Stewards is pleased to present Gourmet Walk in the Woods, the reincarnation of the beloved Gourmet Hike! Staggered by 20 minute intervals, the event starts in the Armstrong Redwoods Picnic Area with appetizers and music, followed by a leisurely stroll along the Pioneer Nature- and Discovery Trails.
 
On trail, guests will be treated to food, wine & beer pairings, and dessert stations sponsored by local chefs, wineries, and breweries. The experience concludes in the Redwood Forest Theater with dessert, wine, music, poetry reading, and a silent auction.
 
We look forward to seeing you there!
