About the event
Don't miss an exciting two evening dinner series, featuring iconic wines from Grgich Hills!
We are very excited to announce our next wine dinner series, featuring two evenings with Grgich Hills! This series will include the first dinner at our newest location in Oceanside Harbor, Stratford Court at the Harbor! We have a wonderful event planned, featuring some fantastic wines from this iconic, Napa-based, family-owned, winery. The evening will feature 5 wine selections, each paired with a dinner course. We will feature many of their flagship wines, including chardonnay, cabernet, merlot and zinfandel. Allie DeKock will be joining for both evenings to present wine selections and share the rich history behind Grgich Hills and the family, including the legacy of Mike Grgich, winery patriarch, who celebrated his 100th birthday last April 1st and recently passed away after a lifetime of pioneering Napa Valley wine. 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! For details on all the other dinner as part of this series, please visit our events page: HERE
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.
