In Napa, Lamborghini was proud to partner with Flexjet and Far Niente Wines, sponsoring an auction lot that promised “The Ultimate Tastemaker’s Experience” and raised $300,000 for the benefiting charities. The lucky winners will journey into Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region – experiencing round-trip private jet travel, Lamborghini track driving and limited vintages of wine from Nickel & Nickel and Dolce, in addition to a five-night stay at the Grand Hotel Majestic.
The fun continued Fathers’ Day weekend with Lamborghini hosting a kick-off dinner with BEST NEW CHEF Michael Voltaggio at a Draw Drive Estate in advance of the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen. Joined by actress Ali Larter, the premier guest list of tastemakers and influencers enjoyed various five-star courses paired with Far Niente Wines that celebrated the winning Auction Napa Valley lot and Lamborghini’s 50th Anniversary in style.
FOOD & WINE’s restaurant editor Kate Krader gushed over the event, referring to the dinner as her “Aspen Highlight” and Ali Larter and Michael Voltaggio as her “Aspen heros,” in addition to articles in Aspen Peak, DuJour Magazine, and The Hollywood Reporter that all praised the culinary success of the event. In addition to Voltaggio, chefs Tom Colicchio, Andrew Zimmern, Johnny Iuzzini and Hosea Rosenberg all had their turn behind the wheel of a Lamborghini throughout the weekend, taking to their Twitter and Instagram accounts to share their excitement.
