What could be the region’s preeminent wine and food event has lined-up the who’s who of El Dorado county’s culinary and winery stars!

In an intimate setting, guests will have the opportunity to rub-shoulders with the winemakers themselves, such as Chaim Gur-Arieh, owner-winemaker of C.G. Di Arie Vineyard & Winery, Taylor Gibson, winemaker at Mediterranean Vineyards, Brian Bumgarner, owner-winemaker of Bumgarner Winery, and Guy Herriott, owner-winemaker at Fenton Herriott Vineyards. More of the region’s winemakers will be on hand as well pouring specially selected, rare and reserve wines from their cellars that are not generally available for the public.

Only top restaurants could match the quality of the wines showcased. To that end, a list of El Dorado County’s finest will be on hand presenting hors d’ oeuvres to pair with the evening’s selection of wines. Placerville’s Farm Table, and Heyday Café, plus El Dorado Hill’s C Knight’s Steakhouse, Milestone, and the new, Osteria Moto, have luscious items planned for the Galas.

Tickets and more info

A silent auction of limited hand-picked offerings and live music will cap the evening off. Tickets are $85 per person for either of the two Friday events.
