About the event
An intimate wine dinner featuring an exceptional line up from Thacher Winery, with dynamic winemaker, Sherman Thacher!
We're very excited to announce a very special dinner at one of our newest locations, Drift Cafe in Mission Beach. For our May dinner at this venue we will feature a fantastic line up of wines from Thacher Winery! Winemaker and owner Sherman Thacher, will be joining us for the evening to share these exceptional selections from Thacher Winery, including the limited production Cinsault! This family run Paso Robles winery pushes the bar in winemaking, working with obscure varietals and unique vineyards. With an abundance of different varietals and blends, Thacher has something for everyone. For this dinner we'll feature a combination of unique and staple varietals that excel in the Central Coast and Paso Robles viticulture regions. This is great opportunity to try some unique varietals and blends, firsthand from Sherman. You won't want to miss this fantastic 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.
