Held in the historic barrel room at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), guests visit tasting stations where wines from about 30 wineries will be paired with savory bites prepared by culinary students, as well as by esteemed winery chefs and St. Helena restaurants. Attendees also serve as judges, tasting each combination and voting on their favorites throughout the evening, to determine the "People's Choice" awards. Attendees consistently call it "the best food and wine event in Napa Valley." 

This year will feature new "Critic's Choice" awards for Best Pairings, voted on by five industry professionals. The judges are: Susie Heller – James Beard Award recipient, food media maven and cookbook author; Leslie Sbrocco – James BeardAward recipient, lauded wine personality and critic; Virginie Boone – Wine Enthusiast contributing editor and wine author; Christopher Sawyer – Master Sommelier; and Soleil Ho – San Francisco Chronicle restaurant critic.

bASH is produced in partnership with the Culinary Institute of America, Sunshine Foods Market, and the St. Helena Chamber of Commerce.
