As the longer days of spring and summer approach, we begin to dream of outdoor gatherings with family, firing up the grill, and sipping our favorite wines on the patio.
Of course, with the change of seasons comes the heat. We share a reminder to order your wines now to avoid summer ‘heat holds’ and overnight shipping costs. The difference between Ground vs. Overnight shipping can mean several hundred dollars.
From our family to yours, we hope you remain safe and healthy. Certainly, the holidays will be like nothing any of us have experienced before. During shelter-in-place, we’ve found ourselves cooking as a family more than ever. This is why we share a holiday gift collection that includes each of our four wines and the new cookbook, Flavorbomb by Gastronaut and Author Bob Blumer.
Blumer is also an eight-timeGuinness World Recordholder, creator and host of the television series Surreal Gourmet and Glutton for Punishment, and a producer and host of World’s Weirdest Restaurants. If you’re like us and not dining out like you used to, then this is the cookbook for you. It’s loaded with insider tips and recipes to achieve the widely addictive flavors served up by your favorite chefs and restaurants!
Screwcaps and Food To-Go Make Life Easier While Delicious
Life moves fast for most of us, yet there are pit stops along life’s road to get slow food quickly and chill the pace. The San Francisco Bay Area has one the most reliable and delicious to-go sources for sustainable and organic meals, and it’s a diner called Gott’s Roadside.
According to Gott’s website, they offer, “California-inspired dishes and seasonal specials use locally sourced ingredients and purveyors such as Niman Ranch beef, Zoe’s bacon, Panorama Bakery breads, and Osprey Seafood.” These producers are some of the best in our nation!
Prescription Vineyards itself is all about handcrafted wines created by Rob Lloyd. They are responsibly made, affordable, and easy to sip (screwcap closure) with some of America’s best prepared meals, off the shelve bites, street food, and dishes from places like Gott’s Roadside.
From Gott’s, we particularly love pairing their Chicken-Schnitzel Sandwich with Prescription Chardonnay! This crispy fried chicken breast is topped with arugula herb salad, cucumber and pickled turnips on a toasted sesame brioche bun with harissa and turmeric spiced mayos.
Yes, we all love to cook homemade meals with our families. However, there are times when life is too crazy, and we need immediate nourishment and a good glass of wine to win the day. This reality is why we’ve decided to have an ongoing series of blogs featuring easy and delicious meals to pair with Prescription Vineyards Chardonnay.
