PAST EVENT

September Soiree: Judgment of Paris 40th Anniversary

Join The Commonwealth Club for our first annual September Soirée, hosted at the historic Green Gables estate in Woodside, celebrating the 40-year anniversary of the Judgment of Paris.

Sip, swirl and taste world-renowned wines from the winning Judgment of Paris wineries while supporting The Commonwealth Club at this benefit tasting event. You will have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with the winemakers, winery owners and vineyard specialists who crafted the wines that put California wines on the map 40 years ago. Take in the breathtaking scenery of the Santa Cruz Mountains from the extravagant Green Gables estate, which is recognized as a National Historic Place and was built by the famed architects Greene and Greene. As you stroll through the eloquent gardens you will make your way from one winery’s tasting station to the next and experience wines from Chalone, Veedercrest, Spring Mountain Vineyard's 2012 Elivette, and a 2000 Monte Bello from Ridge, among others, all paired with gourmet small plates carefully chosen to accentuate these defining wines of California.

The Commonwealth Club chooses to celebrate this momentous event on its 40th anniversary year to offer the winemakers and winery owners a chance to tell their stories behind the triumph at the Judgment of Paris and the wines that started a renaissance in the Napa Valley, making it one of the premier wine regions of the world.

Join us and these pioneers of California wine in a toast to the Judgment of Paris and support The Commonwealth Club by purchasing a tax-deductible ticket to our September Soirée.
