Aged to Perfection - Soirée du Vin 2024


The theme 'Aged to Perfection' beautifully intertwines the journey of wine with the celebration of our school's remarkable 45 years of excellence. Like fine wine, our school has matured, evolved, and enriched the lives of all who have been a part of it. Each bottle of wine embodies a unique narrative, starting from the moment the first grapevine is planted, to the meticulous care during fermentation, and culminating in the exquisite flavors that enchant our palates.
Join us for an delightful evening of wine tastings, a wine-paired gourmet dinner, and an exciting live auction of unique experiences and exclusive wine Lots, as Soirée du Vin celebrates this year the art of aging gracefully, a testament to both fine wine and our enduring institution.

2024 Guest Speaker - Sam Lando from LANDO Wines

LANDO Wines was founded by longtime industry veteran Sam Lando in the summer of 2012. After working for eighteen years with some of Sonoma's most distinguished and sought-after Pinot-focused wine brands, Sam decided it was time to venture out on his own. He had spent many years learning every nuance of the business and engaging in hobby winemaking before taking the leap. His vision was to create a family business winery that could be passed down through generations.

This new venture was not the result of a career change after success in another industry; it was born from hard work, sweat, and tears. In 2012, the Landos liquidated their 401k to purchase three tons of Pinot and six used barrels to get started. They do not own a winery or vineyards, yet their passion and dedication have driven their success.

For over thirty years, the Russian River Valley has been home to the Landos, and this is where they have been growing their wine brand for the past twelve years. The diverse soils and microclimates of this renowned appellation allow them to produce intense yet elegant Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines of exceptional quality. They work closely with some of the most talented grape growers in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast appellations to source exceptional grapes for their wines.

LANDO Wines are offered for sale only twice a year, for three weeks each spring and fall, to their mailing list customers. The Landos also participate in major charity wine auctions across the country, allowing them to raise funds for incredible causes and meet wonderful people who appreciate their wines.

Live Auction Lots

The live auction features trips, dinners, and unique experiences, as well as wine lots carefully selected by Soiree du Vin's Steering Committee.

Your Support Matters

Soirée du Vin aims to maintain the status of Silicon Valley’s premier wine auction. To accomplish this, we look for community partners who not only appreciate gourmet food and fine wines, but also seek to support the mission of an educational institution like the Silicon Valley International School (INTL).

INTL's focus on inquiry and bilingualism empowers young minds to embrace complexity, think critically from multiple perspectives, and demonstrate integrity and sensitivity across cultures.

Soirée du Vin is a benefit for INTL's Charlotte de Géry Endowment Fund. By supporting Soirée du Vin, you are helping to ensure that INTL is able to continue its mission indefinitely. Raise a glass at Soirée du Vin, and support the students of the Silicon Valley International School.
