Pigs and Pinot 2014

California or Bust for the Ninth Annual Pigs and Pinot Celebration

Pigs and Pinot will be celebrated this year for the ninth time, taking place on March 21-22, 2014, at Hotel Healdsburg in Sonoma County in Northern California. During this Pigs and Pinot weekend celebration, Chef Palmer will host a series of intimate dining and educational events. As part of the celebration, some of the Master Sommeliers and other international celebrity chefs will reveal some of the greatest Pinot Noirs in the world, with perfect pork pairings.

In order to attend the 2014 Celebration of Pigs and Pinot, attendees must buy tickets which became available for purchase on Thursday, January 16th. The tickets and packages available for this pig-tastic event are limited and net proceeds accumulated from the celebration will benefit ‘Share Our Strength Charities and Local Scholarships‘.

At this annual event, the following Chefs will participate: Amanda Freitag, Frank Crispo, Bryan Voltaggio and Philippe Rispoli. For the Gala Dinner, the following Winemakers will attend: Michael Browne – CIRQ, Pierre Emmanuel – Domain Pierre Gelin, Jesse Katz and Bill Foley – Roth/Te Kaiaranga, Tom Rochioli – Rochioli Vineyards & Winery and Mike Weersing – Pyramid Valley Vineyards.

This event begins on Friday with the ‘Taste of Pigs & Pinot’. The Pinot Cup is an annual wine competition in which 60 handpicked pinot noirs compete in a competition of blind-tasting which is held by a world-renowned judging panel. At this event, guests will sample 60 highly praised Pinot Noir wines which are competing in the Pinot Cup competition. In addition to the 60 Pinot Noir, this year’s guests will also be offered two Rosé wines.

With these offered wines, guests will also be served a variety of scrumptious pork dishes which include charcuterie, grilled pork, homemade sausages, pates and other exclusive creations from Chef Palmer and Dustin Valette, Dry Creek Kitchen Chef de Cuisine, guest celebrity chefs and local Healdsburg restaurants.

Saturday, March 22, 2014, brings the Tournament of the Pig which includes Charlie Palmer and Guest Chefs. This event takes places between the hours of 10:30 am and 12:30 am at Relish Culinary Adventures, Healdsburg, and the tickets cost $125.00. Guest chefs attending will be divided into two teams, and given a whole pig. Each team will need to this succulent creature to create two specific dishes, using ingredients they can find at Dry Creek Kitchen. A judging panel will regulate the competition and the audience will get an opportunity to taste the dishes.

Later Saturday, between 1 and 3 pm, the Ultimate Pinot Smackdown will be held. In this event, Master Sommeliers Drew Hendricks, Fred Dame, Keith Goldston, and Michael Jordan will march a wine seminar. Each of the four Master Sommeliers will sell 4 Pinots and only one of them can win the competition.

The Gala Dinner starts Saturday evening at 6:30 – 7 pm and will begin with a Spoonbar’s Swine and Wine Dinner where the guests will be served pork dishes accompanied by two of the Sonoma County’s premier Pinot Noirs. After the dinner, the guests will continue the celebration at Hotel Healdsburg, where they will be served drinks and dessert.
