The AIWF was founded as a 501(c)(3) educational organization. It was established in 1981 by Robert Mondavi, the late Julia Child and others to promote a forum for the study and enjoyment of gastronomy.

The San Diego Chapter of The American Institute of Wine & Food will award scholarships for the pursuit of culinary arts and enology/viticulture in full-time or continuing education programs. The amounts will range from $500 to $5,000 and may be used for study within or outside of San Diego County.

The Chaîne is an international organization with headquarters in Paris, France and is the oldest and largest food and wine society in the world. The American administrative offices are in Madison, New Jersey. About 80 countries have Baillages (Chapters) with about 22,000 members worldwide. The Chaîne was founded in 1248 in France, hence the name of the guild that was formed. It continued to be primarily a guild for chefs until its renewal after WWII when it grew to include restaurateurs, hoteliers, winemakers, and lovers of fine food and wine.

The Chaîne awards scholarships for the pursuit of culinary arts and enology/viticulture or hotel management in full or part-time accredited continuing education programs. The scholarships typically range from $1,000 to $5,000 and the funds do not need to be repaid. All schools must be accredited, and offer continuous relevant hands-on, in- person experience.

Featured Artist

Wine and Food Festival San Diego Bay - San Diego Wine and Food Charity Auctions We are proud to announce
Christopher M. as 2014's Featured Artist at the San Diego Bay Wine & Food Festival.


Dedication. Diligence. Passion. Such are the ingredients that have brought artist Christopher M.’s striking chef renderings into the limelight among both fine art and culinary circles. Known as “The Painter of Chefs,” his expressive, celebratory paintings go beyond literal depiction to honor the most prolific chefs of our time by painting them and preserving them historically on canvas.

Christopher M.’s superior technique has garnered much attention. He was named the official Poster Artist of the 2008 International Artexpo Las Vegas after having painted “Savor the Moment,” a clever depiction of a chef enjoying the fruits of his labor. He has also been honored as the Celebrity Artist & Poster Artist for the San Diego Bay Wine & Food Festival, Poster Artist for the Oregon Food & Wine Festival, among other honors.

“I believe that art should be an extension and expression of the artist’s personality. I also want to create paintings that address things that are important in my life – not just paint pretty pictures. My work is a celebration of food, life and relationships - it feeds me spiritually.” – Christopher M.

These terms and conditions contain legal obligations. Please read these terms and conditions carefully before using this site.


DISCLAIMER
You expressly understand and agree that: (a) this site and any of the services are provided on an "as is" and "as available" basis and that this site makes no warranties, representations or conditions (as used in this section "warranties") of any kind, whether express or implied, including but not limited to implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement and that any such warranties are hereby expressly disclaimed, and (b) this site specifically makes no warranties that it or any of its services, including any content, information, products or services obtained from or through the use of this site or any of the services, will be provided on an uninterrupted, timely, secure or error-free basis or that such services or the results derived therefrom will meet your requirements or expectations.

BILLING INFORMATION VERIFICATION
Orders are processed only after a billing address, and other billing information, has been verified. Occasionally, we receive incorrect billing or credit card account information for a ticket order that can delay processing and delivery. In these cases, Customer Service will attempt to contact you, using the information provided at the time of purchase. If Customer Service is unable to reach you after its initial attempt, Customer Service may cancel your order and may sell your tickets to another customer without further notice.

PRICING AND OTHER ERRORS
If the amount you pay for a ticket is incorrect regardless of whether because of an error in a price posted on this website or otherwise communicated to you, or you are able to order a ticket before its scheduled on-sale or presale date or you are able to order a ticket that was not supposed to have been released for sale, then: The Promoter will have the right to cancel that ticket (or the order for that ticket) and refund to you the amount that you paid. This will apply regardless of whether because of human error or a transactional malfunction of this website.

UNLAWFUL RE-SALE OF TICKETS
Unlawful resale of tickets (or attempted resale) is grounds for seizure and cancellation without compensation. A ticket shall not be used for advertising, promotions, contests or sweepstakes, unless formal written authorization is given by the Event Promoter, provided that even if such consent is obtained, any use of Event Promoter's trademarks and other intellectual property is subject to the Event Promoter's consent.

CANCELLED/POSTPONED EVENTS
Occasionally, events are canceled or postponed by the promoter, team, band or venue. Should this occur, we will attempt to contact you to inform you of refund or exchange procedures for that event. For exact instructions on any canceled or postponed event, please check the event information online or contact us. If a refund is issued, then the Promoter will most likely give you a refund by issuing a credit to the credit card that you used to purchase that ticket, and the holder of the ticket will not be able to physically present it for a refund.

Customer Service typically only offers refunds and/or exchanges based on the promoter's, team's or venue's instructions. Customer Service is not obligated to issue a refund except to the extent that the promoter, team or venue responsible for bringing you the event (1) instructs us to issue a refund, and (2) provides us with the ticket funds necessary to issue refunds. In order to receive a refund or an exchange that may be offered, you will have to comply with the promoter's, team's or venue's instructions or deadlines, which, along with the decision about whether or not to issue a refund or an exchange, may be at the promoter's, team's or venue's discretion.
