About the event

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

Please join us for our final event of the 2023 dinner season at North County Wine Company in San Marcos. For our October dinner, we'll feature fantastic wines from the DAOU Family, including flagship wine, Soul of a Lion! We'll feature a great selection of fall-ready wines from this family owned and operated Paso Robles winery. Eryn Schnitzler will join us from the winery to present the line-up and share the DAOU story. The evening will feature 5 wine selections, each a great example of the exceptional wines coming from Paso Robles. 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 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.
