Ensuring access to the arts is core to Festival Napa Valley’s mission — and the inspiration of the Arts for All Gala. To date, the Gala has raised over $20 million, making it one of the most impactful nights of the Festival and among the nation’s biggest fundraisers for the arts.
This year’s Gala is headlined by superstar singer Carrie Underwood, a multi-platinum-selling artist with 8 GRAMMY® Awards, 16 Academy of Country Music Awards, and countless other accolades. She brings her powerhouse vocals to Nickel & Nickel to perform a selection of her chart-topping hits.
Guests will enjoy an exquisite dinner prepared by Michelin-star chef Charlie Palmer paired with offerings from the Far Niente and Nickel & Nickel family of wines. The festivities include a live auction led by Emmy Award-winning auctioneer John Curley and featuring a collection of luxury lots including coveted wine collections, exclusive travel and dining packages, unique performing arts experiences, and other “once-in-a-lifetime” lots that money can’t buy.
Proceeds fund inspiring educational programs, free and affordable concerts, original programming for youth, and scholarships for talented young artists — endeavors to which we can all raise a glass.
Proxy bidding is available for those unable to attend. For information, contact the Festival’s Patron Services via email or call 707.927.3874.

Nickel & Nickel
Each individual vineyard is alive. At least, that’s how they see it at Nickel & Nickel. Alive with nuance and personality and attributes and peculiarities that shine through in every vine, in every grape, and ultimately in every wine that originates from this land. At Nickel & Nickel, single-vineyard, 100% varietal wine is what has given them their reputation for dynamic, interesting, nuanced Napa Valley Cabernets. Every one of their wines is the pure expression of its particular vineyard. No two vineyards are alike. No two Nickel & Nickel wines are alike. And the discrete and expertly-tended vineyards that make up Nickel & Nickel assure devoted wine lovers of a singular and extraordinary wine experience every time.
