You will visit tasting stations where the wines from Benessere Vineyards and over 30 ASH wineries will be paired with savory bites prepared by ‘Rising Star’ students, as well as by esteemed winery chefs and St. Helena restaurants. Attendees serve as judges, tasting each combination and voting on their favorites throughout the evening.  

We are assembling a team of judges who are industry professionals to taste through all of the pairings, and rate them on three criteria – Pairing, Taste, and Creativity – and they will be selecting recipients for the CRITIC'S CHOICE - BEST PAIRING awards. This year's professional will be announce soon!
