Limited to 45 seats
 
We’re very fortunate to have one of Santa Barbara’s star winemakers, Gavin Chanin, join us at Sansei Waikīkī. Gavin is one of the most highly acclaimed winemaking “Turks” of the “New Age.” His style of winemaking focuses on prime, single-vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir sites in small batch production. To best showcase Gavin’s incredible talent, we will sample FOUR wines from FOUR different growing areas of California paired with a contemporary Asian menu created by our
Sansei Waikīkī Executive Chef Adrian Solorzano.
