“In Decanting Napa Valley: The Cookbook, I worked with 50 chefs and found John Vlandis’s recipes to be spot on. He has an intuitive understanding of food and wine pairings. He is able to maintain the integrity of each flavor while elevating the components of the dish.”
—Michelle Higgins, Author


“John is really easy to work with, and he knows his stuff. He knows how to create dishes that show wine to its best effect. Actually, I’d have to say working with John takes a lot of the stress out of planning an event.”
—David Long, David Arthur Vineyards
