The weekend gala for luxury aficionados to come together and revel in gourmet cooking, luxurious Cuban cigars, and vintage California wines for three unforgettable days is scheduled from May 4th to the 6th of 2017, and hosted by Charlie Palmer at Harvest Inn in Napa Valley.
This second annual event pays homage to the 80th anniversary of Montecristo, which to this day accounts for roughly one-quarter of Habanos SA’s worldwide cigar sales, designating it the most popular and best-selling cigar maker in the world. Those that will be present during all or only part of the celebratory weekend will be able to indulge in some of Napa Valley’s finest wines and be given the opportunity to partake in specifically selected Montecristos with Cuban cigar specialist, collector, and proprietor of London’s renowned Casa del Habano “Ajay Patel”.
On the first day, the celebration begins with a barbecue reception provided by Harvest Table executive chef Spencer Wolff and will also present complimentary One Main hand-rolled cigars. The next night commemorates the 80th anniversary of Montecristo with a multi-course dinner by Wolff and cigar & wine parings with Ajay Patel, as you look out over the Mayacamas Mountains and the hundreds of acres of vineyards. The last day features an exclusive tasting at Gargiulo Vineyards followed by an array of cigars and a special winery tour, after which, a private reception and dinner take-place at Oakville’s famed B Cellars cave and includes a world-class menu, incredible wine, and aromatic cigars.
Tickets for this grand gala can be procured for specific events ranging from $70 to $350 per person. As for the two- and three-night resort packages, they can range from $2,585 to $3,414 and include first-rate accommodations at Harvest Inn. In addition, dinners and tastings for two are available as well. The event will take a share of the proceeds to be donated to local charitable directed organizations, which will include the Boys & Girls Club of St. Helena.
