Gaggenau Helps Raise $130,000 for Charity

Irvine, CA - Raymond Vineyards and Gaggenau Home Appliances teamed up for a joint auction lot for the 32nd annual Auction Napa Valley, offering a one-of-a-kind food and wine experience spanning from Napa to Thailand via a stop-over in Singapore.

Gaggenau’s cooking exhibitions in Southern California and Singapore will host the generous winner of the auction lot for an exclusive one-on-one culinary cooking experience by Gaggenau and its world-renown star chefs in Southern California and Singapore.

The seven-day journey begins with a private dinner in Napa Valley at the estate of Raymond’s proprieter, Jean-Charles Boisset. From Napa, the winner will fly to Los Angeles for a cooking demonstration at Gaggenau’s world-class culinary center before being whisked away to Singapore for a three-night stay at a luxury resort, along with a culinary education at a two-day all-inclusive cooking academy.

The winner will then head to Thailand as the personal guest of Raymond Culinary Director Michel Cornu at Villa Galanga, an exclusive villa nestled on its own tropical palm plantation. The three-night stay will include fine meals prepared by Chef Cornu, a picnic on James Bond Beach and island excursions to exotic markets and premier beaches.

Upon return, the winner will be among the first to receive Chateau Baccarat, the new line of crystal stemware from the venerated French crystal house, Baccarat. The adventure concludes with a 15-year vertical tasting of Raymond Vineyard’s flagship Cabernet Sauvignon, Generations.
