About the event

Please join us for an evening of exceptional Sonoma Valley selections at our Carlsbad Village location!

For our next dinner at our Carlsbad Village location, Napatini, we are excited to share selections from iconic Sonoma Valley winery, Alexander Valley Vineyards! We'll be featuring a fantastic line up of wines from this family owned and operated winery, including their flagship premium Bordeaux blend, Cyrus. Stewart Vandenberg will join us for the evening, from the winery, to share these fantastic wines and their extensive wine history. This very special dinner will feature a great selection of classic Sonoma County varietals, including chardonnay, pinot noir and zinfandel. We'll round out the dinner with a fantastic cabernet and AVV's flagship Bordeaux style blend. This will be a great chance to sample some of the award-winning wines Alexander Valley Vineyards produces, and hear first-hand about the winery's pioneering spirit. You won't want to miss this memorable evening of wine, food and conversation!

Please be sure to note your branch of service in the optional field during checkout. Limit 2 seats per Veteran. Thank you for your service!

Each selection will be paired with its own wine inspired dinner course, prepared by Chef Erin Sealy. Chef Erin specializes in pairing food with wine, with a slightly different approach than most. Prior to creating a menu, each wine is tasted and reviewed and then she creates a food pairing, highlighting the nuances of each wine. This concept creates a dinner and pairing experience with layers of complexity and unique creations which exemplify the enjoyment of each wine. With a passion for food and wine, Chef Erin delights attendees with a detailed account of the pairing concept and cooking techniques that create each course. Expect a fabulous evening of wine, food and educational insights! Seating is limited. Please see below for additional dinner details and a registration link.

Lastly, please note that your total cost for the dinner includes two processing fees that are collected by third parties and do not transfer to Wine Pairs Events.
