend got its start over the, uh, weekend. It was a three-day affair featuring the absolute premiere wine experience I've ever photographed.


INV is not all about the wine, the food, or the fun. It's main purpose is to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association. And raise money they did...about $1 million.


The weekend started on Friday night with dinner at David Abreau's Las Posadas vineyard in Angwin. Saturday's events included a wine tasting and discussion with Antonio Galloni at Press restaurant then the dinner/auction held at the Culinary Institute. A Sunday brunch at Thomas Keller's Addendum concluded the weekend.


So honored to be part of it.
