Exceptional custom blended wines – Napa Valley Cabernet and Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc, in addition to the Alexander Valley Cabernet - round out The Setting’s collection. The wines are sourced from grapes that come from some of the best vineyards in California, handpicked based on their location within each appellation.

Whether you want to explore the ABCs of wine and cheese pairings (or wine and chocolate!) at a “Pairing Principles” demonstration, learn how to use the best of your farmers’ market finds in a Farm to Table Chef’s class, sip seasonal cocktails from the garden in the Somm’s session or simply relax and dine at one of CIA’s award-winning onsite restaurants, there is something for everybody’s culinary appetite.
