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 thoughtful cuisine, creating the perfect Valentine's date night. We'll be pouring six different wines from Forgotten Barrel during an evening of fabulous food, wonderful wine, interesting insights and a little romance. 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 (weather permitting). The seated dinner will consist of 5-courses, featuring a lot of new releases and a couple of core wines that have put Forgotten Barrel on the map. 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! Please see below for additional dinner details and a registration link.
Forgotten Barrel offers a wide selection of premium hand crafted wines using fruit sourced from Napa, Sonoma, Central Coast and San Diego County.
The reincarnation of the former Ferrara Winery has transformed this once-forgotten homestead into a tranquil rustic hideaway in the city. Our winemaker, John Eppler, hails from Northern California, having worked in Napa for Robert Mondavi, Rosenblum Cellars, and his own brand, John Robert Eppler Wines. Visitors are sure to enjoy a friendly and relaxed wine tasting that will long be savored.
