Farm to Table Wine Dinners
Local Wine and the Finest Food Local Growers Have to Offer
Eight years ago Chaminade Resort & Spa conceptualized an intimate dinner with local wine and the finest that local growers and producers had to offer, in a natural setting overlooking the Monterey Bay. In May of 2008 the first Farm to Table Wine Dinner was hosted with a humble crowd of 12 guests. Today Chef Kirsten Ponza and her team, will host the 8th Annual Farm to Table Wine Dinner series, with dinners expected to be at maximum capacity.
