Syrah & Sliders 2014

This past Saturday we had the chance to celebrate dad for Father's Day with our Syrah & Sliders event that was held in our estate barrel room and VIP room.  


Guests who attended were able to enjoy an assortment of Syrah's from Fess Parker Winery and Epiphany Cellars which included our flagship wine, Rodney's Vineyard Syrah, along with our premium red blend, Crockett.  From Epiphany Cellars we featured two single vineyard Syrah's, Stagecoach Syrah along with Hampton Vineyard Syrah.

Guests were also able to pair their Syrah's with a trio of sliders that were being cooked up throughout the event. All three sliders were made with local grass-fed beef from Dey Dey's Best Beef Ever located about 20 minutes away in the Sta. Rita Hills.

Slider #1:  House-made brioche bun, grilled onions, tomato, arugula oil, Muenster cheese.    

Slider #2:  King's Hawaiian roll, roasted garlic aioli, roasted red pepper, parsley.

Slider #3:  House-made brioche bun, bacon jam, sharp cheddar cheese, green leaf lettuce.

We want to thank all the dad's and everyone who attended Syrah & Sliders and hope that you had a great time.  Also a big thank you to Dey Dey's Best Beef Ever for supplying us with such great beef for our sliders.
