Pinot Provence is a fine dining French Restaurant that can be found inside of the Westin hotel, located in the city of Costa Mesa, California which is across the street from the South Coast Plaza Mall. Pinot Provence is a restaurant within the Patina Group which has over fifty restaurants across the United States. I love Pinot Provence and even recently did a write up
about a French Wine Dinner I attended there. See my review here —> PINOT PROVENCE FRENCH WINE PAIRING DINNER. If you missed the wine dinner mentioned above, you are in luck because Pinot Provence will now once again be having more wine dinners available for you to attend! This set of dinners will be called the Sommelier Fireside Dinners.
There will be 2 dinners coming up in the Sommelier Fireside Dinner series to salute fall and seasonal red wines! These dinners are set in an intimate setting to allow both novices of wine, as well as aficionados an opportunity to be educated about a variety of wines from several different world regions, including Italy, California, France, Australia, and more!
The two upcoming dinners will be held on October 23rd and November 20th and they will each have different themes. The first dinner on Wednesday, October 23rd will be called, “The Great Wines of France” and the second dinner on Wednesday, November 20th will be called, “Cabernet Sauvignon from Around the World.” Both dinners will be run by Certified
Sommelier Jörn Kleinhans, founder of Wine Elite, California’s largest high-end wine appreciation forum! You will have the opportunity to enjoy an educational evening featuring a five-course menu, specifically crafted to match wine and food culture.
Cost will be $70/person, $110 with wine.
The restaurant location is:
The Westin South Coast Plaza
686 Anton Blvd.
