Inspire Napa Valley

May 5-7, 2023 | Napa Valley

Founded by Kerrin Laz, Inspire brings together a number of top winery and wine personalities for a weekend that combines education and fun, all in support of the Alzheimer’s Foundation. The weekend kicks off with an outdoor dinner prepared by a number of wine professionals led by Katherine and Brad Grimes. You will find Antonio Galloni in the kitchen cleaning vegetables or engaged in some other tasks that won’t materially affect the quality of dinner. There is something magical about the evenings in Napa Valley in spring, which makes this dinner an event Antonio looks forward to all year. As always, Antonio will bring a few bottles from his cellar, so make sure to stop by the kitchen, but don’t tell anyone. Saturday starts with an update from Dr. Maria Carrillo, Alzheimer's Association Chief Science Officer, and then a panel tasting led by Antonio with a group of wine luminaries.

With education taken care of, it is time to taste an incredible collection of Napa Valley wines. This year’s walk-around tasting will be held at Round Pond, a stunning property in its own right. Afternoon melts into dinner and a very fun, engaging charity auction. Sunday brunch at Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc is the perfect place to enjoy a Bloody Mary or two and catch up with friends.
