Local Event Premier Host
Cost: 5-Course Winemaker Dinner $95/person (excludes tax & 18% gratuity)
Join us for an evening of new and limited releases from Caliza and End of the Day Wineries!
For our August dinner, we're excited to announce our first dinner with Caliza and End of the Day wines! Winemaker and Owner, Carl Bowker will be joining us for the evening to share and discuss each wine selection and the rich history of his journey to create the winery. This very special dinner will focus on small production wines and Rhone varietals which excel in the Paso Robles area. In addition to his flagship GSM blend, Azimuth, we'll also pour 4 other notable, high-scoring wines from Carl. You won't want to miss this memorable evening of wine, food and conversation!
**Please note: As of April all wine dinners will be held inside. This will be a permanent change as the patio is no longer available to La Costa Wine Co.
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 and educational insights! Seating is limited. Please see below for additional dinner details and a registration link.
