Heirloom Tomato Festival

16th Annual Heirloom Tomato Festival

Saturday, September 15, 2012 • 11am - 4pm
Location:  Kendall-Jackson Wine Center, 5007 Fulton Road, Fulton, CA

Taste is at the vanguard of everything we do at Kendall-Jackson; for us, enjoying food and wine is a full sensory experience. Perhaps nothing illustrates this better than the incredible heirloom tomato. Just like wine grapes, heirloom tomatoes have a broad range of flavors, colors and aromatics depending on the variety of tomato. Green tomatoes might offer citrus notes like Sauvignon Blanc, while darker tomatoes can reveal flavors of red fruits like a Pinot Noir. And like wines, heirloom tomatoes are best paired with certain foods to display their unique flavor characteristics.

The 16th Annual Kendall-Jackson Heirloom Tomato Festival showcases the wonderful tastes of Sonoma County, including more than 175 heritage varieties of tomatoes grown in our estate culinary gardens.  Saturday also features a chef competition showcasing the talents of Bravo’s Top Chef contenders Kevin Gillespie and Eli Kirshtein; tomato-inspired dishes from nearly 50 wine country and Bay Area restaurants and food purveyors; wine tasting, garden seminars and sensory garden tours and live music from the Carlos Herrera Band.

Also new this year, #1 New York Times-bestselling author Debbie Macomber will participate in this year’s festival as a celebrity critic, sampling and judging the various tomato-based dishes on Saturday and awarding a “Critic’s Choice” award to her favorite restaurant or food purveyor that afternoon. From her recent cookbook (Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cover Cookbook), to her children’s books to her many bestselling novels (including the forthcoming Inn at Rose Harbor), Debbie is one of today’s most popular authors with more than 150 million books in print worldwide.)

Don’t miss this chance to immerse yourself in the delicious world of heirloom tomatoes, paired with some of your favorite Kendall-Jackson wines!
