Enjoy a tantalizing selection of chef-inspired bites paired with Monterey country wines. Savor an hour of aperitifs and maybe stay for dinner after.
Start the evening with a VIP food and wine reception. Come sample wines, each paired with a Chef-inspired creation. Wine reception starts at 6 p.m.
If these wines inspire your taste buds, please also sign up for Monterey Country (2-course) wine dinner that follows at 7 p.m. Just go back to our calendar and see the dinner at 7 p.m. on the same day.
A separate registration for $30 is required for the 2-course dinner that follows.
For a truly great experience we recommend signing up for both the reception at 6 p.m. and the dinner at 7 p.m., but you could also sign up for just the reception or just dinner.
Each experience requires a separate ticket.
