The Main Event will highlight the talents of winemakers, celebrity chefs, brew masters, fishermen and artisanal food producers who call Central Coast home.
This four-day culinary exploration will play host to a two-day Main Event held at the historic Santa Margarita Ranch on September 29 and 30, 2012. The Main Event will highlight the talents of winemakers, celebrity chefs, brew masters, fishermen, artisanal food producers, Sunset experts, and many more artisans and producers from Ventura to Santa Cruz who call the Central Coast home.
Wander the Marketplace and taste from over 100 local wineries, sample small bites dished-up from local restaurateurs, and enjoy vendors showcasing their craft. Relax in the Estrada Garden with a beer from one of the local breweries, listen to music from the Music Stage, or stroll through Sunset’s Garden and Backyard Farm. You can meet the families and growers at the heart of the Central Coast’s incredible produce at the Farmer’s Market to Meal. In-depth wine and cooking seminars are offered throughout the weekend and give attendees a deep-dive into a specific varietal or cooking technique. Cost is $20 per seminar with purchase of your main event ticket. Finally, speed through the Infiniti Test Drive track on the ranch airstrip.
Now that you know you love The Central Coast, time to start looking for a vacation home!
