I met Kent and Tracy through one of my Mount Veeder Magic Vineyards clients. I hosted them at our farmhouse last year. We had a fun afternoon and bonded instantly. They are such genuine people…the kind that you can’t wait to spend time with again.
This summer, Kent and Tracy were a gaggle of 8 as they were in tow with the successful bidders of a March of Dimes auction lot.
The auction lot included the experience of having Chef Rathbun cook for them in Napa Valley…a generous donation…like I said, these are genuine people. Their six guests were equally amazing, all kind, generous and accomplished.
After greeting the group with champagne, I set us up on the back porch…our outdoor dining room. Alexa played some low down, dirty blues in the background (a nod to our group’s Southern Roots).
It was a warm day. I filled a water dispenser with oranges and blueberries so people could help themselves. We all visited on the porch while Chef Rathbun worked his magic on the grill.
