About the event

Please join us for an evening of Washington wines!

For our first dinner of 2023, we're excited to announce our first dinner featuring wines from Sleight of Hand! We've selected a fantastic lineup of wines that will showcase some of the exceptional Washington State vineyards this winery sources from. From a friendship founded in the love of wine and music, Jerry Solomon and Trey Busch started Sleight of Hand in 2007.  At a time when Washington wines had little traction in Southern California, these two pioneers helped put the Walla Walla region on the map by creating exceptional wines and conversation starting labels. You won't want to miss this memorable evening of wine, food and conversation from both Jerry 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.
