We’re thrilled to be back on the calendar for our second year of the Seasons event series. We had so much fun last year and when we heard how much fun our guests had, we knew this needed to happen again.
Seasons is a curated series of culinary adventures brought to you by Nopalize. Our goal is to connect more deeply to our food system by engaging all the senses and exploring food, community and the meaning of place firsthand. In apple orchards and wine cellars, plentiful pastures and 100-year-old barns, we discover the origins of some of Northern California’s finest artisanal products, and meet the people that bring them to our tables.
All 2015 tours begin at Nopa, where we convene for coffee and freshly baked pastries to fortify us for the journey. From there, a refurbished, solar-diesel-powered school bus ferries us to our destination, where we tour and learn through direct experience. Each trip culminates in a fabulous multi-course meal featuring the products we’ve just encountered paired with regional wines, prepared by a celebrated guest chef and served on location. We break bread with our hosts and indulge in an afternoon of decadent dining and convivial discussion before we head back to the city with spirits roused and bellies sated.
