Soirée du Vin a Smashing Success!



Guests enjoyed beautiful weather with seven vintners pouring their best wines, followed by a lively gourmet wine-paired dinner and auction.

The room was full of energy and wonderful vibes, undoubtedly only possible with the generosity and support of all the guests, donors, and pouring vintners for their continued support and for making it a night to remember.

Mark your calendars for next year’s event on Sunday, September 30, 2018, and until then, please enjoy viewing the photo gallery, and read highlights from the event.

Silicon Valley's Premier Wine Auction

Meet the Pouring Vintners

During the Wine Tasting hour, you will have the opportunity to speak with the winemakers and vintners as they personally serve you some of their finest red and white wines!

Rob Jensen, Testarossa Winery

Guest Speaker

A fourth generation Northern Californian, Rob Jensen developed a passion for winemaking: its past, present, and future through extensive travel to Europe's great wine growing areas, combined with living in Italy during his university days. This fueled his interests and eventually led to the founding of Testarossa Winery. 

Although Rob's degree is in Electrical Engineering, he has studied grape growing, winemaking and chemistry at the renowned School of Viticulture and Enology at UC Davis. Rob's technical background, love of the arts, and business experience made it a natural for him to dive headlong into the wine business, an industry that is equal parts science and art.
