Monday, February 18, 2013 – President's Day
The Reception in the Barrel Room
To celebrate the day, we will feature California wines that have been
served at White House State Dinners over the years and the hors d'oeuvre
inspired by those dinners.
The Ceremony in the Hall of Fame
Bronze bas-relief sculptures of our 2012 inductees, crafted by
renowned American artist Lawrence Newlan, will be unveiled by the
inductee or a family representative. Our emcee, Karen MacNeil, chair of
the CIA's Rudd Center for Professional Wine Studies, will then preside
over the introductions of the Hall of Fame Inductees, Class of 2013.
The Dinner in the Teaching Kitchens
Guests will move to the famous Teaching Kitchens of the CIA at Greystone
where they will watch our chef-instructors and some of our top students
in action preparing dinner for the walk-around meal. Everyone's
favorite congressman, Mike Thompson, will also be at the range. Wines
will be served by Hall of Fame winemakers assisted by students of our
Advanced Wine and Beverage Certificate Program.
