Created by Cesar Olivares, resident fromager at The Staff of Life.
Featuring our Viognier, Sangiovese, and Petite Sirah paired with three world class cheeses accompanied by a light sampling of simple yet quality driven ingredients that all combine into a perfect bite for an elevated flavor experience. More details coming once Cesar can taste the wines…

Milk Chocolate Tortoise & 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon
Roasted pecans and cacao beans with caramel blend in smokey notes and caramel sugar that harmonize beautifully with the depth and roundness of this wine while highlighting the hints of baking spice and cedar
Fresh Raspberry Truffle & 2014 Merlot
Locally farmed raspberries pop with bright fruit flavor and draws out the Merlot’s red fruit.
Peruvian Cacao & 2014 Zinfandel Port
Locally produced chocolate by Mutari in downtown Santa Cruz with a few grains of Monterey Bay Sea Salt. This sublime chocolate with delicate fruit notes of guava and other tropical nuance is a beautiful accompaniment to the rich Zinfandel Port
