Tapas & Wine Pairing with Chef Dan Johns from Tutto Fresco

September 25, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm PDT

We are excited to announce an amazing night of amazing wine paired with fantastic food. We have partnered with Chef Dan Johns from Tutto Fresco Italian Restaurant in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA.

Join us on a culinary adventure into wine, food and flavor. Please join us for this unique experience at McClain Cellars.

We have carefully selected 7 of our wines to be paired with 7 “bite-sized” meals to enjoyed together. Each of the meals are small and designed to allow you to experience the flavors of the food paired with the dynamic characteristics of McClain Cellars wines. This is a winemaker’s dinner like no other.

This event is not something you want to miss. You will get to taste a variety of exciting wines and delicious food in addition to having the opportunity to meet Jason McClain and Chef Dan Johns.
