Cabernet for Connoisseurs provides the essential revenue needed to support Family House for one year. Founded in 1981, Family House is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization which offers temporary housing to families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at the University of California, San Francisco Benioff Children's Hospital. Qualifying families live more than 50 miles from UCSF, and many live at or below the poverty level. Family House accommodates over 100 families per night, and serves over 2,000 families each year.
Cabernet for Connoisseurs is one of the country’s top ten wine and lifestyle auctions. You will have the opportunity to meet vintners of the Wine Country's most coveted cuvées, and to taste vintages specially selected from their cellars at the Grand Tasting. Over 50 vintners will be on-hand to show their support for Family House and to provide you with their world-renowned Wine Country hospitality. As you taste, stroll through the display of silent auction items and take home some of your favorite wines, gourmet collectibles and other fine lifestyle items. This event is dedicated to ensuring that children at risk from life threatening illnesses and their families are cared for in a loving and comfortable environment.

The professional peer-to-peer networking and relationship-building with more than 225 of Napa Valley's vintners is often likened to a homecoming for our most loyal ambassadors.
