About the event

Please join us for an evening of exceptional small-production wines from Thacher Winery!

Please join us at our La Costa location for our next wine dinner, featuring wines from Paso Robles winery, Thacher! We'll be featuring a fantastic line up of wines. Assistant Winemaker Brenna Hill will be joining us for the evening to share these exceptional selections from Thacher Winery, including a limited-production Pet Nat! This family run Paso Robles winery pushes the bar in winemaking, working with obscure varietals and unique vineyards. With an abundance of different varietals and blends, Thacher has something for everyone. For this dinner we'll feature a combination of unique and staple varietals that excel in the Central Coast and Paso Robles viticulture regions. This is great opportunity to try some unique varietals and blends, firsthand from winemaker Brenna Hill. You won't want to miss this memorable evening of wine, food and conversation from both Brenna 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.
