Big Sur Food & Wine Opening Night

We are honored to host the opening reception for the Big Sur Food & Wine Festival—an evening to remember featuring cuisine from 15 of the region’s top chefs and culinary partners, wines from 25 highly regarded wineries, and a variety of live entertainment.

Join us under the stars on Thursday, Nov. 7, from 6-9 p.m. as we welcome culinary luminaries such as Fabrice Roux of Roux, Tim Woods of Carmel Valley Ranch, and Michelle Estigoy of Cultura, along with many others. Even better, it’s a celebration for a good cause, as the festival supports local nonprofits that benefit health, safety, education, and the arts.

Space is limited, and tickets will go fast, so click here to reserve your spot today!
