Social Media and Wine

2014-july

July is upon us! Happy 4th and Happy Summer to all you rock-stars!

The temperature is rising and no better way to cool off and celebrate our nation’s independence by selecting your favorite red, white or rose. Stop by on the fourth for a tasting or tour and enjoy oysters on the patio. After the fourth the celebration continues with our exciting concert specials including a pre-concert Paella, Pig Roast and 2 for 1 Summer Music Series tickets.

Let social media help you out this summer when looking for new wineries and tasting experiences. With a multitude of apps out there, it’s difficult to choose a favorite. Our customers love WineryFinder, it’s easy to use, and has special offers for those that use the app! Here are some of our other favorite sites and apps that are great to have within reach:

Snooth.com is an excellent website for both wine novices and aficionados. They provide a wealth of information and interesting articles on all aspects of the industry.

Vivino This app has you take a photo of a wine label and connects to an info page about the wine and winery it came from. Perfect for when you’re dining out and want to remember what you liked throughout the evening! It’s a great place to find customer reviews rather than industry reviews.

WineryGeek Another great way to discover local wineries based on your tastes.

4th of July BBQ ideas!
A rich balsamic glaze is the perfect way to take your next BBQ to the next level. Among our balsamics, is our 25 year and a 15 year. Typically a 25 year is much sweeter in taste, and has a ton of flavor; you only ever need a few drops!

 

Grill Asparagus Recipe

AsparagusOut here in California, one of the biggest signs that summer has arrived is seeing fresh asparagus in the grocery store! Our very own Tasha Cohn has a delicious recipe for grilled asparagus with our Meyer Lemon Olive Oil:

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound large asparagus, woody ends trimmed
  • 3 tbsp B.R. Cohn Meyer Lemon Olive Oil, plus more for drizzling
  • ¾ tsp Kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground pepper
  • ½ lemon sliced

Directions:
Preheat grill to Medium.
Combine asparagus with Meyer Lemon Olive Oil, salt, and pepper and toss to coat.
Place asparagus on the grill in a single layer and cook, turning, until marked and tender. About 12 to 15 minutes.
Transfer to a serving platter, drizzle with Meyer Lemon Olive Oil and garnish with sliced lemon.
