Guillaume Fabre, Clos Solène

Last Year's 2020 Special Guest Speaker

Born and raised in the Southeast of France, Narbonne, Guillaume comes from a family of grape growers and winemakers. After 24 years in Narbonne, he moved to Bordeaux. Both regions, famous for their wines, are also very different from each other. It requires some grape growing and winemaking experience to switch from one to the other, such as different climates, soil types, vine illnesses and more. But life is full of surprises. Not convinced he wanted to make wine in Bordeaux, he took a harvest internship at L’Aventure in Paso Robles. The same bolt of lighting that he felt for Solène struck again. He fell in love with the soil and terroir of Paso Robles. What was supposed to be a 3-month harvest internship, turned into 6 months, and he was offered the position of Assistant Winemaker. While working for L’Aventure, Guillaume worked day and night on his own project - to launch his very own brand. In 2007, Clos Solène was born.

2020 Live Auction Lots

Every year, the Live Auction portion of Soirée du Vin features wine auction lots carefully selected by the event's Steering Committee, as well as trips and unique experiences that cannot be found anywhere else.

The Steering Committee is working on this year's live auction packages. Please stay tuned, and in the meantime, view the packages from the 2020 event.

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 educates children through a rigorous, collaborative, bilingual curriculum that promotes active engagement and responsible international consciousness.

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 children of the Silicon Valley International School.
