About the event

Don't miss an exciting four-evening dinner series, featuring Tercero Winery and Winemaker/Owner Larry Schaffer!

We are very excited to announce our next wine dinner series, featuring four evenings of wines from Tercero Winery! This series will include an evening at our Pacific Beach location, Drift Cafe! For our second April series, we are thrilled to announce a fantastic line-up of small production wines which will be presented by owner/winemaker, Larry Schaffer. With a focus on Santa Barbara County vineyards, Larry seeks out lesser-known varietals and exceptional vineyards to craft beautiful wines. We are excited to share this unique offering of wines and the stories behind each of them. Chef Erin has crafted a seasonal spring menu to highlight the complexity of these well-crafted wines. For details on all the other dinners as part of this series, please visit our events page: HERE

* 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.
