For the first time in its 23-year history, Kitchens in the Vineyards introduces Icons of Design - an exclusive home tour and tribute dinner celebrating the quintessential Napa Valley lifestyle. Limited to only 150 guests, the evening begins aboard luxury mini coaches for a guided tour of the 2020 feature residences. Zip through the valley with sparkling wines in hand and experience gorgeous estates tucked away from public sight - each carefully selected for how it showcases the unique joie de vivre of our iconic wine country. Guided tours at each home allow you to stroll the lush grounds and gardens, take in vineyard vistas, and step inside to inspiring interiors with rich history and published design. The experience continues as patrons return for a twilight wine reception at Charles Krug Winery, followed by an elegant dinner with premium wines and an auction featuring a selection of one-of-a-kind experiences.
The evening will culminate with a tribute and celebration of our 2020 Icons of Design Honorees: Molly Chappellet and Robilee Frederick Deane. These accomplished women have greatly influenced the cultural landscape of the Napa Valley and their design contributions are both iconic and inimitable, extending far beyond the valley.
