On Saturday, June 18, we hosted The Capulet Ball at the Castello for our Wine Club members and their guests, and spent a magical night under the stars as San Francisco's We Players performed a fully-interactive selection from Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend this fantastic event, and a special thanks to the incredibly talented We Players for such an incredible performance! Please enjoy a few of our favorite photos from the evening below:
