We know that good food and good wine go hand in hand. That is why we work with the best local chefs and wineries to provide the ultimate in food and wine pairing. When appropriately paired, wine and food have the ability to enhance each other’s flavors, making them more pronounced, and render the entire tasting a more satisfying and enjoyable one. Learning the nuances of wine pairing is an unmatched experience.

What could be better than a properly paired food and wine? All of that paired with the beautiful Academy Center of the Arts, music and shopping. And best of all, the event benefits the Academy!
