For 45 years, when the chilly winter weather and dormant vines offered time and opportunity to gather together, Jack and Dolores Cakebread opened their namesake cellar to friends and family for the annual Open House.
As the event grew, they continued to stand and greet everyone personally at the front door, sharing stories and making memories.
In our 50th anniversary year, we honor our late founders by dedicating this annual gathering to their legacy. On our Open House - Founder's Day, we celebrate our philosophy as etched by our inspiring leaders: Quality wine brings good food and great company together around the table. Join us for delectable wine and food pairings and a celebration of the lives and legacy of Jack and Dolores Cakebread.
Historically proceeds from this event are donated to a local community organization. This family tradition continues with all proceeds being donated to the Napa Valley Food Bank, continuing the family's longstanding tradition of charitable giving.
