Jessup Cellars’ Dress to the Vines Weekend 2014 Expands Throughout Yountville, Opens Fashion is Art II Exhibition & Invites K-Nine Friends to Primp & Stroll
Celebration Includes Fundraising & Accessory Drive for Dress for Success San Francisco
(Yountville, CA, May 20th 2014) — Jessup Cellars’ Dress to the Vines weekend has moved earlier in the summer to June 26th through 28th, expanded activities beyond its Yountville Tasting Gallery, and invited its canine friends to join the celebration in 2014. Yountville, renowned for great wine and food, luxury resorts, and being pedestrian and dog friendly, naturally attracts residents and visitors alike with a flair for style. Dress to the Vines takes all of these elements of style and taste and wraps them into one, delicious weekend. A portion of the weekend proceeds, as well as an accessory drive, benefits Dress for Success San Francisco, a non-profit that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, network support, and career development.
“Our vision from year one was to expand Dress to the Vines throughout Yountville,” explains Judd Wallenbrock, General Manager at Jessup Cellars. “We’re honored to partner with our local business friends to create fresh looks and experiences with each event. The addition of Dress for Success San Francisco as our charitable partner puts the finishing touch on our three-day celebration.”
Featured guests and partners include Bardessono Hotel & Spa, Lucy Restaurant & Bar, V Marketplace, CellarPass TV, Sisters Boutique, Wine Fashionista Mary Orlin, Sarah Horowitz Parfums, Mia Marcelle Swimwear, Kahoy Kollection eyewear, artist Cynthia Carey, ArtyChockers, Blue Poppy Jewels, Vintage Trunk, Cake Plate, Bespoke Fashion & Styling, Amelia Claire and Sole Provider.
The weekend kicks-off poolside on Thursday, June 26th with Bardessono Hotel & Spa’s Dive Bar Fashion Party2. On Friday, June 27th it’s the TasteMaker: Wine, Dine & Design Dinner at Lucy Restaurant & Bar. Saturday, June 28th begins with the Dress to the K-nines Stroll and Sister’s Boutique Sip ‘n’ Shop at V-Marketplace. Saturday wraps the weekend with the opening celebration of Jessup Cellars’ resident artist and curator Cynthia Carey’s Art is Fashion II exhibition and a Summer Look Fashion Mixer with Napa Valley’s top boutiques.
