AVON — Maya, the modern Mexican kitchen and tequila bar located inside The Westin Riverfront, will host a special Banfi Wine and Casamigos Tequila event on Saturday starting at 7:30 p.m.

Priced at $40 per person, the event will feature a tasting of six savory and robust wines and the chance to interact with Banfi winemaker Sebastian Rodriguez and chef Richard Sandoval. Guests will also have a chance to sample Casamigos Tequila, a small batch, ultra-premium tequila launched recently by actor George Clooney and restaurant mogul Rande Gerber.

Featured wines will include Banfi’s Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon and the Marques de Concha Carmenere. Casamigos will be pouring its Blanco and Reposado tequilas.

Guests can also enjoy a sampling of Maya’s menu items, including ceviche nikkei, smoked swordfish wonton tacos, smoked pork belly with plantain puree and truffle achiote sauce and New York strip steak with crab mash and truffle chimichurri.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Vail Valley Foundation’s 2015 World Alpine Ski Championships.

Space is limited. To reserve your spot, call Maya at 970-790-5500.

Opened earlier this month, Maya’s menu showcases Sandoval’s vibrant take on traditional Mexican recipes using high-quality ingredients.

The Westin Riverfront offers free on-site valet parking for Maya diners and bar patrons.
