    A Passage to India: Bollywood Nite

    Sharpen your senses and get your taste buds ready as we embark on a passage to India. 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.

    India is home to the biggest film industry on the planet. The term Bollywood was created by conflating Bombay (the city now called Mumbai) and Hollywood. It is the story of Hindi cinema in all its glory and abundance.

    Join Rishi and Aarati Sawhney at their home for a musical, melodramatic, Bollywood style evening. The curries will be hot, but the beer will be cold! Enjoy Bollywood music and dance performance.

    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.

    The Sandra J. Wing Healing Therapies Foundation provides funds so that cancer patients can experience the immediate benefit of complementary therapies to help alleviate the side effects caused by radiation and chemotherapy.

    These therapies, which complement traditional cancer treatment, can make a huge difference in the quality of life and recovery of cancer patients. Healing therapies included are acupuncture, acupressure, therapeutic massage, guided/visual imagery, and deep breathing meditation. The Foundation grew out of local resident Sandra Wing's own experiences battling cancer.
