About the event
Don't miss an exciting evening featuring fantastic Paso Robles wines!
We are very excited to announce our next dinner series! We'll feature two evenings in a row, including an evening at our Mission/Pacific Beach location, Drift Cafe! For our April series, we're very excited to announce a fantastic line up of wines from Le Vigne Vineyards in Paso Robles! Winemaker Terry Culton is a top winemaker in Paso Robles with an extensive and impressive resume. He has worked with several well-known wineries throughout coastal California and Oregon including Peachy Canyon Winery, Adelaida Cellars, Calera Wine Company and Willamette Valley Vineyards. He was also named a “Top-Flight Winemaker” by Robert Parker of The Wine Advocate. These boutique, estate wines will make for exceptional evening. Craig Miller will be joining us from the winery for both dinners to discuss each wine selection and the rich history of the winery and region. This will be a great opportunity to try out 5 different wines and from a Paso Robles hidden gem. To showcase these wines, Chef Erin has created an elevated, seasonal pairing menu. You won't want to miss this memorable evening of wine, food and conversation!
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.
