Our trip to Saluti Vineyard in Somerset California

      Our trip to Saluti Vineyard in Somerset California

       

            If a picnic had any rules it would be to relax and enjoy

           nature with delicious easy to eat finger foods. I can’t

            think of a more calm tranquil place to enjoy a picnic

            than the mediterranean style vineyards of Saluti.

             

           Their wine estate is nestled in the hills of Somerset

          California in the wine region of Fairplay located about

          50 miles south of Lake Tahoe. It is at around 3500ft

         elevation with beautiful madrone, redwoods, a small lake,

         wine caves, a wedding barn and intimate cottage suites. It

         is really an idyllic serene retreat from the valley. If you want to

      get up in elevation and out of the valley this is a little slice of heaven.

              

              

               Spent the early morning sourcing the foods needed

             for the Greek Summer Feast we were planning. Now it

             was time to fire up the ovens and start cooking. Our menu…

          Pork and Turkey Keftedes meatballs, Deliciously Fresh Greek Salad,

         Crispy Parmesan-Lemon Potato, Greek Shrimp Saganaki with Feta,

        Peach Galette, Fresh Market Plums and Pluots and Saluti Wines.

                    

                    

                   Greek Baked Prawns with Feta, Tomato and Oregano

                    

                   Beautiful Greek Salad and Greek Meatballs made with

                Turkey, Pork Preserved Lemons then pan seared in olive

             oil in our Staub cast iron skillet

                   

                 Peach Galettes

                  

                   Parmesan Crusted Potato with Preserved Lemon

                   

                      Not only do they have hundreds of acres of award

                    winning wine grapes they also have areas on their estate

                    devoted to organic vegetable gardens and raising

                    grass fed beef, lamb and chickens. They are truly

                  living a farm to fork lifestyle.
