About the event
Please join us for an evening featuring exceptional Italian wines and holiday cheer!
We are very excited to announce our newest pop-up location, which puts us back in La Mesa! For our December dinner at this location, we'll feature fantastic Italian wines from the Pasqua Family! Alex Kanakaris will be joining us from Pasqua for the evening to share and discuss each wine selection and the rich history of the winery and grape-growing regions. This will be a great opportunity to try out 5 different Italian wines, all of which are deliciously approachable, yet great examples of classic Italian styles. To showcase these wines, Chef Erin has created a holiday themed menu with an Italian flair. You won't want to miss this memorable evening of wine, food, conversation and holiday cheer from both Alex 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.
