The competition is fierce as area chefs prepare their signature dishes at the Valley Vine & Harvest Throwdown. Each mini-entrée is expertly paired with fine wine for guests to experience and then vote for their top choice. The chef with the most votes receives the honor of Top Chef of the Valley. Guests also have the opportunity to bid on unique live and silent auction items or win a bottle of wine from the wine wall.
Grand Cru VIP Event
Just prior to the Throwdown event, guests are invited to attend the Grand Cru VIP Event fit for a foodie. For more information or to purchase tickets to this exclusive pre-party, click here.
