Cost: 5-Course Winemaker Dinner $95 (Excludes Tax & 18% Gratuity)

Join us for an evening of new and limited releases from Ernest Vineyards!

For our July dinner, we're excited to announce our first dinner with Ernest Vineyards and their fantastic wines sourced from stellar vineyards throughout the Sonoma Coast and select vineyards in Mendocino. Winemaker Joe Ryan will be joining us for the evening to pour some of these exceptional wines. Just in time for the warmer months of summer, we're excited to share a menu featuring some interesting white/rose wines and complex but lighter reds. Consistently scoring in the mid to upper 90's coupled with small lot productions, these wines are highly coveted. In addition to sharing these fantastic wines, Joe will also share the history and unique philosophy behind this small production, family run winery. You won't want to miss this fantastic 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.
