Paradise Pantry presents a Wine and Food Pairing
We created the Winemaker Dinners because we LOVE to PAIR — wine, cheese, food, people.
These dinners come with stories. The story of each wine, the story of how we decided to create a dinner to go with it, the story of the evening and all the experiences of inviting our customers, creating the menu and cooking the dinners, listening to the winemakers and drinking it all in while relishing tastes that delight and surprise us.
These are dinners to nourish and care for you while experiencing a new level of delicious. We do these dinners because we adore our customers and want to share with them all we’ve tasted.

tablas creek vineyard
April 11, 2018
Usually it all begins with the wine. But this time the lamb led the way to The Tablas Creek Vineyard Winemaker Dinner here at Paradise Pantry.
Winemaker dinners give Paradise Pantry the opportunity to show and share amazing wineries. And they allow Chef Kelly to create special recipes that celebrate the seasons, buy delicious products from our growers and showcase all that’s local, fresh, and organic — all to delight our customers.
Tablas Creek Vineyard is a long-time friend and collaborator with Paradise Pantry. As Kelly recalls, their dear friend, Darren Delmore, Tablas’ national sales manager, was once again “tasting” them through a great line up of current vintages when he happened to mention the biodynamic lamb program available from Tablas creek. This lamb ranching-program is one of only 2 in the nation. Listening to the story of Nathan Stuart, the Shepherd for Tablas, Kelly knew she wanted to share this incredible story, along with the Tablas wine and their lamb, with the Paradise Pantry world.
