Family House Chefs Event at Meteor, Another Success

20 super star chefs along with 4 amazing Napa vintners converged on Meteor Vineyard this past Saturday for another successful Family House Event.  Family house serves as a "home away from home" for families of children with life-threatening illnesses by not only providing physical comfort but, also emotional support.  These families therefore can be near their child without financial concerns.   Family House hosts a yearly cabernet tasting, dinner and auction called Cabernet for Connoisseurs with all proceeds going to the charity.  This is the second year in a row that Meteor has participated as host and vintner in the chefs lot, a lot we are happy to say brought in over $100,000 in donations for Family House!

Meteor always enjoys hosting and participating in this amazing event, and this year was no exception.  We wanted to share some preview photos of the event with our Meteor Family (more to come):
