Opening Night Reception
Pebble Beach Food and Wine kicks off on Thursday at the famous Inn at Spanish Bay which will become a beautiful backdrop for an exploration of outstanding food and wine. The Opening Night Reception features food from 20 top chefs and over 200 wines are available for tasting.
With 20 dedicated wine seminars over the course of the weekend, Pebble Beach Food and Wine is the perfect place for the true wine connoisseur. Whether you prefer to compare a broad spectrum of wines within a certain varietal, discover the diverse range of wines that one winery can produce, or taste how different the same wine from the same vineyard can be depending on the vintage, Pebble Beach Food and Wine offers the experience you're looking for. Whatever tasting you visit, you're assured to be trying the finest wines the world has to offer.
Pebble Beach Food and Wine is your opportunity to learn cooking techniques and skills directly from renowned chefs like Fabio Viviani, Cat Cora and Hugh Acheson. Each chef will give a demonstration that shows off his or her unique skills, providing you with insights you can use in your own kitchen.
Experience extravagant cuisine in exquisite restaurants with exceptional views of the Pacific coastline and the famed golf courses of Pebble Beach. Celebrity chefs unite to create delectable lunches, each one united around a specific theme. Your wine (or, in the case of the Best of Belgium lunch, beer) will, of course, be perfectly matched to your meal.
Dinners at Pebble Beach Food and Wine provide the best in fine dining. Highlighted meals include "The Culinary Olypmics" and "The Windy City Dinner Reunion" which are sure to make for the ultimate gastronomic experience.
