Appellation St. Helena (ASH) will host bASH, our annual food and wine pairing competition on Saturday, April 1st 2017, from 6:00 to 8:30pm.
The event will be held again in the historic barrel room at the Culinary Institute of America. You will visit tasting stations where the wines from over 25 ASH wineries will be paired with savory bites prepared by ‘Rising Star’ students, as well as by esteemed St. Helena restaurants and chefs such as Goose & Gander, Market and Press.
ASH INSTANT WINE CELLAR: With purchase of an event ticket you are automatically entered to win one of three cases of wine from participating ASH wineries at the event. At the end of the evening we will draw to find out the name of the winner; you need not be present to win.
As an attendee, you will also be a judge for the evening. You will explore the art of food and wine pairing and will be asked to vote for your favorite pairing in the professional and student categories.
Last year’s event was a sold out event, with many attendees promising to return for the "Best event in Napa Valley".
We are partnering with the Culinary Institute of America, St. Helena Chamber of Commerce, the Legendary Napa Valley Arts in April, and Napa Destination Council, and we thank Sunshine Market for their support. Proceeds from the evening go to Appellation St. Helena and the scholarship fund of the Culinary Institute of America.
Buy your tickets now before they sell out and we look forward to seeing you there!
