Don't miss an evening of exceptional family wines from Nelle & Cordant Wineries!


Please join Chef Erin Sealy at her North County location, La Costa Wine Company in Carlsbad, for an evening featuring wines from Nelle and Cordant Wineries! Guided by winemaker, Tyler Russell, Cordant focuses on single vineyard Pinot Noir and Nelle focuses on Rhone varietals. Both wineries will give attendees a great sense of the fantastic wines coming out of the Central Coast. Winemaker Tyler Russell will be joining us for the evening to present these exceptional wines and the wineries' rich background. As a special treat we'll be featuring a Walla Walla Syrah that was a one-time-only production for Tyler! Expect a wonderful evening of wine, food and insights from Tyler. Seating for this event is extremely 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.
