The Cambria Historical Society’s second annual Vine Dining at Stolo Family Winery promises some new surprises Sunday, Oct. 12.
Veteran chefs Matt Beckett of Linn’s Restaurant and Steve Kniffen of the Sea Chest will be joined by Indigo Moon Cafe’s chef Dena Somers and Robin’s Restaurant chef William Ouderkirk.
The gourmet courses will be served al fresco and paired with specialty wines selected by the Stolos. Music will be provided by the Brett and Julia Mitchell Trio, and shuttles will ferry guests from Coast Union High School to the Santa Rosa Creek venue beginning at 3 p.m.
Last year’s event sold out almost immediately. Seating is limited, so guests must reserve prepaid tickets, $125 per person or $900 for a table of eight, available at www.brownpapertickets.com, on the website www.cambriahistoricalsociety.com, and at the Cambria Historical Museum, 927-2891.
As part of the celebrations, the group will sponsor guided bus tours of local ranches and farms Monday, Oct.13, departing from the Veterans Hall at 8:30 a.m. and returning about 3:30 p.m. Tickets, which cost $100 per person, include lunch and beverages and must be purchased in advance through the previously mentioned sites. The informative tour highlights Cambria’s farm-to-table economy.
