Jessup Cellars’ Dress to the Vines Weekend returns to the relaxed, yet stylish town of Yountville where great wine, fine food, exceptional art and wine country fashion takes center stage. The June 26 through 28 weekend kicks-off poolside Thursday evening with Bardessono Hotel & Spa’s Dive Bar Fashion Party2. On Friday it’s Jessup Cellars’ TasteMaker Dinner at Lucy. Then it’s on to Saturday for the Dress to the K-nines Stroll and Sister’s Boutique Sip ‘n’ Shop at V Marketplace. The weekend wraps Saturday night with the opening celebration of Jessup Cellars’ resident artist and curator Cynthia Carey’s Art is Fashion II exhibition, with Napa Valley’s top boutiques showcasing their favorite looks for summer, all Webcasted by CellarPass TV.
Throughout the weekend, Jessup Cellars will host an accessories drive in support of Dress for Success San Francisco. Visitors to Jessup Cellars who donate “accessories appropriate for the workplace or a job interview” will receive a 2 for 1 tasting. Ten percent of the weekend’s event wine sales will also benefit the non-profit, which promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, network support, and career development.
Join Jessup Cellars at Bardessono’s Dive Bar Fashion Party2 featuring Jessup Cellars wines paired with Sarah Horowitz Parfums by Mary Orlin, Huffington Post’s wine, food, fashion and fragrance blogger. The Spa at Bardessono will make a splash with a swimwear show, featuring designer Mia Marcelle, with eyewear by Kahoy Kollection. To quench summer thirsts, Bardessono’s mixologists will serve up exclusive Dress to the Vines cocktails created with Tito’s Vodka and Maestro Dobel Tequila.
Space Limited ~ Admittance is First-Come, First-Served & Not Guaranteed. 21+ Only.
The evening begins with sips of Jessup Cellars just released 2013 Sauvignon Blanc in the private dining room and intimate patio at Lucy. Special guest fashion designer and stylist Marta Kappl of Bespoke Fashion & Styling in St. Helena will share her story of how she uses the finest, most exclusive cotton available to create her custom, cotton shirt line. As she explains, “Cotton is a luxury fiber that has its own terroir, much like wine.” Marta will also explore the health aspects of wearing natural, organic cottons. Over dinner, Jessup Cellars will present its flagship wines and how the winery approaches designing its signature blends, while executive chef Victor Scargle of Lucy will demonstrate how to achieve the “look” of presentation with each dinner course, including to-die-for dessert. Seating is very limited. 21+ Only.

The town of Yountville is famous for many things, including being pedestrian and dog friendly, so Jessup Cellars has merged this distinction with Dress to the Vines. Dog lovers and their best friends will meet at 10am to gather for a photo shoot at Jessup Cellars, and then stroll south through town, past The French Laundry gardens, and finish at V-Market Place for an informal Best Dressed Contest. ArtyChokers, creators of designer, interchangeable dog collars, will be on hand with a pop-up for consultation and shopping to outfit humankind’s best friends.
Right on the heels of our Dress to the K-Nines stroll, the day’s wine country fashion celebration heads upstairs to Sisters Boutique in V-Marketplace. Sisters’ team of expert style consultants will share quick tips on how to achieve that “Sun Kissed” look for summer, while Jessup Cellars shares tastes of its refreshingly delicious 2012 Chardonnay and just released 2013 Sauvignon Blanc. To put the final touch on the afternoon, Blue Poppy Jewels by designer Susan Nelson is hosting a trunk show featuring its brilliant gems and quality metals fused with Susan’s design esthetic of simple elegance.
