About the event

Don't miss a fantastic line up of Sonoma County wines and seasonal pairings on Easter Sunday!

Please join us for a very special wine dinner in Shelter Island at The Wine Pub, featuring fantastic wines from Balletto Winery! This family owned and operated winery produces award-winning, classic Sonoma County varietals, sourcing from some of the best vineyards in the region. In addition to their flagship pinot noir, we'll also pour a great variety of unique white wines, perfect for the Easter holiday and warmer spring temperatures. Jen Gibson will join us for the evening to present these lovely wines and share the Balletto family story. To showcase these wines, Chef Erin has created an elevated, seasonal pairing menu with the holiday in mind. You won't want to miss this fantastic evening of wine, food and conversation!

With the cooler weather, we have moved dinners inside of the venue, which is closed on Sundays. We look forward to outdoor dinners returning in the Spring/Summer, or whenever the rain finally stops!

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.
