FALL VINEYARD NUPTIALS IN NAPA
A Wedding at a Napa Private Estate
Over a warm Labor Day weekend, a mixture of blended families converged in Napa (at the groom’s father’s winery/private estate) for a remarkable, food centric, weekend of events. Living bicoastal (between Napa and Fire Island), the hosts main focus for the wedding was an abundance of textures, flavors and cuisines that blended both their family roots to the East Coast and their new vineyard roots of the West. Not a detail was missed – dancing on top of a bamboo covered pool, a constructed tiered dining area to accommodate the 200 plus guests, aerialist performances throughout the property, a “Buddha” or “Moroccan” style lounge, a “speakeasy” menu item, a Momofuku cake flown in from New York, a wine tasting bar devoted solely to Meteor Vineyard wines, and a celebrity mixologist at a specialty cocktail bar, Kevin Mabry, flown in from Boston. As the sun set on the property, the energy level shifted from a refined culinary delight to a dancing until dawn experience.
