About the event

Join us for an evening with new and limited releases from Melville Winery!

For our April dinner, we're excited to announce the return of Melville Winery and thier fantastic wines from Santa Rita Hills. We'll be pouring some of the classic wines you would expect, including chardonnay, pinot noir and syrah, but also a limited release rose that you won't want to miss. These wines continually score 95+ points and higher and represent some of the best coming from the Santa Rita Hills AVA. Director of Hospitality and Sales and Sommelier, Adam Etchegoyen will be joining us for the evening. In addition to sharing these fantastic wines, Adam will also share the history behind this small production, family run winery. You won't want to miss this fantastic evening of wine, food and conversation!

**Please note: As of 4/6/22 this dinner will be held inside. This will be a permanent change as the patio is no longer available for use for dinners.

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.

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.
