Don't miss an exciting evening featuring exceptional Paso Robles wines!

For our February dinner at our South Orange County location, we're very excited to announce a fantastic line up of wines from San Simeon Winery! Crowned American Winery of the Year in 2018, The Riboli Family has continued their winemaking excellence in these current vintages. Almost more impressive is that these 90+ point rated wines are incredibly affordable. Brian Reardon will be joining us from the distributor for the evening to discuss each wine selection and the rich history of the winery and region. This will be a great opportunity to try out 5 different varietals and from a world-class winemaking team. To showcase these wines, Chef Erin has created an elevated, seasonal pairing menu. You won't want to miss this memorable 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. Please see below for additional dinner details and a registration link.
