The Big Sur Food & Wine Festival
Tickets go on Sale September 12th!
Committed to never having Big Sur’s needs vanish with the next big news, The Big Sur Food & Wine Foundation, that puts on The Big Sur Food & Wine Festival, is focused on the sustainability of the economy and culture of the Big Sur community.
Ventana Big Sur, Post Ranch Inn, Henry Miller Library, Big Sur Roadhouse, The Big Sur Lodge and the beautiful private properties open to us for the weekend, all have been so generous with us again this year.
Now more than ever, we have become stewards and educators about this beautiful landscape of Big Sur where we hold our festival. Every year, we ask that you to tread lightly, leave no trace and respect your neighbors…by inviting them over!”
Thursday morning kicks off the festival with the Magical Mystery Tour of the weekend which sells out within hours, followed by Opening Night at Ventana Big Sur. Featured Chefs, Somms and winemakers are heading the line up for each event.
The Friday morning winemaker’s panel features Tablas Creek 30th Anniversary Retrospective Tasting in the Loft at Ventana, followed by the afternoon magic of The Pinot Walkabout inside Sierra Mar’s Chefs Garden at Post Ranch, where resident Executive Chef Johnny Black will be joined by local chefs to pair their delicacies with the one and only varietal at the event.
Friday night offers a selection of outstanding dinner opportunities and shuttles from Carmel to enjoy them. The annual Sommelier’s dinner happens Friday at the Big Sur Road House. and the culinary, winery and sommelier talent that graces the tables on this night is sublime. The wines lead the food and astonishes the taste buds of guests each year. With only 30 seats available for this dinner, it sells out in minutes.
New for 2019 but going back to some roots for the Festival, we return to The Big Sur Lodge for “A Dinner in Sustainability” our collaboration with The Monterey Bay Aquarium featuring nationally renowned Chefs Virginia Willis, William Dissen and Stephen Phelps.
Historic Deetjen’s Big Sur Inn will host two seatings for the Pioneers of Santa Barbara Wine Maker’s Dinner.
Saturday, we host our annual Hiking with Stemware™, one of our signature events for 40 guests to have access to gentle to moderate hiking trails not open to many…all while their glasses are never empty. A private chef experience and a featured wine or three are presented along the way.
Saturday also presents an invitation-only Live Auction Experience. An opportunity to bid and win exclusive lots of once in a lifetime experiences. Please inquire by writing Aengus Wagner directly at email@example.com
Saturday night we get to kick up our heels at The Henry Miller Library for one of our marquee events, the Wine & Swine. This is our wrap up party and live entertainment makes for a night of dancing under the redwoods that you won’t forget.
Sunday you’ll find friends ordering up Bennies & Bubbles at Deetjen’s to wrap up the weekend and reminisce about the weekend.
We want to showcase the best chefs and our friends in the wine community who love coming to Big Sur to share their talents in intimate settings not found anywhere else.” “That’s why we do this every year…to keep the community strong and vibrant by having net proceeds gifted in grants to our beneficiaries. Last year we gave grants totaling $80,000 to Big Sur Health Center, Big Sur Fire, Mid Coast Fire Brigade, The Henry Miller Library, The Big Sur Grange, Stage Kids, Big Sur Fiddle Camp and the schools in Big Sur and the South Coast.
