Wines of Dashe Cellars

Advanced Sommelier Charles Fredy will guide us through the wines of Dashe Cellars, a family-owned artisan winery in the heart of Oakland, California’s Urban Wine Country. Founded by the husband-and-wife winemaking team of Michael and Anne Dashe, Dashe
Cellars crafted its first vintage of Dry Creek Zinfandel in 1996. Since that time, the Dashes have focused on producing exceptional, single-vineyard wines from Sonoma County and surrounding regions, using a traditional approach to winemaking.

For this dinner, we’ll celebrate culinary education on Maui and acknowledge the success of the fall semesters’ students. Chef instructor Tom Lelli and the students are creating a feast in five courses, beginning with light hors d’oeuvres passed and presented in the exhibition kitchen. Then relax in the Leis Class Act dining room, where you will enjoy an elegant dinner paired with exceptional wines.
