Pricing:  $270 +tx per member (max 2)  |  $295 +tx per non-member

Preparations are already in the making for Napa Valley’s most sensational event of the fall season – V. Sattui’s Annual Harvest Ball. Celebrating its 36th year in 2022 (after 2 years of postponement), this spectacular soiree promises to be an unforgettable affair. World-class entertainment, transcendent culinary delights and, of course, a selection of highly-acclaimed wines will be yours to indulge in as you revel in the sights, sounds and flavors of the biggest party of the year!

Arrive dressed to the nines in your finest black-tie attire and sip sparkling wine as you stroll our Tuscan-inspired winery’s beautifully manicured grounds. Take in the magical scene of twilight over the vineyards before you settle in under the big-top for a multi-course gourmet meal. This culinary journey through Italy prepared by our own Michelin Star Chef, Stefano Masanti will be expertly paired with our top tier wines – including our highest-rated Cabernets, perfectly-aged large formats and other rare selections. Savor course after exquisite course until you hit gastronomic paradiso then loosen your bow-tie and get ready to boogie the night away to a live musical stage show featuring the sensational Alter Ego.

Returning Michelin Star CHEF STEFANO MASANTI

We are honored to once again showcase the incredible cuisine of our dear friend and celebrated chef Stefano Masanti.  V. Sattui Winery is the only winery in the United States that has an in-house chef who has been awarded a Michelin Star each of the past thirteen years, including 2021. Chef Masanti, assisted by his chef de cuisine from his acclaimed restaurant in the Italian Alps, Il Cantinone, will prepare a multi-course meal that is the ultimate Italian gastronomical experience.

This gourmet “journey” through Italy will be preceded by a selection of decadent appetizers accompanied by sparkling wine followed by rare and older vintages, highly-acclaimed cabernets, blends, reserve wines, Jeroboams and Nebuchadnezzars.  Our most-coveted dessert wines will be served with Chef Masanti’s sweet finale.

ALTER EGO – North America’s Top Tribute Band!

We’ve pulled out ALL the stops this year with our returning favorite dinner entertainment! Based in Montreal, ALTER EGO travels the world dazzling the most prestigious audiences with their explosively entertaining stage show. We dare you to stay in your seats as you experience the versatility of this famed tribute band and their non-stop all dance repertoire which features the best of 70’s disco, 80’s rock, 90’s Pop, and hit songs of the new Millenium.

Sing along with their seven talented lead singer/dancers as they wow the audience with over 80 dramatic costume changes and choreographed routines. There’s no doubt this group rocks a show like no other and we’re delighted for their return to V. Sattui Winery!

The “After Party” in our underground Barrel Aging Cellars

After our dinner entertainers take their final bow, adjourn to our underground Barrel Cellars, complete with intimate tables, dim lights, and private rooms to taste special wines. To top it all off, our award-winning Port and Madeira and cigars will be available on our terraces under the stars.
