Growing up we would celebrate holidays at our grandparents house in the Napa Valley with all of our cousins.
We would help our grandparents with all sorts of projects; starting with watering the garden. There was a very specific method we were taught and all these years later, I have heard my mother and my uncles explaining it to my son and his cousins the exact same way. It always makes me smile.
For Mother’s Day we would make a point to stop at a special little place in North Beach to bring Vee the ravioli and cannelloni she loved. Once at our house we would help Vee in the garden, clipping fresh herbs, then we’d follow her to the kitchen, she would let us make the vinaigrette and toss the salad. Even though we would try to wait on her; she still would not sit down for long, even on Mother’s Day. Father’s Day was similar except that our grandfather, Caspar, “Pops” to us would wear a “King For A Day” button. At lunch he would do fun and quick magic tricks for us or tell us stories of growing up!
In honor of them we bring you some ideas for celebrating and gifts!
Have a fun and relaxing Mother’s Day at Cultivar San Francisco. Mom will sip on her favorite wine while the children order off the kids menu. We serve lunch and sharable plates starting at 12 noon. All Moms joining us for lunch or dinner will receive a gift of Tuscan Olive Oil. Cultivar Wine Club members can make reservations.
Need a gift for your Mother? You will be her favorite when you give her a bottle of Cultivar wine or choose from our wine wall of champagnes and wines to go.
Or an online Gift Certificate from Cultivar and let her choose what she would like! Gift Certificate can be used toward wine purchases on line or at Cultivar San Francisco, an intimate restaurant & wine bar spotlighting locally-sourced seasonal cuisine that pairs perfectly with our hand-selected wine list inspiried by the bounty of Napa Valley. Celebrate Mother’s Day or Father’s Day together and eat lunch or dinner at Cultivar SF or book a tasting experience and sip through our Cultivar Appellation wines and learn about the regions of the Napa Valley.
Father’s Day ideas…a year subscription to our Cultivar Wine Club or a mixed case of wine or a Caspar Estate Cabernet Franc Honey & Olive Oil Gift Box.
Or make a statement with a large format bottle, like this 2012 Howell Mountain.
