El Rincon Criollo & Gourmet Wine Getaways

Proudly present



Featuring the wines of

Area 5.1 Winery
Santa Barbara County, California

Special Guest: Owner Martin Brown

Monday, June 10, 2019 at 7:00 PM
$65 per person, plus tax and gratuity

Area 5.1 Winery is the brainchild of owner Martin Brown (no doubt there was some alien influence!) Those of you who are Sci-Fi and UFO buffs are no doubt familiar with Area 51 in Nevada. Well, Martin and his 3 consulting winemakers (including his beloved brother Michael of Buttonwood and Kalyra winery fame) decided it was time to “throw away” the old wine blending book and make some creative blends that break most if not all the rules. The result is nothing short of unique and borders on the fantastic!
Tonight, we will continue the theme of stretching the rules by the pairing wonderful Cuban and Spanish cuisine of El Rincon Crillo with 4 “out of this world” wines from our featured winery. These wines are all food-friendly and begging to be part of your home wine collection. So, if you are intrigued or just plain curious, join us for what is sure to be a night of “firsts” as we enjoy our premier wine dinner at this long time, slightly hidden gem in Culver City. Owner Martin Brown will be on hand to amaze and amuse you-perhaps he’ll even invite you to the next Area 5.1 blending session! Grab some friends and make it a great evening of wine, food and conversation
