About the event

Join us for an evening of new touring the different wineries of Paul Hobbs!

For our September dinner, we're excited to announce our first dinner featuring wines from Paul Hobbs! We've selected a fantastic lineup of wines that will showcase 5 of the different viticultural areas Paul Hobbs has vineyards and/or wineries located. This will be a fun journey through different regions, including a very special selection that pays homage to his family and upbringing in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. The evening will culminate with the Paul Hobbs Winery Napa Valley Cabernet. Paul Hobbs Regional Manager, Maria Brown will be joining us for the evening to share and discuss each wine selection and the rich history behind Paul Hobbs and his various wine projects. You won't want to miss this memorable evening of wine, food and conversation!

**Please note: As of April all wine dinners will be held inside. This will be a permanent change as the patio is no longer available to La Costa Wine Co.

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.
