About the event

An intimate wine dinner featuring an exceptional line up from acclaimed Paso Robles Winery, DAOU!

We're very excited to announce our seasonal return to North County Wine Company in San Marcos! For our September dinner, we're thrilled to welcome back DAOU Vineyards and presenter, Roman Palumbo. We have a wonderful evening planned featuring some fantastic wines from Paso Robles based favorite, DAOU. This dinner will feature 5 wine selections, each paired with a dinner course. DAOU has accumulated years of awards and praise while forging their own path in the higher elevations of Paso Robles. We'll be featuring a wonderful selection of wines, none of which are available at the winery. Each selection will showcase DAOU's excellence and dedication to the winemaking process. You won't want to miss this fantastic 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.
