cELEBRATE the seasons
There’s always something to do at Ventana Big Sur—and we’ll be adding seasonal activities and special opportunities throughout the year, too. Check this page regularly to find out what’s coming up, and also to see great packages and offers for your next Ventana stay!
Ventana Big Sur Winemaker Dinners, a series of exclusive events bringing premier vintners and oenophiles together high above the Pacific, continues Thursday, May 17, with Saxum Vineyards. Saxum Vineyards is focused on producing Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre based blends from the Willow Creek District of Paso Robles. The rocky calcareous soils, steep hillsides, sunny days, and cooling ocean breezes speak through the wines by keeping yields low, picking the fruit at the peak of ripeness, and using a minimalist approach in the cellar. We respect our land and farm everything sustainably for all seven different cuvees: Broken Stones, James Berry Vineyard, Bone Rock, Booker Vineyard, Paderewski Vineyard, Heart Stone Vineyard, and Terry Hoage Vineyard.
Each of these truly artisanal experiences will include a six-course menu from Executive Chef Paul Corsentino and pairings chosen by the winemakers themselves.
We hope you’ll join us at The Sur House for this unforgettable — and limited — gathering with an iconic winery.
