TASTE: Wine, Beer, Food and Music

About the Event:

Boasting an array of local and regional wineries, breweries, eateries and live music, TASTE is the Robert Mondavi Institute’s annual fundraising event. Robert and Margrit Mondavi believed that great wine, music and art enhance our quality of life—TASTE celebrates all three! Be among the first to hear about our upcoming events by signing up for our newsletter.

UPDATE: TASTE 2021 is sold out! TASTE returns on October 16, 5:00 to 7:00 pm. This year we will host under the beautiful trees of the olive grove and sycamore grove that lay at the heart of the Institute. The expansion increases the space for guests and food and beverage providers to accommodate safe distancing. We will limit capacity to 250.

This year's beneficiary is Aggie Compass Basic Needs Center. The Aggie Compass mission is to help mitigate the effects of food and housing insecurity on students, while working to change policy, systems and environments that will affect long term change.
