The Chefs, Vintner and Sommelier
We are in the exciting phase of selecting the very best chefs and local wines. Please subscribe to our blog for updates on the selection process.
We are talking with local farmers now to source fresh, delicious foods for our dinner. Subscribe to our blog to learn who will be joining us.
A local artist will be painting the evening scene en plein air as we dine. The original work and prints will be available for purchase after the event through our partner, the Wildling Art Museum. And a local musician will be playing mellow tunes as we dine. Blog updates will announce the painter and musician soon.
Ticket price includes the farm tour, meal, wines, tax, gratuity and live dinner music. A portion of the proceeds will go towards ecological restoration of the ranch wildlands.

Attire is casual. We recommend comfortable yet functional footwear and clothing for walking around on an active ranch and bring a sweater or jacket for the afternoon shade.
