Hospice du Rhone 2011, A Wine Event that Takes its Food and Fun Seriously
It warms up my heart to see a wine event that takes its food and its fun seriously.
At Hospice du Rhone 2011 (April 28-30) in Paso Robles, each meal from Soirée to Rosé Lunch to Farewell BBQ will offer dishes created for the occasion by handpicked chefs.
Event kicks off with Rhone' n Bowl on Thursday April 28 from 6:30 to 10:00 PM where you can bowl along fellow attendees, sommeliers and winemakers of course. Chef Ryan Gromfin of Central City Market (Santa Maria, California) and his team will be manning the food stations.
French flavors will dominate for Rose Lunch on Friday, by Chef José Dahan of Et Voilà Restaurant in San Luis Obispo, California with Rosé wines provided by AOC Tavel.
Magnums selected by 22 sommeliers and 35 producers from around the world along with music and magic will make you hungry for Chef Clark Staub Full of Life Flatbread (Los Alamos, California) menu on Friday, April 29 from 6:30 to 10:00 PM.
The week-end closes with Farewell BBQ on Saturday, April 30 from 6:30 to 10:00 PM and The Hitching Post from Buellton, California serving an authentic California BBQ.
Please note that Rhone'n Bowl and Soiree are not included in the Week-End Package.

I have a seat reserved at the tasting table, all I need is for ink to dry on my plane ticket.
