Primo vino, philanthropy and luxe auction lots starred on September 10 at Napa’s Silverado Resort & Spa during the 26th Annual Cabernet for Connoisseurs, a flagship event that raised $1.3 million for Family House San Francisco.

Led by co-chairs Scott Miller and Spencer Wang, 260 guests at this Wine Country fete — which, since inception, has raised some $14 million — also honored the devotion of attorney Meg Nibbi and her husband, Bob Nibbi, a Family House trustee and president of Nibbi Brothers General Contractors. This born-in-EssEff, third-generation family business (founded by his grandfather) initially connected with Family House on a remodel of the nonprofit’s former Sunset district free, home-away-from-home for families of children undergoing cancer treatments at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital.
