An evening of fine wine, fun and inspiration!
Now in its 25th year, the annual Cabernet for Connoisseurs is the flagship event for Family House, bringing together two of the greatest features of the Bay Area: Wine and Philanthropy, raising more than $12.5 million for Family House since 1995. The evening is a special celebration featuring incredible wines and a gourmet dinner, alongside a finely curated live auction with once in a lifetime experiences, live music and so much more. Hundreds of dedicated supporters, partners, friends, vintners and volunteers participate in this annual fundraising event. We missed everyone in 2020, and are looking forward to having a safe, outdoor event in beautiful Napa Valley.
Attendees will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
LIVE AUCTION PREVIEW
Curry, Keller, Cards & Crustaceans: A Peak-Experience Poker Night
Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit Atlas Peak in Napa Valley for a poker night with Ayesha and Steph Curry, and The French Laundry’s Thomas Keller. Keller will create a lavish New England lobster boil, paired with wines from Domaine Curry collection and John Schwartz’s extensive personal cellar. Limousine transportation and luxury accommodations for four guests and two nights help make this an unforgettable experience for a lucky bidder. All proceeds support Family House San Francisco!

Our Emmy award-winning culinary-TV team of producer Susie Heller, director Paul Swensen and his professional crew from Northern California Public Media, will take you from planning to prep to production and post, and make you look like the pro you’ve always wanted to be. You’re secure in the expert hands that have produced the likes of Jacques Pepin, Julia Child, Thomas Keller, Martin Yan, José Andres, Joanne Weir and Lidia Bastianich.
