Relais & Châteaux Gourmetfest

David Fink of L'Auberge Carmel, a luxury inn and restaurant in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea has a reputation of building successful teams and bringing talented people together mix that with his passion for food and wine and it would be no surprise to learn that he was one of the original architects of the now famous International Masters of Food and Wine event. As a member of the International Board of Directors of Relais & Châteaux, he was determined to launch a new festival partnering with Relais & Châteaux and in 2014 he did just that with the first annual Gourmetfest.

GourmetFest is an incomparable annual four-day extravaganza featuring an exclusive roster of Relais & Châteaux Chefs and fine wine estates. Over the course of four days guests indulge in over 18 events, including a strolling welcome party, wine tastings, rarities events, cooking demos, lunches and dinners, off-site tours and lunches, VIP parties and a closing Taste of the World. Each event provides a unique blend of amazing chefs and impressive wine, offering experiences not easily replicated.

The Event takes place in the Winter/Spring each year in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California and includes an online charity that benefits remarkable organizations. For more information about the individual events and tickets please see below.
