About the event
Don't miss an exciting evening featuring exceptional California wines in our newest pop-up space!
After 8 years of pop-up dinners in South Orange County, we are thrilled to announce a second Orange County location in Newport Beach! For our first dinner in this new space, we're planning an intimate, special dinner showcasing 5 wines from 5 distinctly different California appellations, including Clarksburg, Santa Barbara, Napa Valley, Lake County and Paso Robles. This will be a great way to celebrate Valentine's Day a bit early, as well as a fun wine learning experience. 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.
