About the event

Don't miss an exciting evening of Italian wines at our newest pop-up location in Del Mar!

We are thrilled to announce our newest pop-up location! The Del Mar area has been a long-planned location addition to our monthly pop-up wine dinners. This beautiful, outdoor space is just off the downtown area of Del Mar and boosts a beautiful outdoor deck, perfect for our intimate wine dinners. For our first dinner we're excited to announce a fantastic line up of 5 wines from Italian producer, San Felice. In addition to classic Italian varietals like Chianti and Vermentino, we will also be pouring a special 50th Anniversary Super Tuscan and a Brunello. Brian Reardon will be joining us for the evening from the distributor to share these wines and San Felice's rich history. Chef Erin will prepare an elevated, seasonal pairing menu with an Italian theme. You won't want to miss this memorable evening of wine, food and conversation!

*Please note, this will be an outdoor event, a light sweater or jacket is recommended. This location features an abundance of outdoor heaters and umbrellas to protect guests from the elements.

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.
