Reynolds Family Winemaker Dinner

New for 2021, SFFWF adds a Saturday Night Winemaker Dinner for VIP ticket holders. Served at the Ridgecrest private residence directly behind The Myrtles, this VIP event will feature a five-course menu prepared and served by Chef Van Pellegrin of City Group Hospitality’s Rouj Creole restaurant, and paired with select wines by the Reynolds Family Winery in Napa, California. Head winemaker Steve Reynolds will be with us to introduce his family’s acclaimed winery, and to guide us through his selections. 

* This ticket also includes admission to Sunday's Food & Wine Festival, and VIP enclosure access throughout the event.
