About the event

An intimate winemaker dinner featuring an exceptional line up of wines from Lodi!

We are very excited to announce our next winemaker dinner at Drift Café in Mission Beach! Please join us for a fantastic evening, featuring fantastic wines from Oak Farm Winery in Lodi! Winemaker, Marilia Nimis will be joining us for the evening to share and discuss each wine selection and the rich family history of the winery. This very special dinner will focus on small production wines and Italian varietals which excel in the Lodi area. In addition to their flagship Super Tuscan blend, Raffaele, we'll also pour a few other wines perfect for the warmer weather. 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.
