About the event

Don't miss an exciting evening featuring bold wines from Lodi, including the single vineyard zinfandel, Gluttony!

We are very excited to announce our latest wine dinner installment at our central San Diego location, in Mission Hills! This evening will feature some fantastic wines from Lodi based favorite, Michael David Winery. John Mangiaracina will join us for the evening to present the wines and tell the Michael David story. This dinner will feature 5 wine selections, each paired with a dinner course. Michael David has accumulated years of awards and praise while still providing excellent wines at an affordable price. Most notably, Michael David was awarded American Winery of the Year (2020) by Wine Enthusiast! We'll be featuring a wonderful selection of wines, including one of their luxury zinfandels, Gluttony! Each selection will showcase Michael David's excellence and dedication to the winemaking process. Expect a wonderful evening of wine, food and insights from John & Erin. Seating for this event is limited, please register asap, using the link below.

This event will be held indoors, there is immense open area space and plenty of tables. There will be no group seating available, unless a prior request is made, so please be sure to note if anyone will be joining your party, under a different reservation, in the special requests section. Seating for this event is limited, please register asap, using the link below.

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! Please see below for additional dinner details and a registration link.
