host your own wine, cheese & food experience

Have knives will travel. Yes, it’s more complicated than that, but for almost ten years I have been preparing special lunch and dinners for guests as a private chef either at the winery or in their own homes. It could be as simple as a hosted wine and cheese tasting where I feature locally produced cheeses from Sonoma & Marin counties along with my wines, a dinner party for 24 guests, or a Christmas day lunch for a family just reunited.

I started Inspiration Vineyards in 2002 after over a decade of teaching about wine. It was a natural extension to pull together experiences that pair my wines with cheeses and food. As a winemaker, there’s no more joy than seeing people experience your craft in the full context in which is was made. To inspire you, I’ve included some possible menus. Feel free to reach out for a quote, references or if you have any questions.

Coming Soon! Beginning in 2021, I’ll be offering a limited number of amazing food & wine experiences where I’ll feature locally produced artisan cheeses and wines near our home in Northern Burgundy. If this is the kind of unique travel experience that you’re looking for, please reach out to get on the list!
