bASH Wine and Food Pairing Competition
Appellation St. Helena (ASH) will host the bASH wine and food pairing competition in the historic barrel room at the Culinary Institute of America. You will visit tasting stations where the wines from over 30 ASH wineries will be paired with savory bites prepared by ‘Rising Star’ students, as well as by esteemed winery chefs and St. Helena restaurants. Attendees serve as judges, tasting each combination and voting on their favorites throughout the evening.
We have assembled a team of judges who are industry professionals to taste through all of the pairings, and rate them on three criteria – pairing, taste, and creativity – and they will be selecting recipients for the critic’s choice best pairing awards.
As an attendee, you will also vote with your tokens, and we will be awarding the top three student teams, plus a professional team the people’s choice best pairing.
Attendance is limited to 300 people and all guests must be 21 or older. Buy your tickets now before they sell out and we look forward to seeing you there!
