Harvest 2009: David Family Wines Event, An Evening of Provincial Decadence (Yup, That's What They Call It)
Harvest 2009, billed as "An Evening of Provincial Decadence," is a celebration of food and wine to be held this Saturday to launch David Family Wines; the event benefits two California causes, Habitat for Humanity and Learning Rights. David Family Wines has built their four year-old company around master winemakers, using grapes from the best California vineyards--and helping to build homes.
The company has set up a partnership with Habitat for Humanity San Francisco (they are working on finalizing a similar partnership with Habitat Los Angeles), where "Every Bottle Matters." Each bottle is labeled with a number, which can be entered on the David Family website, so that wine purchasers can "meet" the family and home project benefited by the purchase of that specific bottle.

Harvest 2009 celebrates the release of David Family Wines first two wines, a 2005 Merlot from Napa Valley, and a 2006 Pinot Noir from the Santa Lucia Highlands. Chef Eric Kelley, of the Cheese Store of Beverly Hills, will prepare a wine-paired 3-course dinner for the event, which will be held at the (not usually open to the public) historic Gilmore Adobe in the Grove. The event also includes live music and a silent auction.
