A (Modified) Return of Wine Dinners!

Aaron Wines 4-Course Dinner with Chef Erin Sealy @ La Costa Wine Co in Carlsbad

Sunday, October 18th, 2020 6pm

We're excited to welcome you back to our wine dinner program!

After 7 very long months of closure due to COVID-19, we're ecstatic to announce our return to wine pairing dinners! As it is not yet feasible to go back to our original format, we're hopeful that this new, modified experience, will be well-received. After a very lengthy construction, La Costa Wine Co. now has a new, functional parking lot and lovely patio! We're hoping to take advantage of our fall weather, where hot days turn to balmy nights, perfect for outdoor, evening events. Seating for this event is limited, please register asap, using the link below.

For our first dinner back, we're excited to share with you, Aaron Winery. We were supposed to feature this winery way back in May, so we're excited to still have the chance to present these wines. We're hoping to have someone from the winery present, and will announce that here, if it comes to fruition. Aaron is a small Paso Robles winery, with a focus on petite sirah. This dinner will feature cuvees that incorporate petite sirah and other Paso Robles varietals.

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 selection is tasted and reviewed and then she creates a food pairing, highlighting the nuances of each selection. 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, wine and spirits, 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!
