Don't miss a very fun evening of great wine and comparative tasting!

We're very excited to announce our next Pop Up Dinner with Chef Erin Sealy at our East Village location, Boutique Vino! Please join us for a wonderful evening of wine and comparative tasting featuring 8 wines from the Jackson Family portfolio! We'll be featuring 4 rounds of side-by-side tastings of two wines, one featuring a female winemaker, the other crafted by a male winemaker. Attendees will get to guess which wine was crafted by which winemaker, female or male. There will even be a prize for the guest who has the most correct responses! Representative Leigha Cornett will be presenting the wines and discussing each of the selections & idiosyncrasies of the different appellations and vintages.

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.
