About the event

For our first dinner of 2022, we're excited to announce a Winemaker Dinner with Bret Urness and Levo Wines. These very small production wines focus on Rhone varietals from Ballard Canyon (Santa Barbara) and Willow Canyon (Paso Robles). Bret will join us for the evening to share his current releases and the history behind his 10th vintage. You won't want to miss this fantastic evening of wine, food and libations!

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.

Though we cannot guarantee special requests for menu changes, please contact us (email/phone above) if you have any food allergies or special considerations and we'll do our best to accommodate! Please understand that this is pop-up experience, it is not a restaurant. A temporary kitchen is built to accommodate the dinner and resources are very limited. Minor changes can usually be accommodated. Diary Free and Vegan requests can not be met, though reduced dairy and vegetarian typically can be met. Please DO NOT buy tickets with the assumption that any special request will be met, please check with us first.

There is a 48-hour full-refund policy. We apologize that cancellations within 48 hours of the event cannot be refunded.

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.
