About the event

Don't miss our next Wine Dinner Series with a fantastic mix of wines from iconic, family-operated winery, Dry Creek Vineyard!

We are very excited to announce our next wine dinner series! We'll feature two evenings, including an evening at our South Orange County location, Perspektive Studio in San Juan Capistrano. For our December dinner series, we're thrilled to announce a fantastic line up of 5 small production wines from Sonoma's Dry Creek Vineyard. Joe Czesnakowicz, will be joining us for the evening from the winery to share these family produced wines. This very special dinner will feature a great selection of wines, including two with a special bottling, in celebration of their 50th anniversary. This will be a great chance to sample some of the flagship wines Dry Creek Vineyard produces, as well as some of the smaller production stars of the winery. As a special treat, we will also be pouring the highly allocated, 2019 Endeavor Cabernet. 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!

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