Summer is almost upon us, and with it is sure to come barbecues, garden parties and every other form of outdoor socializing that one can dream up. But we have an extra special social engagement that is worth clearing your day for.
Dust off your finest hat and shine your best shoes, because Kendall-Jackson, the ‘Preferred Wine of the Kentucky Derby’, is hosting the largest West Coast Kentucky Derby party at their wine estate and gardens on Saturday, May 7.
Whilst wine making is the Kendall-Jackson family’s first love, horse racing comes a close second. But whether you’re a horse racing fanatic, passionate about good wine or simply love an excuse to get a bit glam, this promises to be the party of the summer.
Included in your ticket is complimentary food and three drinks tokens, with more available to purchase. Enjoy delicious southern cuisine, expertly paired with elegant wines from the award winning Kendall-Jackson collection and other favorites from around Sonoma County. Just be careful not to spill anything on your threads, as every one is sure to be looking their best!
Great wine and horse racing might be the main attraction at this party, but Kendall-Jackson has pulled out all the stops this year, and there will be plenty more food, drink and entertainment to discover throughout their stunning four-acre culinary garden.
Sit on the luscious lawn and sip a fragrant mint julep whilst viewing the races on a large screen, or enjoy a beer from the Seismic Brewing Company whilst placing a bet on your lucky horse. And no party is complete without some great live music! You can stroll around the garden whilst browsing for a bite to eat from one of the local restaurant partners. Or if, by some disaster, you forgot your hat, you can pay a visit to the hat millinery before flashing your best smile in the photo booth.
With this fantastic party, Kendall-Jackon aims to bring the excitement of the Kentucky Derby to Sonoma, and welcome guests to embrace a new Derby tradition. Celebrating the Kentucky Derby with a glass of Kendall Jackson wine, you can raise a toast to good food, good wine and good times.
The Kendall-Jackson Kentucky Derby Party will take place on Saturday May 7, between 11am-5.30pm, at the Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate & Gardens, 5007 Fulton Road, Fulton, CA 95439. General admission is $125 or $100 for wine club members and designated drivers. Event proceeds will benefit Sonoma County’s Meals on Wheels program.
