Melville Winery 5-Course Winemaker Dinner w/Chard Melville & Chef Erin Sealy @ La Costa Wine Co.

Wednesday, March 11th 2020, 7:00pm

Don't miss an exciting evening with Winemaker Chad Melville!


Please join Chef Erin Sealy at her North County Coastal location, La Costa Wine Company in Carlsbad, for a wonderful evening of acclaimed wines from Melville Winery. We'll be featuring some fantastic wines that you won't want to miss! Winemaker Chad Melville will be joining us from the winery for the evening to chat about these wonderful wines and the rich history behind them. Family owned for 3 decades; Melville was one of the first wineries to farm the renown Santa Rita Hills AVA. Chef Erin will be crafting an exciting menu, each course paired with its accompanying wine. Expect a wonderful evening of wine, food and insights from Kristy & Erin. 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 & educational insights! Please see below for additional dinner details and a registration link.
