About the event
Don't miss an exciting evening featuring fantastic wines from HALL and WALT, as well as a Zinfandel from BACA!
For our January dinner at our coastal San Diego location, we're very excited to announce the return of HALL, WALT and BACA wines! We'll be featuring a fantastic line up of wines (completely different from our Spring 2022 dinner!) from HALL, WALT and BACA. This family of wines from founders, Kathryn Walt-Hall and Craig Hall focus on offering some of the finest selections of vineyards. While HALL focuses on Napa varietals and appellations, WALT and BACA are varietal specific, with a focus on Pinot Noir (WALT) and Zinfandel (BACA) from a variety of stellar vineyards. 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.
