Culinary Education Center
The Cucina at Gervasi Vineyard offers fun and inspiring educational experiences marked by delicious food and memorable wines. Two new types of demonstration cooking classes are now being offered in The Villa Grande, led by GV Executive Chef Jerry Risner. Study Chef Jerry’s technique as he prepares 3-4 enticing dishes, and taste his creations along with a glass of wine (cash bar also available). You’ll also receive a recipe packet to help you recreate your Cucina experience at home.
To ensure the safety of our guests while observing social distancing guidelines, tables will be sold in blocks of 6-10 tickets.
Sample & Sip: Cucina Demo
Watch as Chef Jerry prepares three dishes, and enjoy small samples of each one with a glass of wine. Plan to stay for dinner at one of our restaurants after the demo.
Wine & Dine: Cucina Demo
Chef Jerry will prepare four dishes during this enhanced dining event. Enjoy a generous portion of each course, accompanied by a glass of wine. You won’t go home hungry after this delectable demo!
Cucina Gift Certificates can be used toward demonstration classes. Expiration dates on all Cucina Gift Certificates have been extended one year.
We are not currently offering interactive, hands-on Cucina classes or private Cucina classes at this time due to COIVD-19 restrictions and regulations.
