The Plant Paradox Wine Dinner

Join us for a special evening with Dr. Steven Gundry in support of Lotusland at El Encanto, a Belmond Hotel. Enjoy a multi-course dinner featuring locally-sourced seasonal dishes and natural and biodynamic wine pairings inspired by Dr. Steven Gundry and created by El Encanto Executive Chef Alexander Bollinger. Listen as they guide you through each dish for an unforgettable culinary experience set amid lush hills overlooking the Pacific, El Encanto is among the most iconic Santa Barbara resorts.

Dr. Steven Gundry’s philosophy centers around the fact that the human digestive system is a very complex and very sensitive machine. It needs key energy sources that you’re not getting in your diet… and at the same time, it’s damaged by a huge number of foods that are a big part of our “Standard American Diet.”

This private group experience is designed for 20 Adults.
$1,000 per person. All proceeds benefit the Garden.
Contact Samantha Lloyd-Knauf to reserve your space.
