In this class, we’ll explore the many delicious styles and facets of Cakebread Pinot Noir—we now make five different bottlings that reflect the varietal’s impressive range—by pairing it with an equally versatile food: pork, fresh and cured, mild and spicy, in recipes inspired by several cuisines.

To enjoy with our Pinot Noirs, we’ll make grilled pears wrapped in serrano, Carmody cheese biscuits with smoked ham and pepper jelly, black bean and spicy pork tinga tostadas, steamed clams with homemade Italian sausage, pork Milanese, and yes, bacon truffles.

All classes are participation style and include a tour of the property, a tasting of Cakebread Cellars wines (except for the children’s classes), the cooking class and a three-course lunch paired with wine. All participants leave with a Cakebread Cellars logo apron, a booklet of the recipes and wine notes from the day, some great memories and quite often, new friends.
