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.

Meet the Wine Makers, Therese & Dan Martin: Making world class wine has been our goal from the start. From our vineyards to fermentation, to barrel, to bottle its a process that we are a part of and enjoy every day. Sharing vegetables from our garden, gourmet food from our kitchen, and our wine, its our tradition by design and a wonderful way for us to celebrate our bounty of harvest and winemaking.

Stephen Storrs and Pamela Bianchini-Storrs began Storrs Winery with the harvest of 1988. Both trained as winemakers at UC Davis, they worked at a number of wineries including Domaine Chandon, Felton-Empire Vineyards, and Almaden prior to starting their own. With their first vintage, they focused on the unique appellation in their backyard – the Santa Cruz Mountains. Having worked in this terrain for years, they appreciated the cool climate's Burgundian advantage. Click to learn more about Storrs Winery>>
