So here we are in the month of August now, but let’s take a little trip down memory lane when it was Miss Chanda Panda’s birthday last month!!! We had to celebrate in zest style which means yummy food, gorgeous design and spending some time with the familia!! We took the boy’s out to Niner winery for a birthday lunch and boy were we all so pleased!! Not only did they have stunning views and delectable wines but their new kitchen is quite a gem too! Definitely hit up Niner winery for one of your next wine tasting outings and time it perfectly with your lunch stop, you won’t be sad.
Did we mention the gorgeous views?? But serioulsy!! They sculpted a heart into the hillside with native oaks and then brought in some gorgeous silver purple accents with the lavendar fields.
Even if you have your own picnic packed for the day, they have a fabulous patio complete with an amazing fireplace…
Now time to get our grub on!
First we nibbled on fresh La Brea Bread and Niner estate olive oil….
Then we dove into some amazing pan-seared scallops with summer corn, heirloom tomatoes and salsa over greens with organic peach slices paired with a 2013 Estate Sauvigon Blanc
Of course we had to get our meat on for the boys, delicious steak sandwhich sliders with petite sirah demi-glace and paired with 2012 Estate Petite Sirah
Lastly we got our carbs on for “dessert” with the crispy baby potatoes with house made wine-infused mustard aioli paired with a 2012 Estate Chardonnay
We were quite the happy campers
Hope you can jump on over to Niner soon!! We are excited because we have a mixer there tomorrow night, oh darn we have to go back!!
