Something Special in Alpine
Something very special is happening in the hills of Alpine, California, just east of San Diego. A culmination of like-minded people have decided that in life, what is beautiful encompasses great conversation, good company and exquisite flavors. El Campito Farms has developed a culinary series that is sure to blow their cover as one of San Diego county’s Best Kept Secrets. The El Campito Love series has partnered with chefs and wine makers to bring intimate famly-style dinners with pairings of regional wines and the highest quality, farm to table (literally) creations by renowned chefs, all amidst the working farm.
On Saturday, March 29th, from 3pm – 6pm, you are invited to join the camaraderie that lovers of good food and wine share at the first in the El Campito Love series. Dinner will be served family-style alfresco on the farm. Famed Chef Javier Plascencia (Mision 19, Finca Altozano, Caesar’s), beloved Chef Flor Franco (Encuentro Guadalupe, Indulge Contemporary Catering) and Iberico Taste will intrigue palates while guests sip on local regional wines from Baja’s wine country, Valle de Guadalupe.
