An afternoon of exquisite art, gorgeous architecture, fascinating company, and delicious food
Sunday, October 7, 2018, 1:30-8pm (travel time included)
30 winning bidders will be welcomed into three incredible Pebble Beach private estates each with stunning views, art, wine, and cuisine. Guests will gather at Montalvo at 1:30pm to be driven to Pebble Beach in a private shuttle—or meet the shuttle at a designated spot in Pebble Beach if you’d prefer to drive yourself.
You will disembark at the art-filled home of Lorna Meyer and Dennis Calas overlooking the ocean near the Carmel Gate. Sip Tondre Wines and nibble hors d’oeuvres while you view Lorna’s stunning collection of California artists including Stephen De Staebler, David Ligare, Danae Mattes, Manuel Neri, Paul Mays, Nathan Oliveira, Wayne Thiebaud, and Peter Voulkos, as well as a number of Carmel artists.
The second magnificent home on this tour is located on breathtaking Stillwater Cove, on the fifth hole of the world famous Pebble Beach Golf Course. Constructed of stone and glass, it boasts jaw-dropping views of the ocean. We will be greeted by Montalvo’s Life Trustee, Sally Lucas, and invited to view her beautiful art collection, featuring the work of several former Lucas Artists Fellows, and enjoy sumptuous fare paired with wine from Bernardus Winery.
Finally, guests will take a short stroll to the gorgeous home of Angela Hemingway Charles and her husband Glen Charles, co-creator of Cheers and writer for such classics as Taxi, Mary Tyler Moore, and Bob Newhart. It will be a feast for all the senses as guests take in the spectacular views, the Charles’ fabulous international art collection, and savor delicious desserts prepared by Angela and Glen’s private chef, Christophe Bony, formerly Executive and Sous Chef at famed Carmel restaurants Casanova and La Bicyclette. Karen Bria, Fine Wine Specialist with The Estates Group, will be pouring Vintage Ports from Taylor-Fladgate as well as 90+ rated 2015 Napa Valley Cabernets and Bordeaux Blends from Pahlmeyer and Cakebread.
Bidding starts at: $1,000 per person
