Celebratory Weekend Kicks off with Plant-Based Dinner and Live Wine Auction at Lawrence Wine Estates’ Burgess Cellars

WineaPAWlooza is a two-evening event filled with premium wine, plant-based cuisine, and Jameson’s mission at its core: improving animal welfare through global collaboration and education for the benefit of all life. The 11th annual WineaPAWlooza begins with a curated wine tasting of Lawrence Wine Estates’ collection at the iconic Burgess Cellars in the Oak Knoll AVA. This gorgeous estate is at the forefront of regenerative farming with esteemed winemaker Meghan Zobeck. A modicum of highly allocated wines will be savored from Lawrence Wine Estates, including Heitz Cellar, Stony Hill, Burgess, Ink Grade, and Haynes Vineyard, throughout the evening. The event reaches a crescendo with the highly anticipated Live Wine Auction including inimitable experiences, travel to incredible international destinations, and of course, unparalleled wines! The Auction kicks off with acclaimed artist, Amy Burkman, crafting an inspired and spirited painting live on-stage, and is led by personality and Auctioneer, Fritz Hatton, under the magical stars of Napa Valley. The cuisine on Friday evening will be curated by Chef Daniel Gomez-Sanchez formerly of La Toque, French Laundry, and winner of Food Network’s Chopped Grill Masters Napa, and on Saturday night by Tamearra Dyson of Souley Vegan and Deborah Blum of Goatlandia Kitchen, featuring plant-based and local ingredients.

WineaPAWlooza Weekend Culminates in a Grand Tasting with Famed Vintners Followed by a Concert to Remember by WRISTROCKET at Raymond Vineyards.

The weekend culminates in a Grand Tasting of 50+ vintner rockstars at the iconic and legendary, Raymond Vineyards.

“We are thrilled to be celebrating our 11th Annual WineaPAWlooza! I am incredibly humbled and grateful for the extreme generosity of our vintner partners who have not only shown up year after year to support us on this journey, but also for the grandiose experiences and incredible and sought-after wines they are willing to share to benefit all of us, the animals, and the planet. I am also brought to tears by the resilience, strength, and incredible generosity of our Jameson family, community, and supporters – we cannot do it without you. By ourselves, we can do so little, but together we can do so much! We are looking forward to an epic WineaPAWlooza and epic years following, serving the Bay Area and beyond!”

– Jameson Humane and WineaPAWlooza Founder, Monica Stevens


Jameson Humane is an impact-driven nonprofit organization that collaborates and educates to inspire change in animal welfare, not only in local communities but around the world. Monica and David Stevens founded Jameson Humane in 2014 as a 501(c)(3) registered nonprofit to improve animal welfare through global collaboration and education for the benefit of all life. The organization was named in memory of the Stevens’ beloved dog Jameson, an adopted Great Pyrenees who lived to the age of 14 and inspired the spirit and mission.

Jameson Humane operates multiple solutions-based programs to create a truly unique animal welfare organization that is unlike any other animal rescue or sanctuary for the benefit of the greater community and its animals. Every day, Jameson’s work is guided by how animals, people, and the planet are all inextricably connected.


WineaPAWlooza is Jameson’s annual fundraiser, an event that has earned its place as one of the top ten wine events in the country according to Wine Spectator magazine. The money raised from this sought-after event supplies the critical funds necessary for Jameson’s programs to improve the state of animal welfare and save animals’ lives. Because of WineaPAWlooza, Jameson has been able to help thousands of animals and their humans in our community, and beyond, through vital programs that work across the inextricable web between animal welfare, our community, and the planet. This year’s event will help ensure these programs thrive as we continue to effect real change.
