About the event

Please join us for an evening of exceptional small-production, Santa Barbara County wines with Owner/Winemaker Doug Margerum!

Please join us at our La Costa location for our next wine dinner, featuring wines from acclaimed winemaker, Doug Margerum! In addition to some classic Central Coast varietals, we are excited to share a unique, full cinsault and his flagship red blend. Doug Margerum has been involved in the Santa Barbara food and wine scene for over 35 years. In 2001, Margerum Wine Company began in a tiny 240 square foot cold room behind Brander Vineyards. The philosophy: return wine making to its previous form of production – handcrafted and personal. Today, Margerum Wine Company produces limited quantities of wines made from grapes grown from their Estate Vineyard and grapes purchased from other top vineyards from in and around Santa Barbara County. The 18-acre Estate Vineyard is planted exclusively to Rhône grape varietals. Doug works with the top vineyards from the cool, eastern end of the valley in Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara to the cold vineyards of Sta. Rita Hills towards the western end of the valley, creating exceptional, yet affordable wines. You won't want to miss this memorable evening of wine, food and conversation from both Doug 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.
