Lynmar Estate in Sonoma's Russian River Valley Expands Summer Picnic Pairings with Early April Arrival

 

“We are so fortunate to be able to hand-pick the absolute best produce straight from our gardens and pair it with wines crafted from the adjacent vineyard,” said Lynmar Estate Chef David Frakes. “This is the quintessential, Russian River Valley wine and food experience.”

 

 

Sebastopol, California, March 30, 2015 (McKenzieNewsService.com) - Lynmar Estate announced today the return of its summer Picnic Pairings, to begin Saturday, April 17, at Lynmar Estate, 3909 Frei Rd., Sebastopol, CA, offering guests a complete culinary experience with estate-grown and locally sourced lunches paired with select Lynmar wines. The summer lunch offering comes a month earlier than usual this year in response to its overwhelming popularity last year.
 
Lynmar believes that the fundamental pull of wine is its relationship with food. From now through October, guests will enjoy a farm to table lunch on the beautiful Tasting Room Courtyard that overlooks the stunning Quail Hill Vineyard and surrounding gardens. The bountiful gardens are home to exotic flowers and the very ingredients that make up the lunch menu’s freshness and flavor.
 
“We are so fortunate to be able to hand-pick the absolute best produce straight from our gardens and pair it with wines crafted from the adjacent vineyard,” said Lynmar Estate Chef David Frakes. “This is the quintessential, Russian River Valley wine and food experience.”
 
Frakes works closely with the gardeners to plan the menus for the season. He uses the freshest ingredients from the Estate’s organic vegetable gardens, fruit and olive trees, augmented by select items from local farms. Three different Estate and locally sourced picnic pairing menus will be introduced over the summer, inviting guests to return for exciting new culinary experiences throughout the season.
 
The year's first picnic offering begins with a bowl of tossed organic popcorn sprinkled with Moro blood orange-chervil salt. A glass of Russian River Valley Chardonnay complements a salad of estate field greens, shaved fennel, celery, and watermelon daikon radish, dressed with Meyer lemon-grain mustard vinaigrette. The entrée, paired with a glass of Russian River Pinot Noir, is a sandwich of Black Forest ham served in warm Village Bakery brioche roll, topped with Bellwether Farm’s San Andreas, grilled garden scallions, Bibb lettuce and huckleberry-lavender thyme aioli. All picnics are served with fresh fruit and house made cookies.
 
The Lynmar Estate Picnic Pairings are offered beginning April 17, and throughout the summer from Wednesday – Sunday, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. The lunches are $55 per person, and reservations are required. Reservations can be made by calling (707) 829-3374 x102 or at
reserve@lynmarestate.com.
