About the event

Don't miss our seasonal return to North County Wine Co., in San Marcos!

Please join us for our first event of the 2024 dinner season at North County Wine Company in San Marcos. For our May events, we are excited to share selections from Paso Robles' Cass Winery. In addition to some classic Rhone varietals, like Grenache and Mourvedre, we are also excited to share a classic style Cabernet. For this dinner we'll feature a wonderful line-up of estate wines, including a rose and white blend, perfect for the summer. For reds, we have a great selection planned, including a light, medium and bold reds. These wines, coming from a small-production, family/partner run winery will certainly over-deliver. Phil Dubourdieu will be joining us from the distributor to discuss the Paso Robles wine region, winemaking, and the rich history at Cass. You won't want to miss this memorable evening of wine, food and conversation from both Phil and Chef Erin!

Please note, this will be an outdoor event, a light sweater or jacket is recommended.

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.
