Food at Preston of Dry Creek Farm Day

Entertainment was lively and local

I tried to come up with a catchy title for this post but it really all boils down to the food.  It was fantastic.  The beginning was a savory peach focaccia that compelled me to eat a whole slice.  After the walk there was a great display of cheese, crackers and Preston cured olives.  Of course, the wine was being served.  Vin Gris was a real hit with the refreshing fruit flavors.  Preston of Dry Creek wines are primarily Rhone-style and fit well with the farming emphasis.

The meal was prepared by Dino Bugico, chef of Diavola Pizzeria in nearby Geyserville.  The centerpiece of the menu was the boned and rolled pork from the farm.   A lamb was, also, prepared in the wood burning oven.  The complementing side dishes were fresh vegetables prepared in a variety of ways.   Everyone had plenty to eat and drink. 

Entertainment was a bluegrass band that kept the afternoon hopping.

This is an event that is open to Wine Club members of Preston of Dry Creek.  Most wineries have wine club parties but none are as informative and relaxed as Farm Day.
