Calixto Gattas, Chef Extraordinaire

September 4, 2018

We are super excited to bring some fresh culinary energy to town in a few weeks. Our friend, Chef Calixto Gattas, is a classically trained chef, born and raised in Argentina. He has cooked around the world, including a stint in one of the world’s food capitals, San Sebastian, Spain. He currently resides in the beautiful, boho chic town of San Pancho, Mexico, about an hour north of Puerto Vallarta, where he runs the kitchen at Bistro Organico in Hotel Cielo Rojo. When we were visiting San Pancho last December, Calixto drove up an hour and a half north to experience one of the best meals of our lives. Everything from chicken and rabbits to veggies, tortillas, and the most amazing bone broth was cooked over gigantic wood fires. This meal was the inspiration for our upcoming dinner and party.

This past weekend, Calixto came to Paso to do some party prep and sample the wines. He combed the local farmers markets for the best organic products and prepared a fabulous feast for us at Inn Paradiso. His attention to every detail and passion for what he does is inspiring. We can't wait to share his talents with you.

OUTLIER DINNER, SEPTEMBER 21 (International Grenache Day and a full moon!)

The Friday night Outlier dinner will be an elegant affair. We will start on the front patio with cocktails and appetizers. A candle lit sit down dinner on the crush pad will follow. We will feature single release wines from the past that have come and gone, as well as a few that we still have available in our library and, of course, Grenache!  PURCHASE TICKETS


Our afternoon party is later in the day so everyone can enjoy the beauty of the early evening hours. Our new party pad will be ready for its debut (if all goes as planned) with new picnic tables and fresh landscaping. Calixto will have multiple fires burning and will prepare a beautiful feast. We will pour our newly released 2016 Avenger and High Road along with Bête Noire, Vultures Post, Garnacha and Willow Creek Cuvée. PURCHASE TICKETS
