On Friday evening, a casual dinner welcomes guests from across the globe to reconnect and meet new friends.


Saturday morning vineyard activities continue followed by a festive children's harvest for guests of all ages with lunch, educational activities, and exceptional wines. To end, please join us for a spectacular gathering under the tent where the culmination of the weekend takes place and we combine an artfully crafted menu with paired wines and live music. The evening’s entertainment goes "Beyond the Crush" with a collection of eleven world renowned singers and musicians featuring Vance, Cathryn, and Marcus Lovett.

Legends of Motorsport Weekend
Friday dinner, Saturday rally and celebratory evening honoring a legendary racer

Great cars, fine wine and like-minded automotive enthusiasts will come together once again at The Napa Valley Reserve. Please save the date for our 13th annual Legends of Motorsport event on Saturday, November 4, 2017.

This year we are honoring four-time IndyCar Series Champion and three-time Indianapolis 500 Winner Dario Franchitti. He is one of only five drivers to win the Indianapolis 500 and the series title in the same season more than once. Franchitti is currently seventh on the all-time wins list with 31 victories. With 90 podium finishes, he passes Al Unser Jr. and Bobby Rahal for fourth on the all-time list. By winning the 2012 Indianapolis 500, he became the 10th driver in history to win the race three times. In March of 2017 Franchitti was elected to the Auto Racing Hall of Fame at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum.


We look forward to Members and special guests joining us for a casual rally and scenic drive through Napa Valley. Attendees are highly encouraged to drive their exotic and classic cars. Following the rally there will be a memorable reception and dinner followed by fireside chat with honoree Dario Franchitti. We hope you will join us for this special occasion!
