The most delicious day of the year!

Montalvo Arts Center’s historic Villa celebrates its Centennial anniversary in 2012! And once again, for the 9th year in a row, the Villa will be transformed into a food and wine lover's paradise for just one day in June, featuring 21 of the best chefs and restaurants in California, along with 21 of the region’s finest wineries. Chefs and winemakers will chat with guests as they prepare and serve their unique creations. Guests will bid on rare and limited edition wines and special dining and travel packages during a live and silent auction.

Net proceeds from this annual event help benefit more than 20,000 students and teachers, artists and musicians, supported by the Montalvo Arts Center non-profit organization.
