Cultivar Beer at Walk in the Wild at the Oakland Zoo

On Saturday, June 23rd the Oakland Zoo held its 26th Annual “Walk in the Wild” gala fundraising event. Cultivar was thrilled to support this self-described “Epicurean Escapade” as a beer sponsor for the second year in a row. This unique event allows guests to sample cuisine from the Bay Area’s top chefs and restaurants, wineries, and microbreweries while getting an extra special peek at the animals out past their normal bedtimes. It’s all in the name of animal stewardship with funds from event supporting the zoo’s efforts in conservation, education, and animal care programs.This year also included an exclusive sneak peek for VIP ticket holders of the new California Trail exhibit before it opens to the public on July 12th.

We were located right next to the zebras and our friends from Firestone Walker Brewery. The zebras enjoyed munching on special grasses and plants strategically placed so that visitors to our booth could catch a glimpse. Before the main event the team got a chance to see tigers chewing on large meaty bones, alligators slowly floating through the water, otters frolicking, gibbons swinging from trees, and giraffes peacefully strolling through their habitat.

 

During the main event we poured our signature California IPA and our new Summer Hefe Weizen with fresh slices of lemon. It’s always fun to meet new people at events and share our story while trying new treats from other vendors. The hot pastrami sandwich prepared on site by Oakland’s Wood Tavern was definitely a highlight. It tasted great with both of our beers!

After the sun went down, and the booth was closed, we capped off the night with desserts and dancing to live music from high-energy cover band Apple Z from Sacramento. A wonderful time was had by all, and we hope to return next year!

A Special Dinner Among Friends

Almost 10 years ago to the date, Riva Cucina hosted their first winemaker dinner at Riva Cucina with our dear friends, Julien and Elan Fayard. It was a special night indeed, as the four of us were just starting our new ventures. We now have the wonderful opportunity to bring this amazing team together again for another first winemaker dinner, this time at the newly-opened Marina wine bar, Cultivar San Francisco. Massi will be guest chef, pairing his cuisine with Julien's award-winning wines.

We hope you can join us for a wonderful evening, as we celebrate the opening of Cultivar SF and the wines of Julien Fayard.

High Style Collection Opening Celebration at Legion of Honor

Fans of fashion flocked to the Legion of Honor Wednesday March 11th, 2015 for the opening celebration of High Style: The Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection.

“Dazzle” was the theme and fans turned out in glamorous fashion for the collection’s unveiling during a black-tie dinner for supporters hosted by the FAM Board President Dede Wilsey.

Cultivar was happy to support the museum donating wines to pair with the sophisticated three course menu. We paired our 2013 Cultivar Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc with the first course Celery Root, Truffle, and Leek Potage.

For the main course of Filet aux Morilles we chose our 2012 Cultivar Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The sweet tannins and refined structure of the wine pulled out the morels in the sauce and complimented the cream sauce.

Guests finished the meal with a Black and White Duo: Chocolate Pot de Crème, Vanilla Bean Pot de Crème, and Santa Cruz Strawberries.

The collection is on view at the Legion of Honor through July 19th and shouldn’t be missed. Curated by Jan Glier Reeder, consulting curator for the Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and organized by the Met, High Style captures key points in 20th-century fashion design with rare pieces from French couture houses, including examples by Jeanne Lanvin, Elsa Schiaparelli, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, and Hubert de Givenchy. Get your tickets today.
