Don't miss an exciting evening featuring a fantastic variety of Italian wines!
We are very excited to announce our next dinner at our second Orange County location, where we'll be featuring a fantastic variety of Italian wines! For our September dinner, we're excited to announce a fantastic line up of 5 wines from Italian producer, San Felice. In addition to classic Italian varietals like Chianti, we will also be pouring a special 50th Anniversary Super Tuscan and a 2017 Brunello! Brian Reardon will be joining us for the evening from the distributor to share these wines and San Felice's rich history. Chef Erin will prepare an elevated, seasonal pairing menu with an Italian theme. 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.
