The Perfect Pinot Noir for Summer – Cellars 33 Sonoma Coast

posted on June 7th, 2017 by Sara Trujillo

Cellars 33 Pinot Noir Sonoma County Suggested Retail $36.99 Sale price is $16.99 Save $20! Purchase 6 or more bottles and receive an additional 10% discount! You may remember this wine’s prior siblings, the Guidici and Brousseau vineyards. Well, this beauty continues the trend of excellent Pinot at a very affordable price. From a blend of grapes sourced from three vineyard sites, including Keefer (one of the producer's vineyard designates), this wine boasts a noticeably supple texture, with a soft expression of cranberry and red cherry aromas. Moderately light cherry red color in the glass, the robust fruit flavors of Bing cherry with added nuances of bramble and spice leads to a mid-weight, wild strawberry core touched by oak. The finish is largely driven by brooding red fruit and smooth tannins. This Pinot really opens up with more time in the glass…problem is, it doesn’t last very long! *Promo valid from June 7 - June 13, 2017 All selections are 750ml… Read More

Leftover BBQ Recipe Ideas

posted on June 5th, 2017 by Sara Trujillo

Summer is in full swing - and we're absolutely loving it. From sunny days at the beach to picnics at the park to backyard barbecues with our family and friends, we're finding lots of reasons to eat well this season. Summer is also a time to relax a little more - and sometimes, that means finding shortcuts in the kitchen so that we can spend more time with those who matter most. So what's the best cooking shortcut we can suggest?Taking full advantage of barbecue leftovers. If you already enjoy grilling on the weekends, then why not grill a little extra so that you can eat well all week long? Here are some of our favorite barbecue leftover recipe ideas... Barbecue Quesadillas: Simply slice up leftover steak, brisket, or chicken and evenly layer on one half of a large tortilla along with shredded Monterey Jack, green onions, and diced tomatoes. Spread a light layer of your favorite BBQ sauce on the other side, fold, and place on an oiled pan over medium heat. Cook for 1-2 minutes… Read More

Copper River King Salmon is Here! Get it Before it’s Gone!

posted on June 2nd, 2017 by Craig Tsuchiyama

We've long awaited this rare and prize-winning salmon and it's finally here! Copper River season officially began and we have already received our first allotment of the delicious, lean, ruby-red salmon with a subtle and mild flavor that you're sure to love. So what's all the hype about? Copper River salmon is very scarce - especially the King variety. This year, the harvest for Copper River King salmon was about a quarter of last year's harvest. With so few caught, we're extremely proud to be a distributor of this rare and decadent fish. The Copper River derives its name from the rich copper deposits found along the riverbank. First used by the Alaska native population, and later by settlers of the Russian Empire and the United States, this massive body of water has 13 major tributaries, is a mile wide and runs at 7 miles per hour. Dropping an average of 12 feet per mile and draining 24,000 square miles, it is the 10th largest river in the United States.  It is up this… Read More

MMM… Big Time!

posted on May 26th, 2017 by Sara Trujillo

Marinated 48 hours in our own premium, natural sauce, our tri-tip is full of smokey, sweet and peppery flavor from first bite to last. Want to make your own masterpiece? Here's how! Love the butchery’s Big Time Marinated tri-tip? Grab a jar or two of the same marinade we use in our kitchen. It will knock you out with big-time flavor. Also great for steaks, pork tenderloin, chicken and lamb. (Pst..Try a taste in the Deli Department.) Grilling Tri-Tip with Big Time marinade, preheat your grill on high. Place the tri-tip over the high heat to sear the meat and create nice grill marks; leave on 2 to 3 minutes per side. Turn the heat down to low and cook for approximately 20 minutes per pound, turning the meat about every 7 to 8 minutes. Test if the meat is done by inserting a meat thermometer in to the thickest part of the meat. The tri-tip should read 120°F for a rare roast, 130°F for medium-rare and 140°F for medium. Take the tri-tip off the grill when it has reached your… Read More

Grilled Peaches!

posted on May 26th, 2017 by Sara Trujillo

Your Summer Dessert Secret Weapon: Peaches on the Grill It’s not summer if you’re not firing up the grill, and lucky for you there’s some seriously great meat on special to kick off the party. And to finish things off sweetly, we have a secret tip for something special: grilled peaches. When you grill peaches (or other stone fruits), you perform a kind of magic. The heat of the grill makes the natural sugars caramelize, creating a new sweet and smoky flavor that will make you an instant fan. And you don’t have to serve the peaches warm to get the full flavor impact. Grill them up in advance, pop them in the fridge, and serve when you’re ready. And though you can use the grilled peaches in an endless variety of ways, some of our favorites are the simplest: Just top with whipped cream, Mascarpone cheese, cinnamon, chopped nuts, honey, or all of the above! How to grill fruit Our favorites for grilling: Peaches (of course!), nectarines, bananas, pineapple, strawberries… Read More

Wordly Chardonnays for Summer

posted on May 26th, 2017 by Sara Trujillo

Chardonnay is one of the most diverse and planted white wine grapes in the world (can you guess the #1 most planted white varietal? Answer given below). It is coveted for its rich profile, be it Sonoma or Napa based, to the lean, scintillating Chablis of France and the light-and-zesty Blanc de Blancs Champagne and sparkling wines from around the world. For much of its history, a connection was assumed between Chardonnay and Pinot Noir or Pinot Blanc. In addition to being found in the same region of France for centuries, botanists noted that the leaves of each plant share near-identical shape and structure. Viticulturalists proposed a descendency from Muscat of Alexandria, an "ancient vine" and still one of the oldest genetically unmodified vines still in existence. Just when we think we have the completed link to its lineage, its origins are further obscured by those who claim that the grape's ancestry can be traced to the Middle East, where it was introduced to Europe by the… Read More

The Perfect Memorial Day Merlot – The Human Condition

posted on May 24th, 2017 by Michael Cristillo

The Human Condition Merlot Suggested Retail $25.99 Sale price is $12.99  Save 50%! Purchase 6 or more bottles and receive an additional 10% discount! Okay, an odd name for an excellent bottle of Merlot. And since this is Memorial Day weekend we’re talking about here, it only makes sense to offer something very special for the occasion. This selection is 100% estate grown Merlot with pedigree and elegance to spare. This sublime Merlot is a wonderful testament to Mendocino county, an oft neglected appellation since Napa and Sonoma lie just south of it. Deeply rich and balanced, this beauty is integrated with blueberries, hints of cocoa, and anise that signal the lovely earth and ripe black cherry notes that follow. The finish just keeps on coming. Ideal with your favorite cut of beef, burgers, our handmade sausage and of course, lamb. The grapes were purchased from the Welch Family Vineyards. Mark and Corey Welch have been farming their 32 acres for nearly 40 years… Read More
