DAOU 5-Course Wine Dinner ft. Soul of a Lion w/Roman Palumbo & Chef Erin Sealy @ La Costa Wine Co.

Sunday, November 7th 2021, 6:o0pm

Don't miss an exciting evening featuring fantastic wines from Paso Robles' DAOU Family Vineyards!


After a very lengthy construction, La Costa Wine Co. now has a new, functional parking lot and lovely patio! We'll be taking advantage of our warm fall weather, by hosting this dinner outside on the patio. The patio does have multiple heaters and is sheltered from western breezes. *Please note, in the event of rain, this dinner will be moved indoors. 

10/28/2021: Please note, due to the high demand for this event we are now sold out for outdoor/patio seating. We will be offering 20 additional seats inside the venue. All guests will receive the same menu, wine and experience, regardless of where they are seated. 

For our November dinner, we're excited to announce we'll be featuring wines from crowd favorite, DAOU! We'll be featuring two brand-new, just released wines, in addition to the current release of flagship wine, Soul of a Lion. Roman Palumbo will be joining us from the winery to present these exceptional wines. We have a great line up of wine planned, including some great wines for the upcoming holidays. This dinner will feature 5 wine selections, each paired with a dinner course. You won't want to miss this fantastic evening of wine, food and fun! 

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.
