Time to Indulge in the Winemaking and Culinary Arts of St. Helena, Napa Valley’s Epicenter for Food and Wine
On Saturday, April 1, Appellation St. Helena (ASH) is hosting the premiere annual wine and food pairing event, bASH. The party, which draws repeat attendees from all over the country, provides guests with an incomparable opportunity to taste wines from one of Napa Valley’s most respected viticultural areas alongside the culinary power players of the region. Energy will be high as attendees sample the pairings prepared by each ASH winery and culinary team and vote for their top three favorites.
bASH is a celebration of the legacy of acclaimed St. Helena winemaking that began in the mid-1800s with Napa Valley’s most innovative vintner leaders, and today’s contemporary cohort featuring some of the most famous cult wine vineyards and winemakers in the world. It also highlights the incredible chefs that bring added notoriety to our community. At the 2016 bASH there were bites served by Cindy's Backstreet Kitchen, Goose & Gander, Market, PRESS, and others, along with winery chefs, and 18 CIA culinary teams made up of “Rising Star” students selected by the faculty of the Culinary Institute of America. This year attendees can expect over 30 winery/chef teams showing off an array of their most lauded ASH wines and pairings.
ASH represents more than 50 St. Helena wineries and 20 wine growers and presents bASH in partnership with the Culinary Institute of America, Sunshine Foods Market and the St. Helena Chamber of Commerce.
Tickets are $125 and available now on the web site.
