About the event

An intimate wine dinner featuring an exceptional line up from Freemark Abbey, including an extra-special Cabernet!

We're very excited to announce an all-new venue for our pop-up wine dinners in North Park. Our previous location (where we had only able to hold a few dinners) was sold at the end of March. After trying out a couple of different options, we're happy to announce this upstairs space, in the heart of North Park is the perfect fit!

For our first dinner at this new location we'll be pouring an exceptional line up of wines from Freemark Abbey, including a vintage selection of single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. This historic Napa Valley winery consistently boasts top wine scores and coveted vintages. This intimate venue is limited to 32 seats, and boosts a birdseye view of 30th street. Dinner will consist of 4 paired courses plus a decadent dessert. Cory Rowin will be joining us to pour wine and share the Freemark Abbey historical story. You won't want to miss this fantastic evening of wine, food 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.

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.
