Thomas Schmidt of John Ash & Co. will prepare an unforgettable meal that has been thoughtfully paired with Balletto Vineyards varietals. Winemaker Anthony Beckman and Thomas sat down and tasted each course to ensure food items perfectly matched the chosen wine. Using locally sourced ingredients – vegetables, cheeses, meats, even coffee – the meal itself would be memorable. Add to that a dazzling selection of Balletto Vineyards wines and a beautiful setting in the cellar and the evening will be complete. John and Terri Balletto will be on hand to share the excitement and challenges of growing grapes in the Russian River Valley. Anthony Beckman will share his insights into creating balanced varietals – some delicate and nuanced, some bold.
