Join us for an evening of wines from Santa Ynez Valley!
Please join Chef Erin Sealy at her Orange County pop-up dinner location, Salt Creek Wine Co. in Laguna Niguel, for an unforgettable evening. We'll be featuring 4 fantastic wines from Santa Ynez Valley winery and vineyard, Gainey! To round out the evening we'll be kicking off the dinner with a French Cremant pairing. These exceptional wines will impress you with their finesse and quality, while over-delivering for the price. Marcelino Cosio will be joining us from the distributor to present these exceptional wines, while imparting some interesting knowledge on the wine region and winery's history. Chef Erin will discuss the pairing concept of each course, which will highlight the nuances of each wine.
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 & educational insights!
