Calling all Southern Californian Cambria fans! If you are going to be in or around Newport Beach on Thursday, September 29th, you may want to attend our Cambria Wine Dinner at the Hyatt Regency!
The Hyatt has put together a night of delicious food and wine pairings for the evening, all featuring our Cambria wines! The dinner will feature dishes paired with our Tepusquet Viognier, Katherine’s Vineyard Chardonnay, Julia’s Pinot Noir, Tepusquet Syrah, and Late Harvest Viognier. The dinner is also going to include some just-harvest Cambria grapes that will serve as “edible centerpieces” during the night.
Here’s a look at the menu:
If you are interested, you can RSVP by either calling (949) 729-6057, or by e-mailing email@example.com. We hope you can make it!
Today is a great day for anyone who loves cooking, whether they do it themselves or appreciate other people’s. Why? Because it’s National Culinarians Day!
National Culinarians Day was created to celebrate all of the great food and cooking in our lives, as well as the wonderful people, whether they are our mothers, spouses, or the chefs at our favorite restaurants, who put so much time and love into preparing great food for others to enjoy! To celebrate, you could thank your favorite cook, go out to eat, or explore by cooking something new and exotic that you have never tried before!
As my contribution to Culinarians Day, I wanted to take some time today to let you all know about the culinary section of our Cambria website. For those of you who haven’t checked out any of the recipes from the Food and Wine section of our website, you should! Chef Taki Laliotitis prepared some incredibly delicious recipes just for us, each of which our winemaker Denise helped him to pair with one of our wines!
Here are links to our recipes! In particular, I’d recommend the Pancetta Pizza with the Julia’s – yum!
Pancetta and White Asparagus Pizza - Serve with Julia’s Vineyard Pinot Noir
Thyme Scented Seared Scallops with Morels - Serve with Katherine’s Vineyard Chardonnay
Grilled Duck Breasts with Bing Cherry & Plum Sauce - Serve with Tepusquet Vineyard Syrah

Baked Pears with Blue Cheese - Serve with Tepusquet Vineyard Late Harvest Viognier
If you don’t have anything planned for St. Patrick’s Day this weekend…
you should come and visit us at Cambria! We’ll be throwing our annual St. Patrick’s Day party this Saturday, March 12th, from 11:00am – 3:00pm, and we’ll be going all out in our festivities this year! Besides the great atmosphere, you should come to hear traditional Irish music, to take advantage of the wine specials we’ll be offering throughout the day, and to have some of the delicious food and wine pairings that we’ll be serving! Dolce Catering will be providing the food, all of which has been selected to pair beautifully with Cambria wines.
On the menu will be Seared Irish Sausage, Pinot Noir Braised Beef Short Ribs with Garlic and Mustard Roasted Baby Potatoes, and Wild Rice and Barley Stuffed Mushrooms. And for dessert: Apple and Raisin Bread Pudding! We’ll be pairing our Tepusquet Syrah to go with the meatiness of the Seared Sausage and the earthiness of the stuffed mushrooms, and the short ribs will actually be braised in our Bench Break Pinot Noir, which should make the combination of short ribs and Bench Break a perfect match! We’ll be matching our wonderful Rae’s Chardonnay with the apple and raisin bread pudding.
I hope you can make it out and celebrate with us! There is supposed to be beautiful weather in Santa Maria this Saturday, so between the sunshine, the delicious wine, and some seriously mouthwatering-sounding food, it should be a great day!
