Allison Caccoma, Maja Smith of Found by Maya and DeGournay stores on Sacramento Street teamed up with India Hicks stylists Carter Graber and Robyn Packouz and Cultivar Wine.
We poured our Cultivar Sauvignon Blanc and our 2017 Cultivar Rosé at the party while people shopped and India Hicks spoke and signed her new book all for #100days100K.
Everyone loved India's new book, A Slice of England. She delighted all with her stories. We are looking forward to her next visit!
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.
Also ever popular Caspar Estate Olive Oil & Honey Gift Box or the Caspar Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Olive Oil & Honey Gift Box, or a case of our newly released 2017 Cultivar Rosé!
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.
Making your life simple! Our team is ready to help you with your Spring and Summer gifting needs from Mother's Day to Father's Day to the hostess gifts you want to have ready to go!

Spring Wines for your sipping pleasure...
As it turns warmer here in the Napa Valley we are enjoying these small lot production wines. The Leaky Lake Cabernet Sauvignon calls for a bison burger or thinly sliced flank steak cut on the grain, coated with Crushed Garlic olive oil, salt and pepper, served with rosemary roasted potatoes and asparagus finished with Alderwood smoked salt.

The Leaky Lake vineyard of clay and loam soils lead to a rich seductive fruit forward wine. The 2014 Leaky Lake in the glass is dark with brilliant red and blue hues. The nose has notes of cherry, raspberry and sweet vanilla with notes of cola and spice. On the palate the wine follows the red fruit aromas with cherry, raspberry with black currants. The finish is a minute long, with sweet tannins from both the French oak and beautifully structured fruit of the Mayacamas Mountain. While very tempting to drink now cellar for 5-10 years will be well rewarded.
The 2016 Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc pairs amazingly with grilled shrimp topped with Cultivar Lime olive oil and roasted or grilled spring vegetables.
201Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc is a rich wine all the way from the aromas to the palate with a long finish. The first impression is of tropical fruits that are followed by hues of lemon zest; granny smith apples, and green gage plums. On the palate you feel the richness of fruit with notes of vanilla from the French oak barrel aging. The richness is balanced with brightness from tropical fruits and a hint of minerality on the finish. Like all of the Cultivar wines, the 2016 Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc is a food wine that perfectly pairs with cheese goat and sheep milk cheeses and will work well with a variety of salads.
