Welcome to ARCANE 17

We are pleased to extend to our Upper Crust Members, an invitation to ARCANE. ARCANE is a secret, invite-only supper club. ARCANE is geared toward the adventurous diner. Locations are secret, menus are unveiled the night of the event and the contents of the glass are extra special. For this rendition we'll be presenting an evening of immersion into the world of zinfandel, through the eyes of BACA Winery. Most of the selections are very small production, coming direct from the winery. Erin Hamada-Bigelow will join us for the evening to share the rich history of zinfandel throughout California. 

This event is being held in Mission Hills and will consist of a welcome reception and tray pass, followed by a 5-course seated dinner. Due to the unique nature of this experience, there are a maximum of 17 seats available. The address and parking information will be provided to registered guests 3 days prior to the event. This event will be held inside, with the exception of the Welcome and Sunset Tray Pass (weather permitting). A limited number of overnight accommodations will be available. Should you secure seats to this event, please inquire. Overnight guests will be granted early access on Monday, welcome wine, Tuesday breakfast and 11am checkout. Please note, we will be pouring a minimum of 20 bottles of wine for this event, more than 1 bottle per person. Please do not plan to drive. If you do plan to drive, please let us know in advance so we can limit your pour size.

Each selection will be paired with its own wine inspired pairing, prepared by Chef ARCANE. Chef specializes in pairing food with wine with a slightly different approach than most. The ARCANE menu is crafted around the contents of the glass for the adventurous eater, with fork and knife in hand. ARCANE menus are created Farm to Table, due to this, menus are not provided early.
