Harvest Hands Series | Cooking with Berries

Somerston Estate

August 17, 2019
Hosted by: Priest Ranch
Time: 10:30 AM - 2:30 PM
Price: $195 per person / $175 members

"Our Harvest Hands Series is a hands-on experience that will spark your passion for cooking while enjoying a range of wine during this four-hour adventure at our estate. Each month we will work with seasonal ingredients and a trained chef to teach you simple techniques that will take you culinary level up a notch. Everything you make will be served alongside lunch and paired with Priest Ranch wines. Our wine specialists and a local chef will discuss how each wine pairs, specifically with certain foods - a skill that you will be sure to impress with at your next social gathering. You will take home recipes and samples to assist you in recreating each meal year after year.

In August, we will work with a variety of berries fresh from our gardens and local farmers. We will explore adventurous ways to use them on cheese boards, in sauces, and creating desserts. Chances are you will get your hands dirty and stained, so this is an event that you may regret wearing white too.

The last event in the Harvest Hands Series will, of course, be wine grapes! You won't be cooking in the kitchen, but instead working in the vineyards alongside our Vineyard Manager and assisting in the creation of our 2019 vintage. After all your hard work, our winemaking team will join you for a harvest lunch. We hope to see you on multiple dates!"
