I was honored to participate in the event celebrating Joseph George Wines’ 70th anniversary at Villa Montalvo, Saratoga. Only Joseph George could unite all the top vintners to participate in a single event – perhaps you may recognize some of the names: Duckhorn, Goldeneye, Paraduxx, DuMol, Far Niente, Flora Springs, Lewis, Melka Wines, Miner Family, Miura, Patz & Hall, Paul Hobbs, Portfolio, Pride Mountain, Robert Biale Vineyards, Robert Foley, Spottswoode, Switchback Ridge, Viader and more all brought their goods to be samples by the invited guests.
Le Papillon, who I’ve worked with many times over the years, were catering the event and hosted a special 5-course wine-paired dinner after the tasting event was over. Heidieh and her crew with Flower Affairs did an amazing job with the floral arrangements. Many of Silicon Valley’s elite were in attendance, thoroughly enjoying the fine wines, delectable appetizers and of course, the unparalleled beauty of the Montalvo estate.
I captured the event in my usual fashion – plenty of candids, posed groups, details, environmentals and food photos. I included some of my favorites in the slideshow below.
