About Harvest Ball 2018:

Plans are underway for the greatest Napa Valley party of the year!  In its 34rd year, this private ball is the most highly-anticipated event of the fall season. Our stunning winery, reminiscent of an estate in Tuscany with its lush landscaping and breathtaking vineyard views, is yours to explore and savor as you and your fellow guests stroll the exquisitely manicured grounds, dressed in your finest party clothes. You’ll watch the sun set over our iconic stone tower framed against the rolling hills. You’ll dine on a multi-course gourmet dinner prepared by our Italian-born chef and recipient of the coveted Michelin star, while you drink the most prestigious, award-winning wines available only at V. Sattui. Live music from the largest, most electrifying Michael Jackson tribute show in the country will have you dancing in the aisles – all the while our attentive and knowledgeable staff ensure that your glass is always filled. After dinner, you’ll be transported an R&B Dance Hall in our cellars as you boogie the night away to the funky rhythms of Big City Revue. This magical evening will linger in your memory for a very long time.

Returning Michelin Star CHEF STEFANO MASANTI

Sattui Winery is the only winery in the United States that has an in-house chef, Stefano Masanti, who has been awarded a Michelin star for the past nine years, including 2017. Chef Masanti, assisted by his chef de cuisine from his acclaimed restaurant in the Italian Alps, Il Cantinone, will prepare a five-course dinner that is the ultimate Italian gastronomical experience. This gourmet feast will be preceded by various passed appetizers and accompanied by rare and older vintages, the highest-rated cabernets, blends, reserve wines, Jeroboams and Nebuchadnezzars. Our finest dessert wines will accompany Chef Masanti’s special ending for this extraordinary dinner.

FOREVERLAND: The 14-piece Tribute to the Music of Michael Jackson

Since 2009, Foreverland has been mesmerizing audiences around the country with their larger-than-life tribute to the one and only Michael Jackson.  Featuring four dynamic vocalists, a powerhouse rhythm section, and the hardest working horn section in the biz, Foreverland recreates hits from the Jackson 5 era through the end of Michael’s incredible career in a way that honors the King of Pop’s musical genius and legendary showmanship like no other tribute band has ever done.

“WOW, WOW, WOW! Foreverland embodies the music, magic, and message of Michael Jackson with their high energy, eclectic show! Everyone needs to see their show!”

“Unbelievable performance! Thoroughly enjoyed this talented group of singers and musicians!

“Foreverland is a guaranteed great time! You can’t help but dance all night to the undeniably great music of The King of Pop truly immortalized by this talented group of musicians!”

After dinner, stroll your way to our underground Barrel Aging Cellars to dance the night away!

Our barrel rooms will be transformed into an rhythmic soul-funk dance hall, complete with intimate tables, dim lights, and private rooms to taste special wines. You’ll enjoy luscious desserts, small plates and dancing to the soul-injected music of Big City Revue. Returning again to V. Sattui, Big City Revue has traveled the world over delivering their own diversified and dynamic musical style of Motown 60’s, Disco 70’s, 80’s Retro, 90’s and current hits. To top it all off, our award-winning port and Madeira and cigars will be available to the gentlemen, and the ladies, too, on our terraces under the stars.
