About the event

Just in time for the end of summer, a 3-course dinner featuring non-red wines and seafood!

We are very excited to announce our next 3-course wine dinner at Drift Café in Mission Beach! Please join us for a fantastic evening, featuring an exceptional lineup of non-red wines from various regions and wineries. Oftentimes one of the, if not the consistently warmest month of the year in San Diego, we're here to help cool things for you! We'll be teaming up these wines with an all seafood influenced menu. This will be a great opportunity to try some lighter style wines, including a unique white wine. Though these varietals are often considered an aperitif or cocktail wine; each will be teamed up with a thought-provoking pairing to showcase the complexing of each wine. You won't want to miss this fun evening of wine, food and conversation!

We're happy to announce the return of 3-course dinners; offering an incredible value at a time when we're all only hearing about increasing costs. Once a month I will offer an abbreviated, 3-course dinner at either HardiHood in North Park or Drift Cafe in Pacific Beach. This equates to a full meal (appetizer, two light entrees and complimentary dessert) along with 3 paired wines, still 3oz pours of each. It is the same great concept of wine pairing with discussions on both the wine and food.

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.

Lastly, please note that your total cost for the dinner includes two processing fees that are collected by third parties and do not transfer to Wine Pairs Events.
