Dream Team

Was it all just a wonderful Hamel Family Wines dream that took place on the last Saturday night in April at HFW? No, in fact it was actually a food lovers’ Dream Team creating one dreamy meal! Never before assembled in one kitchen on the same night, six James Beard Award winning chefs generously donated their time and considerable culinary skills to create a once-in-a-lifetime feast. Twenty six extraordinarily big-hearted and generous couples paid $10,000 per couple, the entire proceeds of which went to Sonoma County not-for-profit beneficiaries. This was HFW’s inaugural live auction lot in the Sonoma Harvest Wine Auction last Labor Day weekend, and it raised a Sonoma Harvest Wine Auction record of $260,000 for charity.
