The event will be held again in the historic barrel room at the Culinary Institute of America. You will visit tasting stations where the wines from various ASH wineries will be paired with savory bites prepared by ‘Rising Star’ students, as well as by esteemed winery chefs and St. Helena restaurants.

You, as an attendee, will vote with your tokens, and we will be awarding the top three student teams, plus a professional team the PEOPLE'S CHOICE BEST PAIRING. Sip, Savor and VOTE!

Each year is a sell-out event, with many attendees promising to return the following year for the "Best wine and food event in Napa Valley!"

ASH WINE RAFFLE: With purchase of an event ticket you are automatically entered to win a six-pack case of wine from participating ASH wineries at the event. At the end of the evening we will have a drawing to find out the names of the 3 raffle winners!

We are proud to partner with the Culinary Institute of America and the St. Helena Chamber of Commerce. We thank Sunshine Market, and Le Creuset for their generous donations and support. Proceeds from the evening go to Appellation St. Helena and the scholarship fund of the Culinary Institute of America.
