Lot 15 ~ La Vita è Bella... with Bocelli!

  • An extraordinary evening with Andrea Bocelli & Family with the special participation of Maestro Andrea Bocelli, ABF Founder in support of Festival Napa Valley and Andrea Bocelli Foundation
  • Dinner featuring a selection of world-class wines from Tusk Estates

The world’s most famous tenor, Andrea Bocelli, has performed for four US presidents, three Popes, and the Royal Family (he most recently sang for Queen Elizabeth II at her Platinum Jubilee). With over 80 million records sold worldwide, Bocelli has successfully brought classical music to the top of international pop charts — and can effortlessly render a sacred hymn or a pop song with the same perfection.

You’ll enjoy his company and more at this intimate, private event with Andrea Bocelli & Family. The Kohl Mansion, with its landmark architecture and grand views of San Francisco Bay, provides the elegant surroundings for exquisite music, exceptional food, and world-class wines, including the ultra-exclusive Tusk Estates. Crafted by Philippe Melka, Tusk is renowned as one of Napa Valley’s most elusive, unobtainable Cabernets — adding to the allure of this extraordinary evening.

Bocelli is a philanthropist as well as an unsurpassed artist. The foundation that bears his name, the Andrea Bocelli Foundation (ABF), has empowered people and communities facing poverty, illiteracy, illness, and social exclusion since 2011. ABF also implements and promotes educational projects through art, music, and digital media. This meaningful evening will support Festival Napa Valley’s educational programs, Andrea Bocelli Foundation’s educational projects in Haiti and Italy, as well as initiatives that support Ukrainian refugee students in the communities ABF serves.

Expect a transcendent evening with a remarkable purpose.

Access to this once-in-a-lifetime benefit event is $10,000 per person ($9,600 tax deductible). A limited number of spots are available.  Contact Festival Napa Valley’s Patron Services Team at concierge@festivalnapavalley.orgor call 707.927.3874 to reserve your place.
