From Friday, March 16 through Saturday, March 17, 2018, chef Charlie Palmer takes over wine country with top food and wine talent by his side for the 13th Annual Pigs & Pinot weekend, sponsored in part by DCS Appliances by Fisher & Paykel® and Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan.
In light of the devastating fires that recently impacted wine country, this year’s fundraising efforts will have a specific focus on raising money for North Bay and wine country fire relief funds.
Held at the award-winning Hotel Healdsburg and Chef Palmer’s acclaimed restaurant, Dry Creek Kitchen, the annual charitable celebration has become a favorite amongst wine and pork enthusiasts eager to taste the creations from over 60 wineries and more than 20 chefs. Since the event’s inception in 2006, Pigs & Pinot has raised over one million dollars for No Kid Hungry and Sonoma County charities.
“The fundraising efforts of our 13th annual Pigs & Pinot celebration are incredibly critical this year,” says chef Charlie Palmer. “In response to those affected by October’s fires, this year’s fundraising efforts will have a specific focus on wine country’s fire relief funds. Given the present need in our own backyard, we aim to raise more money than any previous year.”
