Recipes from Napa: Carbonada Stew

Winter is here and we have settled into a cozy cycle of drizzle, and fog in Napa. I cherish quiet winter evenings with the fireplace going and the family tucked indoors for the evening. On these nights I like to prepare comfort foods: stews, chilis, and roasts. One stew that is a favorite in our house is the Argentine Classic Carbonada. Traditionally in the winter, it is served inside a pumpkin and is the perfect dish to use any left over fall pumpkins.  In my opinion the perfect stew meat is the naturally tender and richness of our Grass Fed Wagyu from our sister property Genesee Valley Ranch.

Grilling the GVR Wagyu Tomahawk with Salsa Chimichurri

Grilling the GVR Wagyu Tomahawk with Salsa Chimichurri

Excerpted from At the Table and Around the Fire | Pairing: Brasas Cabernet | By Florencia Palmaz

The Asador—the grillmaster of Argentine barbecues—is a near mythical character who holds court over a traditional asado. The GVR Wagyu Tomahawk is a prehistorically-sized cut. The combination of the two means any guest invited to an asado featuring a Tomahawk and a dedicated Asador is in for a legendary night.
This recipe describes the steps to properly grill a Tomahawk and make a traditional Argentine salsa, Chimichurri. It also gives you some tips on how to be a true Asador. Grab your Tomahawks and prepare for a feast!

Amalia’s Empanadas

Amalia’s Empanadas 

Excerpted from At the Table and Around the Fire | By Florencia Palmaz

Argentinians endlessly debate which style of empanada is better and there are quite a few. There’s the Tucuman, which has a juicy filling; the Salteña, which is baked; and the Criolla, fried.  Amalia Palmaz’s recipe for empanadas (the style we cook at the winery) are a spinoff of the Salteña style. While we fill them with a variety of different fillings, the recipe we have here is for our GVR Wagyu Beef Empanadas—which pairs perfectly with a Palmaz Cabernet Sauvignon. Our recipe calls for pre-made empanada rounds from Goya—let’s keep it simple.

On this episode of the Wine Stream and just in time for harvest, we cover the complex climate of wine. With the help of special guest Chief Meteorologist Matt Wanink, we discuss how climate from the global level down to each individual vine affects every vintage. We look back to years when Mother Nature played a significant roll in the vintage as we taste our cabs from 2008, 2011, and 2017. Grab a glass and join us!
