An evening of fine wine, fun and inspiration!

Now in its 26th 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 $14 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.

Party Like a Warrior!… Own a Piece of History! 

How about those Warriors? And how about a chance to see them up-close and personal? Your party of 12 will enjoy a pre-game feast hosted by Warriors majority owners Joe and Nicole Lacob, followed by a home game from their 12 courtside lounge seats just a few rows behind the players. To take this once-in-a-lifetime celebration over the top, this lot also includes a rare magnum of Domaine Curry’s 2019 “Four Rings” Blend Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This limited edition of only 20 1.5L bottles was created for Stephen Curry, select NBA players, and dignitaries like President Barack Obama. This unique bottle is a highly collectible piece of art and history. Not available for public sale, it’s truly priceless.
