Gourmet Retreats


These hands-on cooking classes will turn your wine country visit into a Gourmet Retreat. Geared to avid home cooks and food enthusiasts of all levels, the classes will give you new skills and recipes to use at home to prepare restaurant quality dishes. The small class size (limited to 8 participants) ensures you will receive personalized instruction from the chef instructor.

‘Farm to Table’ cooking is embraced using the freshest seasonal ingredients from the edible landscape, lush garden and best of market selections to prepare the recipes. All cooking classes include printed recipe handouts and multi-course meal which is paired with wine.

There are several options for classes at Gourmet Retreats – choose dates from the published schedule of classes. Or gather friends, family or co-workers for a private cooking experience created customized to your group.

Join us at Gourmet Retreats for an informative and delicious cooking experience. All you need to bring is your appetite for knowledge and fun
