About the event

Please join us for an evening of exceptional Napa Valley selections at one of our newest locations!

For our next dinner at our Carlsbad Village location, Napatini, we are excited to share selections from iconic Sonoma County winery, Dry Creek Vineyard! We'll be featuring a fantastic line up of wines from Dry Creek Vineyard! Joe Czesnakowicz, will be joining us for the evening from the winery to share these family produced wines. This very special dinner will feature a great selection of wines, including two with a special bottling, in celebration of their 50th anniversary. This will be a great chance to sample some of the flagship wines Dry Creek Vineyard produces, as well as some of the smaller production stars of the winery. You won't want to miss this memorable evening of wine, food and conversation from both Joe and Chef Erin!

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.
