Food Trucks & Wine

This past weekend was beautiful in Wine Country this weekend.  We had the privilege of hosting our 1st Annual Sip, Bite & Blog Conference – a conference for food bloggers.  It was fantastic to meet everyone in person, talk about food, and cook for everyone.

The fun continues at Kendall-Jackson this weekend.  Saturday, October 1st, is our last farm stand of the year at the Kendall-Jackson Wine Center.  We are happy that some of our gourmet food truck friends will be coming again – Chicago Style Hot Dogs, Dim Sum Charlie’s and Karma.  I can’t wait to have a hot dog paired with a nice, cool glass of Chardonnay!

The food truck trend is spreading throughout the country and it is a really exciting and convenient way to eat.  Last fall, Winemaster Randy Ullom and I headed to LA to host a fundraiser for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.  The event featured food from some of LA’s coolest gourmet food trucks paired with Kendall-Jackson wines.  LA is the birthplace of the gourmet food truck scene, so I was pretty excited, especially because I got to ride around with them.  Here is one of the videos showing some highlights of our trip.
