The rich tradition of their Persian culture imbued Darioush and Shahpar Khaledi, passionate and longtime supporters of Festival Napa Valley, with the importance of art, wine, and hospitality as vital components of a life well lived and shared.
French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet
, who, over the past three decades, has built an unassailable reputation as one of the world’s top pianists, kicks off today’s occasion at Darioush
with a private concert at the winery’s picturesque amphitheater. “Every note he fashions is a pearl…the joy, brilliance and musicality of his performance could not be missed,” hailed The New York Times
about this extraordinary artist.
The afternoon continues with a gourmet luncheon, served family style under the pistache trees overlooking rolling vineyards, and prepared by the talented Estate Events at Meadowood. Of course, this magical day would not be complete without the crown jewel of the estate—lucky guests will be treated to glasses of Darius II, an intense but elegant and age-worthy, limited production Cabernet Sauvignon.
