Don't miss an evening of Rhone Varietals from Santa Barbara!
Please join Chef Erin Sealy at her North County location, La Costa Wine Company in Carlsbad, for an evening with Deborah Ellis and wines from Fess Parker and sister winery, Epiphany! These family owned wineries and vineyards produce award winning Rhone varietals with Santa Barbara County character. Deborah Ellis will be joining us from the winery to chat about these wonderful wines, while pouring 5 different selections. Chef Erin has crafted a fantastic menu to highlight the uniqueness of each wine! Expect a wonderful evening of wine, food and Insights from Deborah and Chef Erin. 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 & educational insights! Please see below for additional dinner details and a registration link.
