Cornerstone Society 2023

Land Trust Cornerstone Society members gathered together at Castello di Amorosa on October 13th for a festive evening celebrating another successful year in conservation. The event was generously hosted by Dario and Irina Sattui at their authentically styled 14th-century Tuscan castle and winery. During the dinner, we announced the protection of over 4,000 acres since last year’s celebration and since the Cornerstone Society was formed nine years ago, the Land Trust has been able to permanently protect over 40,000 acres!

Dario, a lifelong steward of the environment, has placed 600 acres of land into conservation easements with the Land Trust. No structures will ever be built on these acres – they will remain protected forever. The winery’s vineyards are certified organic, and the winery is Napa Green-certified.

The Land Trust thanks the members of our 2023 Cornerstone Society and offers our sincere gratitude for their generous support of our ongoing mission to preserve Napa’s incredible biodiversity, wildlife corridors, watersheds, forests and unique natural resources in perpetuity.

We wish to once again thank our hosts Dario and Irina for a wonderful evening! Land Trust CEO Doug Parker, the Board of Trustees and staff extend our gratitude to all of these far-sighted local families and organizations helping protect Napa for the long term.
