About the event

Please join us for an evening of exceptional Sonoma wines at our newest location!

For our first dinner at our new Carlsbad Village location, Napatini, we are excited to share selections for Sonoma's Chalk Hill Winery. In addition to some classic Sonoma varietals, like chardonnay and pinot noir, we are excited to share two distinctly different red blends. For this dinner we'll feature a combination of wines sourced throughout Sonoma, as well as a few estate grown selections. Chalk Hill is known for its chalky terroir and soil composition, a highly sought after aspect of grape growing. This type of soil creates wines with great minerality and balance. Tabitha Arizini will be joining us from the winery to discuss the Sonoma wine region, winemaking, and the rich history of Chalk Hill. You won't want to miss this memorable evening of wine, food and conversation from both Tabitha and Chef Erin!

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.

Though we cannot guarantee special requests for menu changes, please contact us (email/phone above) if you have any food allergies or special considerations and we'll do our best to accommodate! Please understand that this is pop-up experience, it IS NOT a restaurant. A temporary kitchen is built to accommodate the dinner and resources are very limited. Minor changes can usually be accommodated. Diary Free and Vegan requests CAN NOT be met, though reduced dairy and vegetarian typically can be met. Menu changes should be requested at least 48 hours prior to an event. Please DO NOT buy tickets with the assumption that any special request will be met, please check with us first. Please note that if you purchase tickets before inquiring about your modification, and it cannot be accommodated, the below cancellation policy still applies.

There is a 48-hour full-refund policy. We apologize that cancellations within 48 hours of the event cannot be refunded.

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. Instead of passing on these additional fees to customers, we have decided to absorb them. This however means that when a customer cancels a reservation, at any point, 6% of the ticket total is non-refundable, as these processors do not issue refunds for any reason.
