Derrick Fox (aka Derrick Peltz) is a professional drummer turned Chef. Born in Fort Myers, Florida, and living in Los Angeles for the past 10 years, Derrick has toured as a drummer for numerous acts, on some of America’s biggest stages. As long as he can remember, Derrick has also had a natural talent and love for food. In late 2014, Derrick decided to submit for a chance to compete on the world’s biggest cooking competition, MasterChef. Not only was Derrick the “fan favorite” of Season 6, he proved week after week (as the show aired) that his artistic food, risk-taking, and dynamic personality would lead to a huge career in the culinary world. After completing MasterChef Season 6 as runner-up, Derrick has traveled across the United States doing personal appearances, judging cooking competitions, as well as cooking for high-profile events and recognized clients. Chef Derrick’s pop up dinners offer you the opportunity to enjoy delicious and visually impressive dishes. The food is a fusion of his unique journey, inspired from childhood memories, MasterChef experiences, and his travels…to bring you a taste of the Rock ‘n’ Roll life style!

Hill Family Estate was born out of the desire for the family to work together – sharing the experience of crafting fine wines that showcased the grapes that Doug farmed and then introducing those wines to the consumer at a tasting room in their hometown, and American foodie capital, Yountville, California.

We are thrilled to have Ryan Hill, Vice President and Director of Sales for Hill Family Estate. He attended local schools before graduating from Sonoma State University with a degree in Wine Business Strategies. He is very active in the Napa community and currently belongs to Native Sons, Yountville Kiwanis, Yountville Chamber of Commerce and the Next Generation groups. Prior to becoming involved with Hill Family Estate, Hill worked in the hospitality business as a dishwasher, busser, food runner, server and sommelier. Hill has worked at Gordon’s, Bouchon, George’s at The Cove and Nine Ten restaurants. His love for food and wine developed in the restaurant business and has carried through to Hill Family Estate. Ryan resides in Yountville with his family, where he continues to grow the business while celebrating his family roots of farming in the Napa Valley.


Victor Roman’s passion for expressing himself through art motivates him to sketch and paint whenever he can. Sometimes, you can find him sketching people on the train or in a casino but on most days, you will find him painting in his studio until the early hours of the morning. Painting in the night after work, shows dedication and after 3 years of study at Palomar College, Victor’s talent has grown exponentially.

The emotions that his art evoke have developed in complexity and because of this, the viewer must think twice about what they are looking at to figure out their own interpretation of his art. Art pieces include depictions of artillery, child soldiers and portraits of mankind in various states of mind.

The art is masterfully painted on wood, a feat accomplished by few artists.  If you have the opportunity to visit him in his studio, he will be happy to turn up the bass for you on his sound system or play a timeless record on our record player.


This rock meets classical combination creates a symphonic, epic sound with a bit of edge. “This band proves that the violin rocks!!”-Alternative Press 

Front man Ryan T. Hope and violinist Rebecca Faber from rock band The Lifeline join forces with our recently local and amazingly talented guitarist Geno Lenardo for an acoustic classical rock performance at Gracey Lane Farm.

Lifeline released their debut independent album “Where There Is Life, There Is Hope” and was quickly followed up by their second and third albums “For All Who Triumph” and “Reflections Of Hope”. “For All Who Triumph” allowed people to see the band blurring the line between musical genres by not only mixing different styles but also by bringing a concept to the entire record. “Our goal with an album has always been to leave a person with a feeling of satisfaction at the end. Like at the close of a movie or your favorite book,” says vocalist Ryan T. Hope. “You remember each chapter and the lessons it taught you. By the end you’ve gone through a journey that’s made you stronger and more self-aware.” The bands next endeavor consisted of a series of music videos put together to create a short film called “Trilogy.” Songs like “Crashing Waves” and “Romeo and Juliet” have caught the attention of on air-personalities and rock stations and were quickly added to the rotation.

The “Underworld: Awakening” soundtrack, which features singer Ryan T. Hope, released to coincide with the  movie. The song entitled “You Won’t See The Light” is a collaboration between Hope and former Filter guitarist Geno Lenardo. Other notable artists on the soundtrack include Evanescence, Linkin Park, The Cure, Lacuna Coil and Lacey Strum of Flyleaf.
