philosophy, mission, goals, objectives and mantra are
that wine should be an "extension of the plate" – not
only food-friendly, but an essential ingredient in a
meal. As each new Palmina wine is released, the kitchen
becomes the gathering point with friends, family
and colleagues to write the tasting notes and create
matching recipes. These are included with each Wine Club
shipment and are presented here. Imagine you are sitting
around a large virtual table with the Palmina family – enjoying
a meal, the wine, a spirited conversation and the celebration
of the lifestyle and attitude that is Palmina!
only is Santa Barbara County an incredible place to grow
grapes and make wine, but also a diverse agricultural
region, providing a wide variety of seasonal, fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts,
fish, and meats.
The bounty of Santa Barbara County farms also results
in development of some unique Palmina products: Palmina
Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a cask-aged balsamic vinegar, a range of flavored olive oils,
Cugna from Dolcetto juice and local fruits and nuts,
as well as a range of sea salt products ranging from
a BBQ rub, a finishing salt for risotto and a very
relaxing bath salt. And more in the works!
