About the event

Wine Pairs Events will be donating a portion of its profits from all September dinners and wine sales (wine sales at non-partner venues) to support Maui fire victims.

Please join us for our next 3-course event, featuring a fantastic selection of red blends!

Please join us for our next dinner at our North Park location! This 3-course dinner will focus on the wide variety of red blends from a variety of regions. We'll feature three different blends, one each from Washington State, Napa Valley and Paso Robles. In addition to different regions, we've ensured each blend is different and unique. During this dinner we'll discuss the general make-up of different blends and the rules (or no rules!) of how varietals can be blended together. This will be a great opportunity to taste through some wonderful wines. Each wine has received great scores and two of the wines are no longer available in the market. Don't miss this fun evening of wine, paired cuisine and conversation!

* Please note, this dinner will take place on the second floor in event space. A flight of exterior, low-rise stairs is the only way to access this event area.

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.

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 cannot 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.
