There’s nothing quite like spending an afternoon or weekend visiting wine county. The sunshine warms the air much more than it does in foggy San Francisco, and a getaway to this region of Northern California never seems to fail it’s visitors. Thankfully, Napa is only a quick hour and a half drive from the sparkling city by the bay, but for others that advantage simply isn’t there due to proximity. Thankfully for those that cannot make the trip as often as they may desire, there are great options to have wine and goodies delivered straight to your doorstep, no matter where you live!
Once I got introduced to Clif Family Winery at the start of spring this year, I knew that having their goodies delivered more regularly would be a treat, especially after a long days work when the rich 2015 Gary’s Improv Zinfandel is calling your name. This wine is made with grapes from a 102-year-old vines creating a wonderful structure perfect for a backyard gathering this summer. Pair it with the powerful flavors of Smoked Spanish Pimenton Almonds for a taste that lends itself well to the California wine lifestyle for instant happiness and a sense of relaxation.
In addition to the 2015 Zinfandel, a fruit forward 2016 Rte Blanc Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc pairs so well with Clif Family’s sweet and spicy Maple Curried Cashews + Peanuts. Additionally, this wine lends itself well to a Meyer Lemon Marmalade made with organic Meyer Lemons from Clif Family Farm during a hot summer day at the beach or at the park. A true summer wine, this mouthwatering flavors of passionfruit, peach and fresh-squeezed lime will have you filling up your glass more than just once!
Though I have not visited Clif Family Winery just yet, this shipment will hold me over until I make my way up to the stunning property to taste even more varieties and to check out their very own Bruschetteria Food Truck located on the property! Talk about a perfect summer afternoon with friends, am I right?! If you’d like to get the best of Clif Family delivered to your doorstep as well, be sure to check out the different levels of wine clubs offered, including event invites, free tastings and more!
