WINEMAKERS, MUSICIANS, COMEDIANS, POLITICIANS TO PARTICIPATE IN A ONE-OF-A-KIND INTERPRETATION OF THE STORY OF PASSOVER IN A LIVE SIT-DOWN SEDER. The “Napa Seder-Beyond 4 Cups” transcends religion and highlights the cultural connection to the historic Jewish liberation from slavery and universal struggle with freedom. Wine is a prominent theme in the traditional Passover Seder, and Michael Dorf, City Winery owner and founder wants to ask the question “why on this night in Napa should we only have 4 cups of wine?”. Mr. Dorf has produced his unique celebrity driven Seder in NY since 1988, taken it to Chicago in 2012 and will premier it in Napa on March 29th at City Winery Napa—one week prior to the official start of the holiday.
For the Napa Seder, over 10 winemakers and winery owners will sit down with various musicians, comedians, and political thinkers, including Israeli Superstar, David Broza in an engaging Seder luncheon. The interpretive Seder will offer inspiration, fun, and a unique cultural connection between wine, music, tradition, and peace.
This event is a chance for Dorf to combine his deep connections to the entertainment industry (prior to launching City Winery he created and ran New York’s iconic music venue, The Knitting Factory) with his love of wine and entertaining. Special guest David Broza was recently featured by Vanity Fair writer Jordan Hoffman, who opened his story with the line;

“He did more for the Middle East peace process in eight days than Secretary of State John Kerry has done in two years. Is he a diplomat or religious leader? No, he’s a singer-songwriter, and if no one else is going to try and heal the world, he will.”

The event will open with a viewing of the new film East Jerusalem/West Jerusalem, produced by Broza, it is a spectacular & important film showing how music can bridge people in Israel and Palestine, even in a longtime war zone. Film will screen at 1:30PM, followed by Q&A, then a short performance by Broza during the Seder.

“This Seder is an opportunity for the community to explore our connection to our ancestors in a one-of-a-kind evening that could only happen in an open, free society, cosmopolitan and sophisticated city like Napa. “ Said Michael Dorf
