The reception begins at 5 p.m., and will feature a selection of wines from local winemakers, as well as appetizers created by the Alisal's chef, Pascal Gode.
A silent auction will take place during the reception and feature both local and regional wines, many of them difficult to procure, as well as a Marketplace of local produce and products.
