Appellation St. Helena (ASH) invites guests to its 12th annual bASH on Saturday, April 1 from 6:00 to 8:30 pm. at The Culinary Institute of America Greystone (2555 Saint Helena Highway, St. Helena). bASH is an annual wine and food pairing competition where the wines from twenty ASH member wineries will be paired with savory bites prepared by teams of ‘rising star’ students at the CIA and professional chefs. Tickets are $175/person and must be purchased in advance here.

The event will be held in the historic barrel room at the Culinary Institute of America. Guests will visit tasting stations where Appellation St. Helena wines will be paired with savory bites prepared by ‘Rising Star’ CIA students.

Attendees will vote with tokens and ASH will be awarding the PEOPLE'S CHOICE BEST PAIRING to the top three student teams and a professional team.

“Each year bASH is a sell-out event. It’s a ton of fun and many attendees promise to come back the following year,” explained ASH Board President Katie Simpson. This event has been called the "best wine and food event in Napa Valley.”

With purchase of an event ticket guests are automatically entered to win a six-pack of wine from wineries in the St. Helena appellation. At the end of the evening there will be a drawing to choose three raffle winners.

Attendance is limited to 300 people and all guests must be 21 or older.

ASH is partnering with the Culinary Institute of America and the St. Helena Chamber of Commerce. ASH thanks Sunshine Market and Le Creuset for their generous donations and support. Proceeds from the evening go to Appellation St. Helena and the scholarship fund of the Culinary Institute of America.
