About the event

Don't miss an exciting evening featuring wines from French Winemaker Guillaume Large!

We are very excited to announce our next winemaker dinner! We'll feature one, special engagement evening with Winemaker, Guillaume Large at our Mission/Pacific Beach location, Drift Cafe! For our August dinner at this location we're thrilled to announce a fantastic line up of 5 wines from famed Burgundy winery, Luis Jadot and Willamette Valley sister property, Resonance. Winemaker Guillaume Large will join us for this very special event to discuss the nuances and terroirs of both grape growing regions. After growing up in Burgundy and working his family's generational vineyard, Guillaume gained an immense amount of knowledge as a young man. He went on to work in Burgundy, France with Luis Jadot, in 2011 then later, taking the helm of Jadot's Willamette Valley project, Resonance. 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.
