Winery Spotlight: Get to Know… Baily Vineyard & Winery

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

The Story

Baily Vineyard & Winery was established in 1986 by Phil and Carol Baily with the goal of producing excellent wine from their own grapes to be sold primarily out of the winery. Specializing in Bordeaux varietals, Phil and Carol handle all aspects of the winery, from vineyard maintenance to customized blending to creating the delicious menu at their popular restaurant.

The Wines

The Bailys have been making wine in Temecula Valley for 26 years. They are proud to be an estate-bottled winery, which means that all the grapes are grown in the same vineyard and made by the same winemaker – Phil himself! Baily wines offer a depth and consistency that appeal to the advanced wine enthusiast. A trip to the tasting room gives visitors a chance to try all their favorite varietals – from Chardonnay and Riesling to Cabernet and Merlot; plus some fantastic blends! Meritage is their flagship blend and features Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec. Fans of white blends should be sure to taste the Montage.

Wine Country Recipe: Scallops and Risotto from South Coast Winery

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Butter Poached Scallops with Aged Gouda Risotto

Courtesy of The Vineyard Rose Restaurant

 

Scallops:

Scallops – as many as you desire

¾ lb butter

1 cup Viognier wine

½ bun of parsley

salt & pepper to taste

To make:

  1. Season scallops with salt and pepper in a hot skillet, about 2 minutes each side
  2. Put a roasting pan on the stove on low heat.  Add butter, wine and parsley.
  3. Wait for the butter to melt, add the scallops.  The heat should be real low, and the liquid should not be boiling but just under a simmer.
  4. Let soak for about 10 minutes

 

Risotto:

1 cup Arborio rice

2 ½ cup chicken broth

2 shallots

1 cup shredded Aged Gouda

1 tab of butter

½ bun of parsley, chopped

 To make:

  1. Chop shallots and sauté in large skillet with butter; cook shallots till they are nice and dark
  2. Add rice, stir and cook for about 1 minute; add half of the broth and reduce heat.
  3. Stir occasional, making sure the rice does not stick.  When all the stock is just about absorbed, add a little more stock and stir.  Repeat and continue till all the stock is used.  Cook till all the broth is just about absorbed, the rice should appear to be creamy and should be nice and tender.
  4. Turn off heat and stir in parsley and cheese.  Season to taste.

 

Assembly:

  1. Spoon a little risotto on to a plate.
  2. Place a couple of scallops per plate, and spoon just a touch of the butter over the top of the scallops.  Enjoy!

 

Pair it with Carter Estates Viognier a delightful summer wine!
