Join us for a romantic evening of wine and cuisine!
We're very excited to announce our next Pop Up Dinner at our UTC location, Apollonia Bistro with Chef Erin Sealy! Please join us for a special Valentine's Day dinner featuring 5 courses of wine and food. We'll be adding is some extra romance for the occasion with take-home flower arrangements at each table. Chef Erin Sealy will be preparing a 5-course menu, which will not only highlight the uniqueness of each wine, but also feature and extra dash or two of love. Expect a great night of wine, paired courses, and wonderful insights!
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! Please see below for additional dinner details and a registration link.
