Past Honorary Gala Chairs

2022 Honorary Wine Chair
Rob Mondavi, Jr. | Rutledge & Vine

The 2022 Wine Gala was a night to remember with a terrific host in Rob Mondavi, Jr.! Guests made a full return to the Saucon Valley Country Club ballroom for a night of curated wine, delicious food, and good cheer!

2021 Honorary Wine Chair
Celia Welch | Corra Wines

Much like the year before, our 2021 Gala event was done with an innovative format with a live event at Saucon Valley Country Club and a livestream to those watching from home. All guests enjoyed the four-course dinner with wine pairings hosted by Celia Welch.

2020 Honorary Wine Chairs

2020 was our most unique event year and through a virtual event, we were able to bring our guests a robust panel of winemakers from their vineyards to our homes.  We are grateful to each of them for their support and sharing of their wines and winemaking stories!
