For our March dinner, we're excited to announce a special event with Dry Creek Vineyards, celebrating the golden anniversary. We'll be pouring some of their classic wines, their flagship Bordeaux Style blend The Mariner and a very special 50th anniversary sparkling chenin blanc! Joe Czesnakowicz will join us for the evening to share these fantastic wines and the history behind this small production family run winery. You won't want to miss this fantastic evening of wine, food and celebration!

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.

Minor changes can usually be accommodated. Diary Free and Vegan requests CAN NOT be met, though reduced dairy and vegetarian typically can be met.

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. Instead of passing on these additional fees to customers, we have decided to absorb them. This however means that when a customer cancels a reservation, at any point, 5% of the ticket total is non-refundable, as these processors do not issue refunds for any reason.
