The restaurants below were in attendance at the 2016 Grand Tasting. Each restaurant brought in a signature food dish and selected a wine that they felt best paired with their selected house specialty. Guests of the grand tasting had tabs on their wrist bands and had the opportunity to vote for their favorite restaurant and wine pairing combination during the event. At 3:30 p.m., the winning restaurant, Mountain Crust, was announced and received $500 to the charity of their choice, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America!
