There is dining out for a cause, and then there’s a truly exceptional, never-to-be-repeated evening. The Jackson Hole Wine Auction Signature Private Dinners fall resoundingly in the latter category.

Each June, generous homeowners open up their residences to guests and top chefs and vintners from around the world. Last year was no exception: James Beard award-winning chef April Bloomfield of The Spotted Pig in New York City donated her time and team, much to the delight of guests and their taste buds.


Drawing on her gastropub roots, Bloomfield crafted a special menu for a bevy of attendees who then sampled dishes including delicate sea bream crudo and wood grilled dry aged ribeye. For each dish, the winemakers of Masi Agricola hand-selected the wine pairings; Fonseca Porto was poured for dessert.

The best pairing of all, however, goes beyond even the culinary indulgence and laughter of the evening. All funds raised through the Signature Private Dinners support the Grand Teton Music Festival’s programming throughout the year.

Due to the limited availability of the events, they tend to sell out in a flash. Better snag your tickets before the champagne goes flat.
