Wine Spectator’s Best of the Best 2018

We don’t know about you, but we can’t think of a better scenario: unlimited food from the best chefs in the business, unlimited wine from the best vineyards in the world, and great music to boogie down.

Wine Spectator’s Best of the Best event showcased the most phenomenal food we’ve ever had and obviously, incredible wine. 60 of the nation’s top chefs showcased their most gourmet samplings to pair with over 100 wines rated 90 points or higher on Wine Spectator’s scale.
