Whether you’re a Californian wine lover or simply want to discover more about this exciting wine producing country, this is the event to attend. California is on a roll right now, with a succession of superb wines, from vineyards dedicated to pushing quality ever higher. Visitors often note a pastoral, "laid back” approach to viticulture, but behind that lies some of the greatest vineyards and wines on the planet.
The weekend begins with the Peter Michael Winery dinner where you will have the rare opportunity to try the latest and back vintages of Peter Michael wines perfectly matched with a world-class five course dinner prepared by our esteemed chef Daniel Galmiche.
