Movable Feasts

  • Movable Feasts
  • Episode 15: The SWAT Team – How to Keep Pests Away From Your Picnics … Naturally

    It sucks to have your picnic or barbecue ruined by a swarm of flies … or yellow jackets … or mosquitoes. So we’ve come up with ways to keep them away, naturally.

  • Go Gear Guide

    Eating on the go has gone so beyond the same-old, same-old picnic basket. Think shatterproof wine glasses, bottle holders for the beach and portable wireless speakers. Here are our favorite picks for “Go Gear.

  • Episode 16: Turning Farmers Market Veggies Into Portable Feasts

    One of my very favorite ways to turn farmers market veggies into great picnic and potluck fare is by making a frittata.

  • Summer Movie Watch List

    Summertime and the viewing is easy. Time to gather with your friends and take in some summer flick fun. Our wine and film pairing recommendations range from the usual suspects (including The Usual Suspects) to some fare that’s a little off the beaten path. By the way, you may surprised at how well organic popcorn goes with Bonterra wines!

  • Barbecued Beef Back Ribs with Spicy-Sweet Zinfandel Glaze

    Beef back ribs are downright decadent … they’re tender and succulent and rich and GIANT. If you can find grass fed beef for these, use it, and definitely open a bottle of Bonterra Zinfandel.

  • Saucy Summer Pinto Beans

    These beans are based on the Santa Maria style beans from California’s Central Coast. They’re terrific with our Barbecued Beef Ribs … or even with hamburgers. Open a bottle of Bonterra Merlot with these.

  • Grilled Corn and Farro Salad with Chipotle-Lime Vinaigrette

    Farro is one of my favorite grains for salads. It’s hearty and flavorful all on its own, and melds super well with other flavors. Pair with our Zinfandel or Viognier.

  • Pan Bagnat Sandwiches

    These sandwiches are like a Nicoise salad on bread. They’re great for picnics; the longer they sit, the better they get. This particular recipe was inspired by the sandwiches Selina Luis brought with us when we visited Magruder Ranch. Serve with Bonterra Pinot Noir or Sauvignon Blanc.

  • Giardiniera

    Giardiniera is an Italian staple; a colorful medley of pickled vegetables marinated with oil, vinegar and spices. It makes terrific picnic fare and is quite versatile depending on what’s popping at the farmers market. Nibble with a glass of Bonterra Sauvignon Blanc or Merlot.

  • Zucchini and Red Pepper Frittata with Basil

    Frittatas are one of my very favorite picnic foods. They’re actually better at room temperature, and are refreshing and perfect paired with a butter leaf salad and a glass of Bonterra Sauvignon Blanc.

  • Antipasto Pasta Salad

    Fresh organic veggies are bathed in a tangy Italian marinade and tossed with artichokes, mozzarella and crisp red peppers for a pasta salad that’s as full of color as it is flavor.
