  • And many more…

The gala event will be a crowd-pleaser, bringing together top chef, Matt Manning, presenting a three-course wine pairing dinner with each course paired with a wine selected by different top sommeliers. Guests will participate in an exciting live auction of some incredible wines between courses.

Attendees will enjoy every bite and sip, knowing that 100% of proceeds go directly to helping SASA facilitate its mandate to certify potential sommeliers and coordinate competitions.
