Thank you to those who joined us for Brunch in the Vineyard! This event, held exclusively for our wine club members, offered a unique seated experience within the individual vineyard rows at Corral Creek, home of our winery. Brunch included seasonal, locally sourced items from our culinary team; Becca Richards, Nathan Jones, and Tirzah Thompson. We had a fantastic time and can’t wait to welcome you back to the vineyard in the future! Until then, enjoy recipes for Chef Becca’s two most requested dishes of the day!
