Led by Xander Parish, a former principal dancer at the Mariinsky Ballet, the evening features dancers who were previously part of Russia’s most elite dance companies, including the Bolshoi Ballet and Stanislavsky Ballet.

Patron Dinner at Trinchero Napa Valley

In 1948, Mario Trinchero and his family embarked on a journey west in search of a better life. They purchased an abandoned Prohibition-era winery in St. Helena and renovated it, starting a small-scale operation. Fast forward seven decades and Trinchero Family Estates has become one of the biggest family-owned wine companies in the country, boasting an impressive portfolio of over fifty wine and spirits brands from around the world. The Trinchero family has always been at the forefront of innovation in the industry, shaping the way Americans drink wine and consistently committing to sustainable farming practices.

Trinchero Principal and Vice Chairman Robert “Bob” Torres and his wife Maria hosted a dinner that celebrates the family’s passion for the land, community, and exceptional wine. Guests were treated to a sumptuous dinner perfectly paired with a curated selection of wines from Trinchero Family Estates.
