Wine and Dine on the Mountain will kick off the 2012 culinary season in Highlands, April 13th and 14th, by pulling together a sizzling line-up of fine wines, superb food and fine art. Guests of all events will watch the wines come to life, as Thomas Arvid paints for the occasions.
The “Wine and Dine on the Mountain” weekend is a sensory extravaganza that begins with a “Blue Jeans, Bluegrass Spring Harvest Barn Dinner” at the Farm at Old Edwards on Friday, April 13th. Pisoni Vineyards Wines will be on the tables throughout the dinner. On Saturday, Wolfgang’s Restaurant and Wine Bistro will host David Arthur Vineyards with winemaker Nile Zacherle and four-course dinner starting at 6:30 p.m.
Named one of the top “25 Artists You Should Know” by US Art magazine, Thomas Arvid receives critical acclaim for his monumental compositions of wine and his mastery of light, depth and reflection. Inspired by the grace and hospitality of the southern culture in which he lives, Arvid’s compositions are an invitation to take the time to appreciate sharing a great bottle and good conversation with friends.
“I can’t think of a better place to spend an evening with great friends,” says Arvid. “Highlands and events like this – with wonderful food, wine and culture – truly foster camaraderie, similar to what I try to evoke in each of my paintings. I’ll have my easel with me; it’s going to be another inspiring weekend in the mountains.”
Throughout the weekend, guests will enjoy art, music and wine-inclusive culinary including: Blue Jeans and Bluegrass Spring Harvest Barn Dinner at The Farm at Old Edwards with Thomas Arvid painting live and featuring Pisoni Vineyards with Jeff Pisoni; David Arthur Vineyards Wine Dinner Saturday at Wolfgang’s with Thomas Arvid painting live; Special Spa and shopping discounts throughout the weekend.
“Last year’s event really set the bar for a fun weekend of wine and food,” says Richard Delany, President of the Old Edwards Inn and Spa. “We’re looking forward this year to offering an even more diverse assortment of experiences, all tied together with great wine, food and music.”
Wolfgang Green, owner of Wolfgang’s Restaurant and Wine Bistro, says, “We’ve always had great success with our wine weekends, and last year’s Thomas Arvid event was no exception. By partnering with other businesses like the Old Edwards Inn and Spa, we can pull together offerings to celebrate spring by bringing guests to Highlands for some art, music, superb wine and fine dining—an unbeatable combination!”
