Six-Star Supernova Dining

Tuesday, May 30, 2023

Wheeler Farms - St. Helena, California
$10,000 per person

  • An evening of stellar dining and fine wines for 20 people
  • Featuring a rare menu collaboration by Napa Valley’s Michelin three-Starred chefs: Thomas Keller and Christopher Kostow
  • Paired with selected wines from Araujo Estate, Accendo Cellars, and other surprises from Bart and Daphne Araujo’s personal cellar

The collision of two stars is a rare event in our galaxy, seen only once or twice a century. But six stars colliding in one evening? That is an extraordinary, incomparable event, unlikely to ever occur again. For 20 guests, the Araujo family has created an opportunity to experience such a stellar anomaly with dinner prepared by Napa Valley’s two Michelin three-Starred chefs: Thomas Keller and Christopher Kostow.

Proprietor of the iconic Napa Valley restaurant, The French Laundry, Chef Thomas Keller is the first and only American-born chef to hold multiple three-star ratings from the Michelin Guide. Designated a Chevalier of The French Legion of Honor, France’s highest decoration, he brings his exactingly high standards to bear on innovative French-American cuisine.

Chef Christopher Kostow is the critically acclaimed chef of The Restaurant at Meadowood in St. Helena, and the third youngest chef to ever receive three Michelin stars. Chef Kostow draws upon his own American upbringing and the singular beauty and bounty of the Napa Valley to cook food that is thoughtful, personal and in concert with his community and collaborators.

Join the Araujo family for this unrivaled dinner, fusing the culinary brilliance of these esteemed chefs the night before the Collective Napa Valley 2023 Barrel Auction Weekend (June 1-3). Chef Keller and Chef Kostow’s collaborative menu will be complemented by a selection of equally exceptional wines, including Araujo Estate and Accendo Cellars, as well as some of Bart and Daphne’s favorite wines collected throughout the past 40 years as passionate wine connoisseurs.

The evening will unfold in the heart of Napa Valley under the stars* at Wheeler Farms, surrounded by the bursting vines, edible gardens, heritage fruit tree orchard, olive trees and majestic Mt. St. Helena in the distance.

Reach for the stars…and your wallet…so you don’t miss the opportunity to reserve your seat at the table—or purchase all 20 seats so you can share this celestial evening with 19 of your closest friends.

*weather permitting
