Celebrate Mother’s Day in Wine Country!

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

TheMothers Day 2 ancient Greeks paid annual homage to Cybele, the mother figure of their gods, the Romans dedicated an annual spring festival to the mother of their gods, and in 16th century England, a celebration called “Mothering Sunday” was inaugurated — a Sunday set aside for visiting one’s mother.  When President Woodrow Wilson signed a bill back in 1914 designating the second Sunday in May as a legal holiday to be called “Mother’s Day”, he dedicated the day “to the best mother in the world, your mother.”

Show your Mom how special she is!  Lunch, brunch, dinner – or just a day of wine tasting – is surely one way to get on her good side.  And remember, you’re the reason she drinks wine in the first place…

Here’s just a few ideas for spending Mother’s Day in Temecula Valley Wine Country:

If brunch suits your fancy, you’ve got lots of options!  Try Carol’s at Baily Winery; 11a-3p, Bel Vino Winery; 9a-3p, Danza del Sol Winery; 10a or 1p, Doffo Winery; 10a or 12:30p, Frangipani Winery; 11a-3p, Monte de Oro Winery; 10a or 12:30p, South Coast Winery Resort & Spa; 10a – 3p, Thornton Winery; 11a-4p, Wiens Family Cellars; 11a-1p, Wilson Creek Winery; 10a-3p.

Lunch and Dinner will both be served at Meritage Restaurant at Callaway Vineyard & Winery from 10a-8p.

And if you’ve always wanted to Learn To Paint, Oak Mountain Winery is offering a fun alternative to the usual at 1p.

All of our wineries will be open and ready to see you.  Happy Mothers Day, all!

Wine Country Recipe ~ Wild Mushroom Soup with Parmesan Croutons

Monday, December 15th, 2014

Wild Mushroom Soup

There’s nothing better than a hot bowl of soup on a chilly winter evening.  This hearty, earthy, woodsy, robust soup is a meal in itself.  Serve with your favorite Temecula Valley wine.

Ingredients:

For the soup:

3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 shallots, peeled and finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
3 cups thinly sliced crimini mushrooms
1 cup thinly sliced trumpet mushrooms (caps and stems)
1 cup bite-sized pieces of chanterelle, porcini or oyster mushrooms
1 cup thinly sliced shitake mushrooms (caps only)
4 cups beef stock
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons flour, mixed with 2 tablespoons water
salt and ground black pepper

For the croutons:

4 cups bite-sized cubes of rustic bread
1/4 cup  finely grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

For the soup:
Heat the butter and olive oil in a large pot, over medium-high heat, until the butter begins to sizzle.  Add the shallots and garlic.  Cook for 1 minute until the garlic is slightly browned.  Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes or until tender.  Add the beef stock and bring to a simmer.  Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add the cream and bring to a simmer again.  Stir in the flour mixture and simmer for 3 more minutes.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Serve the soup hot, topped with croutons.

For the croutons:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Put the bread, Parmesan and thyme in a large bowl.  Drizzle with olive oil and toss until combined.  Spread on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for ten minutes.

Serves 4 to 6

Suggested Pairings:

Bel Vino Winery ~ 2010 Merlot – Medium to dark color presents aromas of cloves, cassis, with dark and jammy fruits.

Longshadow Ranch Winery ~ Merlot (unfiltered) – An extraordinary red the way it was meant to be.  Gorgeous and full of life with a fruit forward finish.

Mount Palomar Winery ~ 2011 Merlot – Scents of daisy, cocoa, cherry and prominent tastes of plum and black pepper.

Oak Mountain Winery ~ 2011 Merlot – Soft nose, with flavors of raspberry, blackberry, and plum with abundant smoky oak.
