A Passage to India: the Maharaja Experience

Maharajas! The word maharaja, literally ‘great king’, conjures up a vision of splendor and magnificence. These princely rulers of India played a role within a social and historical context and were patrons of the arts, both in India and Europe. That resulted in magnificent objects symbolic of royal status, power and identity.

India is a melting pot of cultures, religions and values which help define her character. Find for yourself the elements which make India the glamorous beauty she is, and sample the experiences which bring out her splendor. Sharpen your senses and get your taste buds ready as we embark on a passage to India.

Join Rishi and Aarati Sawhney at their home for a royal maharaja experience. The curries will be hot, but the beer will be cold! Enjoy Indian musical performance followed by dancing.

Saturday, September 26
6:30 p.m. onwards

318 Montoya Way, Danville

Dinner at Uncle Yu’s at the Vineyard Includes a 4-course sommelier tasting dinner and serenade by the sommelier

There is magic in the pairing of Asian cuisine and wine of the Western World. You are cordially invited to join us in experiencing the unfolding of its fascination. As an upscale cuisine, the dishes are carefully prepared by our chef using some of best ingredients available in the market. The wines chosen by the sommelier are from some of best producers and terroirs locally, Wood Family Vineyards and Cuda Ridge Wines. Meet and visit with the wine makers throughout the course of the evening. We intend to make it an unforgettable experience of harmony on the table for you. 

Uncle Yu's Nicholas Liang is a vino-singer. His daytime work and passion both lie in creating new dimensions for the palate as a sommelier. He brings his clients unforgettable experiences and a measure of joy, by matching Western wines with Asian food on the table. During nighttime he is a tenor soloist. He sings songs and opera arias by leading composers like Rossini, Bellini, Bach, Franz Schubert and Mozart; composers like Donaudy and Durante; of course, as well as American folk songs such as those composed by Aaron Copland, and Chinese Folk songs.
