This event will be held indoors, there is immense open area space and plenty of tables. There will be no group seating available, unless a prior request is made, so please be sure to note if anyone will be joining your party, under a different reservation, in the special requests section. Seating for this event is 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 and educational insights! Please see below for additional dinner details and a registration link.
