Forgotten Barrel 6-Course Harvest Wine Dinner w/Winemaker John Eppler, Owner Rodger Grove & Chef Erin Sealy @ Forgotten Barrel Winery in Escondido

 Friday, November 22nd 2019, 6:00pm

Support Your Local Winemaker!


We're very excited to announce our next winery dinner with Chef Erin Sealy at Escondido's own, Forgotten Barrel! We're planning a fantastic event featuring locally crafted wines and harvest inspired cuisine, creating the perfect fall evening. We'll be pouring six different wines from Forgotten Barrel, including a brand-new rendition of PapaDude and some other new releases! Forgotten Barrel Winemaker John Eppler and Owner Rodger Grove will be joining us for this special evening to discuss what it takes to renovate a historic winery, as well as specific discussion on each wine. The evening will start with a tray passed first course outside under the lights. The seated dinner will consist of 5-courses. Chef Erin is crafting a farm to table, harvest themed menu, incorporating pumpkin grown right at Forgotten Barrel! This will be a wonderful night of wine and food that you won't want to miss!

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 & educational insights!
