Calendar of Events at Buttonwood
A wine club pick-up party, vineyard tours, cooking classes... There's always something going on!
Spring Vineyard Walk and Scavenger Hunt
Sunday, April 23rd 11:00am - 1:30pm
Buttonwood Farm Vineyard, Solvang CA
Join in the excitement of the beginnings of the 2017 vintage with a trek around our beautiful, sustainably farmed vineyard. Our winemaker, Karen, will lead the walk which will include her annual, wacky scavenger hunt. You'll be on the lookout for natural elements and who knows what else on the scavenger list, with fabulous prizes to be awarded! The walk includes a few hills and vales and takes about an hour (we won't make you walk!), with a few "wine stops" along the way. We'll end up at our vineyard pond to be rewarded with a seasonal brunch and paired wines under the shade of the Cottonwood trees. Just $45 for General Public and $40 for Imbibers Club members.
Cooking with Pascale
Saturday, May 13th 1:00 - 3:00pm
Tasting Room Patio, Solvang CA
Our friend, colleague and favorite cooking chef, Pascale Beale, returns to Buttonwood to show us how to take advantage of farm-fresh fruits and vegetables. As she shows us how to make these delicious dishes, we'll talk about wine pairings with each course - and then taste each with a Buttonwood estate grown wine. The menu includes
Leek, Snap Pea and Burrata Salad (w/Blanc de Noirs sparkling Pinot Noir)
Puff Pastry Tarts with Carmelized Onions, Olives, Goat Cheese and Pesto (w/Grenache Rosé)
Strawberry and Lemon Pots de Creme (w/Syrah Rosé)
Spend some time talking to Pascale about her current (and upcoming!) cookbooks, which she'll be happy to sign for you at the event. We'll be "in the pink" with the class, pouring our popular Blanc de Noirs, and Rosés. Space is limited, so get your tickets early|
For an extra special treat for Mother's Day Weekend, make it a "stay-cation" at For Friends Inn in Santa Ynez. Visit their website at www.forfriendsinn.com for details. Tickets to the cooking class are included in their Mothers Day Weekend Package.
