Barbecue or brunch – what will it be?
Raise a glass with Ferrari-Carano as we toast to dad! As you pull together Father’s Day plans, let us be part of the memory-making: take in a scrumptious and bountiful brunch at the estate, or keep the festivities more low-key with a backyard barbecue paired with some of your favorite Ferrari-Carano wines.
“La Colazione Italiana” — Breakfast Italian Style!
If you’re lucky enough to be near us in Sonoma County, start dad’s day off right by stopping by Villa Fiore for Sunday Wine & Brunch in Ferrari-Carano’s Sycamore Grove. The Italian attitude of hospitality is alive at the Villa and we welcome you to take a seat at our table this Father’s Day. Sweet or savory, dad will be in for a satisfying treat. Bites of crusty breakfast pizza topped with crispy Applewood smoked bacon and our estate egg-yolk emulsion excite the palate alongside a flight of perfectly paired Ferrari-Carano wines, or enjoy a fresh prosciutto benedict with zesty arugula. Is dad a vegetarian? Our menu options can easily accommodate both gluten free and vegetarian dietary restrictions so that everyone can join in on the fun!
Planning for Father’s Day can feel overwhelming. How do you make Dad feel special? The good news is that Sunday Wine & Brunch is sure to please everyone – especially the dad who “already has everything.” Drive on over to Villa Fiore for a feast that will bring a smile to dad’s face.
Reservations for Sunday Wine & Brunch fill up much more quickly than dad’s stomach, so book ahead here to secure your spot.
A Backyard Barbecue for Dad
Ferrari-Carano 2021 Dry Sangiovese Rosé, Sonoma County
Ferrari-Carano 2018 Merlot, Sonoma County
Preparing a Father’s Day barbecue at home? Some of our favorites include our Shrimp Skewers with Romesco Sauce paired with our Dry Sangiovese Rosé and Porterhouse Steak with Garlic Confit on the grill paired with our Merlot for a simple but elevated surf and turf meal.
Before diving into the main event, uncork a bottle of our Dry Sangiovese Rosé and pull together our tasty shrimp skewers. Fresh citrus and fragrant herbs in the romesco sauce complement the refreshing acidity in our Rosé excellently – this combo is sure to keep everyone (especially dad!) coming back for more. Be sure to make an extra serving or two of our shrimp skewers; we promise that you’ll be glad that you did!
Choose to serve the shrimp as a fun and easily-shareable appetizer, or serve it alongside tender and marbled porterhouse steaks with generous pours of Merlot for a relaxing and enjoyable Father’s Day afternoon with Ferrari-Carano. Garlic confit seems to transform alongside notes of pomegranate in our Merlot, and flavors of black pepper in your glass makes it an excellent match for this juicy and delicious cut – a perfect barbecue pairing.
Falling just two days before the summer solstice, these Father’s Day pairings will carry you far beyond just dad’s celebratory meals. Bring these wines along for your breezy beachside cookouts, or prepare them for your dinner party with friends. And if you choose to skip a big meal this Father’s Day, Ferrari-Carano is perfect for long chats on the patio (or video chat) with dad too. Cheers!
