Dinner that evening was held at Russian River Valley’s Chalk Hill. Currently owned by Bill Foley, the property was bought by Foley in June 2010 from Fred Furth, who purchased the property in 1972 with his former wife Peggy. The estate comes with this olympic sized dressage horse arena, which Fred had constructed for Peggy.

Dinner that evening was an elaborate affair, with four courses and 17 wines.

The food was prepared by resident chef Didier Ageorges, while the wines were introduced by Charlie Olken, respected Californian wine writer and owner of the Connoisseur’s Guide to Californian Wine.

Hopefully Chalk Hill had a glass washer to rival the scale of its equestrian facilities.

    I’m not sure who the international guests represented but it looks like a great event.
