About the event

Don't miss an exciting evening featuring fantastic small-production wines!

We are very excited to announce our next dinner at our second Orange County location, where we'll be featuring fantastic wines from iconic winery, Duckhorn! For our July dinner we are looking forward to sharing some exceptional wines with you. Over the years, the Duckhorn family of wines has grown to include additional projects from different wine regions. For this dinner we'll focus on some of their selections from Napa and Sonoma, including the very special Duckhorn Howell Mountain Cabernet. Louis Trenta will be joining us from the winery to share and discuss each wine selection and the rich history of the family, winery and regions. 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.
