Join us for The Art of Food & Wine! This is a unique opportunity to sample some of the best cuisine and wine that Northern California has to offer in the elegant setting of Montalvo’s historic Villa.

2023 Event

Sunday, September 10, 2023

Guests will sample gourmet food from dozens of top-rated restaurants—including some with Michelin stars—and enjoy tastings from many of the best wineries in Northern California. Mingle with fellow foodies, bid on live and silent auction items, and enjoy a Sunday evening in the beautiful setting of Montalvo’s historic Villa and stunning grounds.


VIP ticket buyers will receive valet parking service, expedited check-in, exclusive access to a VIP wine tasting with sommelier Jeffrey Perisho, and more. Jeffrey is a wine expert who has received an advanced sommelier credential through the Court of Master Sommeliers. He is currently the sommelier at the Michelin-rated Plumed Horse, one of only 100 restaurants that has won Wine Spectator’s top honor, the Grand Award, for its sixth year in a row.

Also enjoy Scotch tasting with Glen Moray Scotch ambassador Patrick Sterling. Sterling has a long career of opening new restaurants and revamping and revitalizing bar programs throughout the country. His passion for the product is only surpassed by his passion for people and hospitality; his Scottish blood compels him to wander and enjoy the richness of new people and cultures.
