Come relax and raise a toast on the magnificent Mediterranean-style Terrace of Casa Grande at Hearst Castle. Sponsored by the Friends of Hearst Castle, this balmy evening of fine wines and delicious gourmet delicacies features supporting roles from stunning scenery and jasmine-scented gardens. Browse the outdoor gallery of original works created by renowned California Plein Air artists. By invitation each year, a handpicked group of artists lose themselves for two days in the natural beauty of La Cuesta Encantada, painting diverse and magnificent works of art for this premier fine art exhibit. Proceeds from the sale of the paintings fund ArtReach, pairing at-risk youth with artist mentors to nurture partnership and creativity. J. Lohr will be presenting our 2006 J. Lohr Hilltop Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2007 J. Lohr Arroyo Vista Chardonnay.
