We had a blast at the recent Jonathan Adler Sip & Shop event held at their San Francisco Fillmore Street Boutique. Guests enjoyed 20% off Jonathan Adler shopping (what a deal, right!) while sipping on Cultivar Wine. We served our Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc and Napa Valley Rose which were a huge hit! 

Thanks to Jonathan Adler & The JetSetting Fashionista for including us in this fun event.

For those Cultivar Wine Club members that made it, we loved seeing you as always! For those that did not make it we hope to see you next time.

A Simple Wine & Cheese Night Courtesy of Cait of Pretty & Fun

What's the best way to entertain girlfriends and serve a great assortment of delicious food & wine, yet keep it simple? One of our Cultivar Wine Bloggers Cait of Pretty & Fun shared a great post on her blog of doing exactly this. Below is a preview of the post. Please visit Pretty & Fun for the entire story.  

Exerpt from the blog post "There are certain things that are just better together. Peanut butter & jelly. Spaghetti & meatballs. Chuck Bass & Blair Waldorf. The list goes on. For me, one of my all-time favorite pairings happens to be wine and cheese. There’s just nothin’ better than snacking on a cheese plate with a glass of wine in hand."

To celebrate one of the greatest pairings of all time and make the most of our new apartment’s amenities, I wanted to throw a little afterwork wine and cheese night to catchup with girlfriends and unwind from the week and while at first pulling it all together seemed a bit intimidating, it was actually as easy as can be. A look at how it can be easily done.

I tend to feel a little lost while browsing the wine aisle – there are just SO many options, brands and vintages. To keep it simple and set a theme for the night I grabbed several bottles of Cultivar Wine; it was really fun to try a new vineyard together and taste the differences between vintages. Their Cabernet Sauvignon’s were so good (and I’m typically more of a Pinot Noir kind of girl!)

Read the full story on Pretty & Fun here. We hope you have a great party and enjoy yourself. Cheers to delicious wine, great food and fabulous company!

Solo Italian Date Night Courtesy of Avec Mallory

We are so excited to share with you a post by one of our Cultivar Wine Bloggers, Mallory of Avec Mallory.  This is a sneak peak of the post. Please visit Avec Mallory's Solo Italian Date Night post for the entire recipe. Thanks again Mallory for including Cultivar Wine in your delicious date night. 

Exerpt from Avec Mallory "I’m so excited to share this fun new post with you all today with the help of my new favorite Napa Valley winery, Cultivar Wine. I was lucky enough to spend five years living in San Francisco and developed an everlasting love and respect for the Napa Valley. Cultivar is a timeless example of what the valley is truly about. Founded in 2010 by brother and sister Jody and Gingy Harris, it’s a family run business that prides itself on using high quality products all sourced directly from Napa."

"For today’s post, this one goes out to all the single gals or ladies like me who’s chef boyfriend works most nights. Just because you’re home alone doesn’t mean you shouldn’t treat your evening like a date night! As I’ve said before, the thing I find most important about keeping your kitchen game on point is to keep key ingredients always on hand. In the past few months I’ve become completely obsessed with these Trader Joe’s pasta packs. As much as I love making my own pasta, some nights after a 10 hour day you just want to come home and whip something up fast. My favorites are the Porcini Mushroom & Truffle Triangoli and the Girasoli Ricotta & Lemon Zest. So here’s my weeknight dinner for one pasta jam, with a side of fantastic Cultivar Cabernet Sauvignon!"

Voila! Look at the gorgeous finished product. To see the entire recipe, visit Avec Mallory's full post here.

Making the Perfect Cheese Platter paired with Cultivar Wine Courtesy of Kelly of "A Side of Sweet"

We are thrilled to share with you a post by one of our Cultivar Wine Bloggers, Kelly of A Side of Sweet. This is a sneak peak of the post. Please visit A Side of Sweet for the entire recipe (Cheese, crackers, greenery and other yummyness featured below). Kudos Kelly on such a fabulous casual cheese & wine spread.  We love it and are thrilled to share it with our readers. 

"Putting Together a Fancy Wine & Cheese Spread"

Cheese :: "I figured this was my chance to go crazy and get a whole bunch of cheese! I definitely went overboard, which was fine by me because it meant I got to eat my favorite meal of cheese and crackers for dinner the next few nights."

"My first stop was Trader Joe’s where you can get some delicious options that are great for a budget. The I hit up Whole Foods. Although it’s a bit more expensive, the nice thing about Whole Foods is that the staff is super knowledgable and will go out of their way to help you pick the perfect cheese for your occasion. They also had a better selection of local cheeses. Here are the cheeses I got."

Trader Joe’s

Creamy Toscano soaked in Syrah
Parmesan Reggiano
Italian Truffle Cheese
Le Delice de Bourgogne Triple Cream Soft Ripened Cheese
Assortment of Chèvre

Whole Food’s

Cave-Aged Gruyere
Cowgirl Creamery Mt. Tam cheese
Point Reyes Original Blue cheese

Costco

Spanish Tapa’s Assortment
Goat’s Milk Feta

Wine :: "I wanted to go with local wine, so I served Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc from Cultivar Wines. Cultivar is a family-run winery in Napa Valley, California. They make their wines from some of the best grapes in Napa and it shows – when we opened our first bottle I almost fell over! This wine is some of the best I’ve had in California, even with all the trips to wine country that we’ve made since we moved here! I think it was one of the highlights of the night – our guests kept commenting on how good it was!"
