On August 1st Palmina Wines held its 20th anniversary celebration at Sogna del Fiore Vineyard with a celebration of food, wine, music and friends. It was a beautiful evening in the Santa Ynez Valley, made even more beautiful with a welcome glass of Palmina’s sparkling Nebbiolo — Lumina.
There was an incredible food lineup: Erik Kelley from The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills, Chef Brandon Boudet from Dominick’s (Los Angeles), Jake Francis from Valley Piggery, Chef Massimo Falsini from the Four Seasons Hotel in Hualalai & David Cecchini from Cecco Ristorante in Solvang. And live music from Steve Clifton — the winemaker himself — and his band, Mojo Classic Rock, kept the crowd dancing and singing along.
We were also treated to the full lineup of Palmina current releases & a special selection of library wines, like this 2005 Arneis. And for another special treat, David & Anna deLaski of Solminer Wines were pouring their wines.
And to top off the night — Italian gelato. Nothing could have been better.
What a great night & congratulations to Palmina!
