Rombauer Tasting (Los Gatos)

Rombauer Tasting (Los Gatos)
from 20.00

Date: Thursday, August 30th

Time: 6 - 8pm

Join ELS Los Gatos in welcoming Rombauer Vineyards! 

"We believe in doing everything in our power to produce the best wines possible."  
-Rombauer Vineyards  

Koerner and Joan Rombauer moved to the Napa Valley in 1972 with an immense appreciation for the relationship between food and wine. Many believe this is accredited to Irma Rombauer, Koerner's great aunt, who wrote the renowned cookbook The Joy of Cooking, as well as the ancestry of the Rombauer family stemming from the wine-growing region of Rheingau, Germany.

Since the release of their first wine in 1984, Rombauer Vineyards has had only three head winemakers. This has helped them achieve consistency in their style — distinctive, bold and fruit-driven wines. In addition to the signature style, Rombauer is continually refining and improving winemaking practices. Because of such high-quality standards and practices, Rombauer Vineyards has been awarded a place on many exclusive lists, including Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines list and Wine + Spirits Magazine’s Top 10 Chardonnays! 

Our Domestic Wine Specialist Joe Chiodo will host the tasting with a selection of wines for guests to sample, information on the wine and the producer, exclusive pricing on the evening's wines, & more! We look forward to seeing you there!

General $25+ / WC Members $20 plus tax

If you would also like to join us for dinner, reservations are recommended.

Joe's Heirloom Tomatoes and Jazz (Los Gatos)

We’ve developed a bit of a cult following for the heirloom tomatoes from our little farm in Los Gatos.  Each year we harvest up to 4,000 pounds of meticulously, organically grown, exotic heirloom tomatoes.  We turn them into simple, but exquisite dishes that showcase the quality of the ingredients and farming.  

Our special tomato menu usually runs from mid-July through the end of October.  

During the best part of the season - early August - each year, we host “The Don Olivet Quartet” and Girasole Imports for “Tomatoes and Jazz”.  It’s an event where you can experience ten unique heirloom tomato dishes, with 25 of the most tomato appropriate paired Italian wines, and listen to some amazing live Jazz from a legendary local.             Click here to learn more about the Don Olivet quartet.

Fried Chicken and Champagne with Chef Sefton and Blue Ribbon (Los Gatos)

Fried Chicken and Champagne with Chef Sefton and Blue Ribbon (Los Gatos)

Back in the early 80’s, while growing up in North Jersey, one of our owners, Joe Cannistraci, met Sefton Stallard.  They became lifelong friends. After graduating from college, Sefton attended culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, along with high school friends Bruce and Suzanne. After graduating, Sefton traveled and worked for various restaurants such as the respected “Patina” in Los Angeles, while Bruce went on to co-own, with his brother Eric, what is now the legendary Blue Ribbon Brasserie on Sullivan St. in Greenwich Village.  Sefton eventually ended up back in New York and was placed at the helm of the kitchen of the Blue Ribbon Bakery. The Blue Ribbon Empire has since grown to over 16 locations.  Click here to read more about the restaurants. 

So where does fried chicken fit into the story?  Twenty years ago, the Blue Ribbon brothers developed a unique spice blend and method of breading chicken that became so good, an American classic in a French inspired brasserie was born! The dish became a huge underground New York City cult classic, loved by the likes of every day people to Hollywood celebs.  

This fried chicken is SO GOOD we are bringing this epic recipe to the Silicon Valley to be
featured in our Fried Chicken and Champagne tasting event!   See menu below.

RESERVATIONS WITH A CREDIT CARD HOLD ARE REQUIRED. A $24 per person fee will be charged if a cancellation is made within 48 hours of the reservation. Please book by calling us at (408)625-7272 or clicking the link below.
