About Jamie Hannah
Jamie Hannah seamlessly blends his classical and operatic training with his passion for pop music, resulting in a unique and eclectic sound that draws influences from both revered 17th-century composers, such as Monteverdi and Handel, and contemporary icons including Freddie Mercury, MIKA, Coldplay, and Adele all mixed in with touches from many other musical genres.
An intuitive lyricist and multi-instrumentalist, Jamie has a gift for crafting genuine, raw, and emotionally charged lyrics that explore the raw complexities of life, love, friendship, and society today. He offers a profound and relatable perspective on the world through the piercing eyes of youth. Poignant and captivating, his music portrays his personal experiences and struggles, inviting the listener to accompany him to self-discovery and enlightenment.

Our good friend, Chef and Photographer Gina Garbero, is at it again, developing delicious and quick recipes to pair with our Lloyd Cellars wines. This time she’s offered up a mouthwatering chicken and mushroom dish that integrates our Lloyd Cellars 2020 Carneros Chardonnay into the recipe, which truly enhances the pairing. Make sure to watch Gina’s quick video on preparation below the posted recipe while you sip a glass of Lloyd Cellars 2020 Carneros Chardonnay.
Prep your simple ingredients. Slice the mushrooms and garlic shoots then butterfly the chicken breast so it’s ¼ in thick. Use a meat tenderizer to flatten it so it’s even thickness everywhere. Season with salt and pepper then dredge the breast in cornstarch to give it an even coat.
In a hot skillet with olive oil and fry the chicken on both sides until it’s golden brown. Remove the chicken and set aside.
Add butter to the pan with your garlic shoots and mushrooms. When the mushrooms are browned, add a cup of Lloyd chardonnay. Simmer on medium until the sauce reduces by half.
Serve over the chicken garnished with micro greens. Enjoy with a glass of Lloyd Cellars Carneros Chardonnay.

>>> Down the Aisle
Prescription Cellars 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley, Sonoma County ($30)
Grainy tannins fulfill a mission to coat the teeth with blueberry compote. The gushing, dynamo of a wine features plump plums, powdered cocoa, and blooming lavender. This Prescription is really an over-the-counter cure for disbelievers of Alexander Valley’s side effect of textural lushness.

Lloyd Cellars by Robert Lloyd 2019 Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills, Santa Barbara County ($50)
Its carmine hue is deep and inviting, and scents of heather and a woodsy forest are sensual. Full and generous with a lather of huckleberry and dark chocolate coffee bean. Layers of tilled soil and dried flowers keep it exciting and complex. The brown-sugared cinnamon finish goes deep on the finish. 94
