This event offers the singular opportunity to visit four separate homes in one spectacular evening. Gallivant amongst the tightly knit and fun-loving neighborhood of Wildhorse at Prospect. Mere steps away from each other, this evening will certainly take on the persona of a jovial block party as you skip from home to home, sampling a different course at every stop. The views alone are worth it, as the homes all sit on the edge of thousands of acres of National Forest land, looking unobstructed down into the serpentine valley of the East River as it winds its way towards the dramatic buttresses of Gothic and the knife ridge of Mount Belleview. Similar in design, diversity is expressed through four distinct personalities. The inimitable location offers peace and quiet in a dramatic setting, close to ski and bike trails, yet minutes from town.
The dynamic and personable chef duo of Denise and Kevin Reinert are the perfect match for this fun-loving event. They are the owners of Gunnison Valley’s newest culinary sensation -  Burnell’s Farmhouse Eatery, receiving rave reviews and top ratings mere weeks after opening last summer. Named after Kevin’s maternal family in Illinois, and capitalizing on the farm fresh concept the name implies, Burnell’s features inventive gourmet meals focusing on local ingredients. Denise comes to the kitchen with over 22 years in the culinary industry. The couple owned and operated Crested Butte’s Elizabeth Anne Bed & Breakfast serving decadent breakfasts and connoisseur-driven evening wine and food pairings for their guests. Their creative fare finds its muse in two gastronomic powerhouses – New Orleans and Santa Fe –  combined with Denise’s Southern roots and proclivity towards elevated comfort food.
