The Sonoma Raffle is back with the chance to win an incredible and priceless experience for two in beautiful Sonoma, California while supporting Chill! SingleThread Farms and Arnot-Roberts have teamed up with Chill once again to raffle off a trip that includes dinner at the three Michelin star SingleThread Farms restaurant, a stay in their inn, a selection of wines from the Arnot-Roberts’ personal library, and much more. We’re selling 1,000 tickets at $30 a ticket for the possibility of realizing $30,000 for Chill’s youth boardsport programs.
“Snowboarding has undeniably shaped our lives in the best of ways. It is through this strong sense of community that snowboarding offers, that we found everlasting friendships, a respect and appreciation for nature and mountain ecology, and a deep connection to ourselves. All roads lead to the mountains for us and we are so proud to support the Chill Foundation in their efforts to bring youth on to the mountain to experience the beauty of the terrain, the strength in this community, and what will likely become a meaningful discovery to themselves.” – Kyle and Katina, SingleThread Farms Founders/Owners
All proceeds from this raffle will support the Chill Foundation and our mission to inspire young people through boardsports and build a more equitable outdoor community. Founded by Jake and Donna Carpenter of Burton Snowboards, Chill has served more than 30,000 participants in 20 locations across 9 countries since 1995. Chill’s programs pair a core value curriculum with the excitement of learning snowboarding, skateboarding, surfing, and paddleboarding to promote personal growth, connection to the outdoors, and an inclusive community to enjoy it with.

Kyle runs the award winning restaurant kitchen and Katina the five acre farm which supplies the produce, flowers, eggs, and olive oil to the restaurant. SingleThread opened in 2016 and became the first restaurant to ever receive a perfect Four Star review by the San Francisco Chronicle upon opening. Within the first year SingleThread was awarded Two Michelin Stars with their Third Michelin Star less than two year into operation. Along with the five guest suites SingleThread is a Relais & Chateaux property and in 2022 was awarded Five Stars from Forbes. In 2022 SingleThread was ranked on the list of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. The restaurant offers an 11-course menu based on the seasons and most importantly the farm in Sonoma while also highlighting incredible seafood from the North Coast as well as from small fisheries in Japan where Kyle and Katina lived for several years. The wine list has over 2,000 individual selections and an 18,000 bottle collection that focuses primarily on California selections of single vineyards designates as well as a large collection of wines from the Old World.
Kyle and Katina Connaughton are the chef and farmer owners of SingleThread in Healdsburg, California. Both originally from East of Los Angeles they have been together since the age of 15 where they first met at a small punk show. From a young age snowboarding has been a big part of their lives and travels. They both grew up at the base of Mt. Baldy and fell in love with the mountains, traveling all over for their work and for their passion for the mountains. They lived for 3 years in Japan's north island of Hokkaido, riding the incredible mountains there, and later in Europe for 5 years exploring the Alps. Now back in California's Wine Country they frequent Tahoe and still find time to travel for snowboarding. Kyle and Katina have been inspired by the Chill Foundation and their incredible work inspiring young people to find that same passion for boardsports, the mountains, and the importance of protecting that fragile environment. They are incredibly proud to give back to that community that has given them so much and support the legacy of Chill for future generations.
Arnot-Roberts was founded in Healdsburg in 2001 by childhood friends Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts. Beginning with one barrel of wine made in their basement, the winery started small and grew slowly by sourcing grapes from some of the most remarkable vineyards in California. Duncan and Nathan grew up together in the Napa Valley and from an early age were immersed in the rhythm of agrarian life surrounded by the vineyards and winemaking of the early 1980’s. Both of their families, while not directly involved in winemaking, were deeply rooted in the community as chefs, coopers, teachers and attorneys in what, at the time, was a small up and coming wine region. After college, the duo followed their passion into the wine industry with Nathan joining his father as a cooper of oak wine barrels and Duncan pursuing winemaking in several renowned wineries in Napa and Sonoma counties.
The focus of Arnot-Roberts is to produce distinctive, site-driven wines that highlight the nature of the unique terroirs in which the grapes are grown. The journey to this end has led Duncan and Nathan to seek out vineyards throughout Northern California and now includes incredible sites in Napa Valley, Sonoma Coast, Santa Cruz Mountains, Santa Rita Hills, Clearlake and Sierra Foothills. Single-vineyard wines are the core of the production as well as a few appellation bottlings that clearly speak of their individual upbringings. Some of the vineyards are old and dry-farmed, some are newer plantings but all are farmed and cared for by passionate and conscientious growers, which is paramount to the fundamental goal of Arnot-Roberts: producing the most honest and expressive wines possible.
