About the event
Don't miss this perfect holiday event, featuring 4 different Champagnes from Thiénot!
After a very lengthy construction, La Costa Wine Co. now has a new, functional parking lot and lovely patio! We'll be taking advantage of our warm fall weather, by hosting this dinner outside on the patio. The patio does have multiple heaters and is sheltered from western breezes. *Please note, in the event of rain, this dinner will be moved indoors. *Please note, in the event of rain, this dinner will be moved indoors.
For our December dinner, we're excited to announce the return of presenter Olivier Tonnerre, who will present selections from Champagne house, Thiénot! Thiénot is a family run champagne house, which started in 1985 by patriarch Alain Thiénot. This dinner will feature 4 champagne selections, including a very special vintage blanc de noir. Each selection will be paired with a dinner course, plus dessert. You won't want to miss this fantastic evening of bubbles, food and libations!
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! Please see below for additional dinner details and a registration link.
