Eat, drink, & be merry
at our 2015 Food & Wine Classic

Food & Wine 2015

Prepare your taste buds: Silicon Valley's premier culinary event benefiting Montalvo is coming! Join us on Sunday, June 7 for our annual Food & Wine Classic, bringing together some of the region's best restaurants, top wineries, and YOU—for an unforgettable evening on our beautiful grounds.

Sample gourmet fare from some of the most celebrated restaurants in the Bay Area and enjoy tastings from many of the region’s finest wineries. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on rare & limited edition wines and special dining & travel packages during a live and silent charity auction. Proceeds will go to support Montalvo and its arts and education outreach programs.

4:30-5:30pm: VIP Reception
See what's new: Cool whites, big reds, and Kokkari
The elegant precursor to the main event, this year’s reception is sure to be the best yet: Kokkari Estiatorio—Zagat’s 2014 #1-rated San Francisco restaurant—will provide their award-winning cuisine exclusively at the reception. Guests will also enjoy valet parking, chilled champagne, and special tastings of rare private cellar vintages (both white and red) guided by Jeffrey Perisho, Wine Director of the Plumed Horse.

5:30-8:30pm: Classic Event
Chefs and winemakers will chat with guests as they prepare and serve their unique creations. Bid on limited edition wines and special dining & travel packages during a live and silent charity auction.

Last chance for
The Awesome Ocean

Banana Slug String Band

The Banana Slug String Band is known for their wacky energy and catchy tunes that teach both kids and adults about the earth— plants, mammals, mollusks, and more. Join us this Sunday, March 22, at either 11am or 1pm (two shows!) as they perform their new show, The Awesome Ocean.

Based on the band's award-winning Slugs at Sea and the Project MARE Oceans Week curriculum, this show focuses on the aquatic habitats of the West Coast and the beauty of the ocean. Favorite Slugs songs such as “Tidepool Boogie” are featured and inspire young people and their families to care for the marine ecosystem.

Don't miss your last chance to see this great show! Afterwards, take a walk with your family and enjoy Montalvo's beautiful grounds and lush green lawn. There's no better way to spend a Sunday.

Get psyched: Summer Concert lineup on its way

Summer Concerts

If you've ever seen an evening concert in our beautiful outdoor Lilian Fontaine Garden Theatre, you know it's one of the best places in the South Bay to see a show. And if you're not a member of Montalvo, now is the time to become one—because we are getting ready to announce our Summer Concert season for 2015!

Members get presale privileges so they can purchase tickets up to five days before the general public, and our premium seats get you so close to the stage you'll feel like the performer is playing just for you! These are the seats that sell first, so you don't want to miss out on them.

This summer's lineup features world-class musicians we're sure you'll be excited about. Also back will be Dining on the Terrace—our elegant pre-concert dinner option that allows you to have a meal and a glass of wine on the beautiful front veranda of our historic Villa as the sun sets over the Great Lawn.

So join us today and be first in line for tickets to a show this summer! Just click below or call Chris Wilcox at 408-961-5849. Not sure about your membership status? Give Chris a call with any questions.
