About the event
An intimate wine dinner featuring an exceptional line up from HALL, WALT and BACA; the perfect evening out.
We're very excited to announce a very special dinner at one of our newest locations, Drift Cafe in Mission Beach. For our third dinner at this venue we'll be pouring an exceptional line up of wines from HALL, WALT and BACA, including the flagship Kathryn Cabernet Sauvignon. This family owned and run Napa Valley winery consistently boasts top wine scores and coveted vintages. This family of wines from founders, Kathryn Walt-Hall and Craig Hall focus on offering some of the finest selections of varietals from their respective terroirs; Chard/Pinot (WALT), Cabernet (HALL) and Zinfandel (BACA). Erin Hamada will be joining us from the winery to pour wine and share the HALL/WALT family story. You won't want to miss this fantastic evening of wine, food and conversation. Discover more on these wines by visiting their websites: HALL Wines, WALT Wines, and BACA Wines.
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.

Though we cannot guarantee special requests for menu changes, please contact us (email/phone above) if you have any food allergies or special considerations and we'll do our best to accommodate! Please understand that this is pop-up experience, it is not a restaurant. A temporary kitchen is built to accommodate the dinner and resources are very limited. Minor changes can usually be accommodated. Diary Free and Vegan requests can not be met, though reduced dairy and vegetarian typically can be met. Please DO NOT buy tickets with the assumption that any special request will be met, please check with us first.
There is a 48-hour full-refund policy. We apologize that cancellations within 48 hours of the event cannot be refunded.
Lastly, please note that your total cost for the dinner includes two processing fees that are collected by third parties and do not transfer to Wine Pairs Events. Instead of passing on these additional fees to customers, we have decided to absorb them. This however means that when a customer cancels a reservation, at any point, 5% of the ticket total is non-refundable, as these processors do not issue refunds for any reason.
