  • A Very Exclusive Cakebread Cellars Seven-Course Wine Dinner Experience Featuring Jeff Dixon, Kobrand Wine
    May 26, 2022
    6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

A La Grande Tente Garden Terrace Event! 

Please join us on Thursday, May 26th at 6pm when we welcome Cakebread Cellars to L’Auberge Chez Franҫois for an evening of fine food with one of California’s benchmark wineries.

The Cakebread family, owners of Cakebread Cellars in Rutherford, is one of the most highly esteemed and successful wineries in California’s famed Napa Valley. Since its founding in 1973, the winery has earned a reputation for exceptional wines and gracious hospitality. Cakebread’s success has been built on quality, consistency and continuity – characteristics the family believes apply equally to the grapes, the wines and the people who create Cakebread’s world-class wines. Each of the Cakebreads has contributed his or her individual talents to produce a harmonious, synergistic blend. Chef Jacques and his team has created a very special menu from his award-winning kitchen to perfectly pair with these wines.

Please join us for an evening of fabulous wine and cuisine offered on our covered garden terrace 40ft x 55ft Grande Tente, complete with cooling fans, café bistro lighting, and pastoral views of our six acres, two on-site gardens, koi pond, and blooming flowers; early reservations encouraged. Merci beaucoup and see you there!

Bon appétit and cheers!
