Tribute & Benefit in Recognition of Dan Gulbronsen
April 28, 2019
Compline Restaurant & Wine Bar, 1300 First Street, #312, Napa, CA
On behalf of Jett Gulbronsen and the Guild of Sommeliers Education Foundation* we invite you to two very special fundraising events in Napa to endow a SommFoundation scholarship in the name of our late friend and colleague Dan Gulbronsen. Many of you are well aware of Dan’s passion to help aspiring young professionals achieve their goals in the wine industry. Please join Dan’s many friends in this celebration of his life and his passion.
During the afternoon of Sunday April 28, 2019 at Master Sommelier Matt Stamp and Ryan Stetin’s wine bar and restaurant, Compline, there will be a tasting of old and rare wines from the SommFoundation cellar with light passed hors d’oeuvres. Several of Dan’s Master Sommelier friends will be present to describe the wines and join in the sharing of stories and reminiscing of Dan’s life. During this event we will also be auctioning off some special wines from deep in the SommFoundation cellar.
During the evening of Sunday April 28, 2019 there will be a seated four course dinner paired with what Dan referred to as the Killer B’s. We will be serving some of Dan’s favorite Burgundy, Barolo, and Brunello with a few additional surprises from the SommFoundation cellar. Chef Yancy Windsperger has selected a special menu to honor both Dan and the wines to be served.
