Friday Night Favorites by Cait of Pretty & Fun
"Friday nights are officially my favorite part of the week, but for very different reasons than life in my early twenties. Gone are the days of bar hopping after work or shaking off the workweek with a few too many drinks – you see, Friday nights are now my favorite because they’re my one night to do nothing.
My quiet Friday evenings have become the perfect way to unwind from work and soak in some quiet time before the hustle of the weekend kicks in. In celebration of my favorite part of the week rolling around once again, I wanted to share a peek into my Friday night favorites (aka what you’re likely to find me doing after work tonight!)"
"Workweek Wine-d Down: I swear, wine tastes its absolute best on Friday night! There’s nothing better than opening up a bottle of your favorite wine to enjoy a glass while you relax. I’m obsessed with Cultivar’s Cabernet Franc – it’s a really great full bodied red that has just the right blend of sweet and spicy."
"Read Something Besides Email: I stopped for a second earlier this week and realized Monday-Friday, my life basically revolves around my email inbox. Between work and the blog it’s non-stop which also means that I’m unlikely to read much besides what’s flowing through my inbox throughout the week – depressing! I like to play catch up on life outside of the email world on Friday nights – whether it’s finally flipping through my neglected pile of magazines, starting a new book on my Kindle or taking a trip down memory lane amongst my beloved book collection, it always feels so good to take some time to disconnect."

We are thrilled to share a recent donation Cultivar Wine made to The Friends of James Beard Foundation Dinner held March 14th, 2016 at San Francisco's Lazy Bear Restaurant. This was an extremely intimate Fundraiser held benefiting the James Beard Foundation. Throughout the evening guests enjoyed various wine pairings with each course. See more of the fun and incredible food the various Chefs created at this amazing event.
Thanks again to the Golden Gate Restaurant Association and Lazy Bear Restaurant for organizing the event and including Cultivar Wine as a supporter. We are so happy to see it was a huge success and the guests loved the incredible food and wine pairings.
