Beer and wine

Park Hyatt Aviara wins culinary creative points for its quarterly series, Masters of Food & Wine. On March 23, local brewery Port Brewing/Lost Abbey and master salumi maker Pascal Besset will present a beer and handcrafted salumi tasting. After a tour of Lost Abbey Brewery and beer tasting with Besset’s finest cured meats, a salumi-inspired lunch follows at Park Hyatt Aviara, prepared by chef Pierre Albaladejo. Next up in June is a Carlsbad Aquafarm tour with oyster and craft cocktail pairings, followed by a seafood feast at Vivace. Look for a Blackbird Vineyards Wine Dinner at the Grand Del Mar on Friday, March 29, featuring the terroir-driven, Pomerol-inspired wines from Napa Valley paired with a three-course meal by savvy chef Camron Woods from Amaya. parkaviara.hyatt.com

The doors should be open in mid-March at Solterra Winery & Kitchen in Leucadia. The spacious urban winery, replete with a tasting room, demonstration vineyard, bocce ball court, patio dining, and fire pit, is the brainchild of successful vintner Christopher Van Alyea, who makes exciting, robust reds. Live music, craft beer, and Mediterranean-influenced small plates as well. 934 North Coast Highway 101
