Arts & Entertainment ‘Wine and Dine on the Mountain’

“Wine and Dine on the Mountain” will kick off the 2011 culinary season in Highlands April 29 through May 1, by pulling together a sizzling line-up of fine wines, superb food and fine art. Guests of all events will watch the wines come to life, as Thomas Arvid paints for the occasions.

The “Wine and Dine on the Mountain” weekend is a sensory extravaganza that begins with a “Blue Jeans, Bluegrass Spring Harvest Barn Dinner” at the Farm at Old Edwards on Friday. Whitehall Lane Wines will be on the tables throughout the dinner. On Saturday, Wolfgang’s Restaurant and Wine Bistro will host W.H. Smith Winery four-course wine dinner starting at 7 p.m. On Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., a Live brunch at Madison’s Restaurant will top off the weekend.

Named one of the top “25 Artists You Should Know” by US Art magazine, Thomas Arvid receives critical acclaim for his monumental compositions of wine and his mastery of light, depth and reflection.

“I can’t think of a better place to spend an evening with great friends,” says Arvid. “Highlands and events like this – with wonderful food, wine and culture – truly foster camaraderie, similar to what I try to evoke in each of my paintings. I’ll have my easel with me; it’s going to be another inspiring weekend in the mountains.”

Throughout the weekend, guests will enjoy art, music and wine-inclusive culinary including:

— Blue Jeans, Bluegrass and Spring Harvest Barn Dinner, The Farm at Old Edwards with Thomas Arvid painting live and featuring Whitehall Lane Winery and Vineyards

— W.H. Smith Winery Wine Dinner Saturday at Wolfgang’s with Thomas Arvid painting live and featuring live music

— Jazz, Wine, Art and Brunch at Madison’s Sunday. Wines included in brunch price.

— Special Spa and shopping discounts throughout the weekend.

Wolfgang Green, owner of Wolfgang’s Restaurant and Wine Bistro, says, “We’ve always had great success with our wine weekends, and last year’s Thomas Arvid event was no exception. By partnering with other businesses like the Old Edwards Inn and Spa, we can pull together offerings to celebrate spring by bringing guests to Highlands for some art, music, superb wine and fine dining—an unbeatable combination!”
