Top Winemaker Pairings for a Stellar Summer Vacation


Top Winemaker Pairings for a Stellar Summer Vacation

Summer is here and that means taking time for the R&R we all deserve. Our winemakers are packing their bags (and filling their wine checks) this summer, and we are taking their cues on how to do vacation right. From memorable family gatherings to getting away with that someone special, our team has the right wines for any occasion.

"Once we were vaccinated, my wife and I looked at each other and simultaneously asked, should we go on vacation? It was an instant yes for both of us. We’re handing our son over to the grandparents, and we are going to Cabo. Five whole days of just mom and dad time. I plan to scout out the best fish tacos ever made. We may stash the Bella Union Sauv Blanc in our suitcase to go with them. We’re planning to follow all safety guidelines, but we have an agenda and we’re going for it!”

-Michael Accurso, EnRoute and Post & Beam Winemaker

Les Pommiers

“We always head up to my grandfather’s cabin at Lake Tahoe in July for some serious family time. We hike and swim and play a lot of games. We also come well stocked with a wide variety of wines to share and enjoy while up there. One of my favorite traditions is sitting around the table at night with my husband and parents playing dominos or cards. We always have a bottle of wine on the table with us as we laugh and play, and one of our favorites is the EnRoute “Les Pommiers” Pinot Noir. It is a perfect wine for warm summer nights with family."

-Nicole Marchesi, Far Niente Winemaker

"After we wrap the bottling of our 2019 Cabernets, Hannah, Sonny and I are heading to Hawaii. Hawaii is our happy place; we surf every morning and afternoon, taking turns watching Sonny while the other surfs. Of course, we always check a case of wine which will include some Nickel & Nickel Truchard Chardonnay, EnRoute Pinot and bubbles to pair with all the poke and açaí bowls, not to mention the Hawaiian sunsets.”

– Joe Harden, Nickel & Nickel Winemaker
