An intimate wine dinner featuring an exceptional line up from Freemark Abbey, including an extra-special Cabernet!
We're very excited to announce our next event in Orange County! We'll be pouring an exceptional line up of wines from Freemark Abbey, including a vintage selection of single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. This historic Napa Valley winery consistently boasts top wine scores and coveted vintages. Dinner will consist of 5 paired courses plus a complimentary dessert. Cory Rowin will be joining us to pour wine and share the Freemark Abbey historical story. You won't want to miss this fantastic evening of wine, food and conversation.
* Please note, this dinner will take place on the second floor in loft space. A flight of low-rise stairs is the only way to access the seated dinner area.
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.
