CULINARY CLASSICS - FALL PROGRAM
We invite you to join us for our new fall line-up of culinary programs this season - announcing the return of our culinary workshops series, designed for both the novice cook and culinary connoisseur. Our Chefs prepare each dish in the winery's state-of-the-art Culinary Theatre where they readily share their expert knowledge about ingredients and techniques that are essential to the creation of great food. From kitchen staples to epicurean curiosities, come and enjoy their passion and craft.
As a highlight of the season these three-hour sessions are interactive, informative and delectable. Our popular Dynamics of Food & Wine series includes several new themes and "encore" performances brought back by popular demand. As always, these classes sell out quickly, so be sure to reserve early!
