You are invited to join the who’s who of Sonoma Valley’s legendary wine community for a wine dinner you’ll never forget, hosted in the private home of one of our most iconic wine families. Envision yourself at an elegantly adorned table within one of Sonoma Valley’s most exclusive and captivating locations, the ideal setting to raise a glass (or two) with a room full of local wine legends.
Each of our vintner hosts has selected a memorable wine from his or her personal collection to share with you— a bottle both rare and personal, speaking to the history, passion and innovation that has catapulted Sonoma Valley into wine cellars, and onto tables, worldwide. The stories will flow freely, along with the wine, and each course thoughtfully crafted by Chef Ari Weiswasser of Glen Ellen Star, to complement the evening’s incomparable wines. After dinner, join your vintner hosts for a final glass of Sonoma Valley wine and a ‘My Father’ cigar in the cigar lounge. It’s not a dream: it’s the Legends Dinner, Signature Sonoma Valley’s flagship event, and you are there.

DON & NANCY SEBASTIANI PRIVATE RESIDENCE
Don Sebastiani, is the third generation of a pioneering Sonoma Valley family, and has been a prominent vintner in the local wine industry for decades. The Sebastiani family history dates back to the late 1800’s, with the fourth generation still calling Sonoma home today. With deep Sonoma roots and a growing family, Don and his wife Nancy re-built their private residence in 2012 with materials imported from Italy and France. There is but one word to describe this Italian villa: Spectacular. The expansive yet warm interior, designed by the renowned Jessica Hall Associates, boasts one-of-a-kind detail, touches and treasures that reflect the well-traveled owners’ elegance, heritage and love of family. Don and Nancy will welcome guests to their private residence and enchanting gardens, to host a legendary evening for Signature Sonoma Valley guests.
