Wild Farm & Food Celebration at Tres Sabores

July 27 from 4pm to 8pm

Thank you for your interest. This event has been postponed to Spring 2025. Stay tuned!


Our annual Wild Farm and Food Celebration is an opportunity to bring people to farms and showcase those who are leading the work to address the biodiversity and climate crises. We are so excited to celebrate Tres Sabores this year and share our vision to bring nature back to our farms and ranches.  

We hope that you will join us for an amazing farm to table meal prepared by award-winning chef Duskie Estes, fine wine produced by Tres Sabores and inspiring words from leaders in the regenerative agriculture movement as we raise funds to ensure Wild Farm Alliance continues its vital mission and commitment to a wild and resilient future. Special guests who will share stories of wild farming in action include Ivo Jeramaz of Grgich Hill Estate, Matt Johnson from the Songbird Research Project and Cal Poly Humboldt, and Wendell Gilgert, NRCS & Point Blue Emeritus. 

Partner Host: Julie Johnson, Tres Sabores

Julie Johnson and Sheep in Vineyard

Julie Johnson is the winemaker and owner of Tres Sabores, a winery nestled into the western Rutherford bench land of the Napa Valley. Passionate about food, wine, and the land, for the last 30 years Julie has lived on a certified organic farm, growing wine grapes (Cabernet, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah), pomegranates, lemons and olives, raising her children not to mention Golden Retrievers, Guinea Hens, and sheep. As a California Certified Organic Farm (CCOF), the estate is home to an ecosystem including bluebirds, red tail hawks, and more. From the moment you drive onto the vineyard, you are transfixed by the beauty, and then promptly greeted by the golden retriever ambassadors. Julie’s vineyard is one of the sites in Napa where research is being conducted on the pest-control abilities of Barn Owls and songbirds.


Partner Chef: Duskie Estes
