A SAN JOES INT’L SHORT FILM FESTIVAL VIP MIXER & TASTING

At Vintage Wine Merchants, Santana Row

377 Santana Row, Suite 1135

Prescription Vineyards is celebrating our multi-year sponsorship of the San Jose Int’l Short Film Festival and our recent feature article in The Somm Journal magazine. The ‘Aerating the Sun’ story and interview with Winemaker Rob Lloyd highlight why our Chardonnay makes such an excellent wine for restaurant By-the-Glass (BTG) programs.

Amazingly, after providing the editors with a list of venues that showcase us BTG, they chose to interview Issei Chiba of Santana Row’s Vintage Wine Merchants. The hybrid wine shop and wine bar are directly across the street from the film festival’s venue, Cinemark’s CineArts Theatre. If you’d like to attend the San Jose Int’l Short Film Fest, use PROMO CODE: PV2022 to receive 20% off on all tickets!

Issei also pairs our Prescription Vineyard’s Clarksburg Chardonnay with the kitchen’s ‘Mortadell-Burrata Pizza,’ so it seemed apropos to serve up hosted bites of this delicious pie during the event. To round out the experience, we’ll also share tastes of our Lloyd Cellars Carneros Chardonnay and Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir. The event will be a great opportunity to pre-stock your wine cellar for the upcoming holiday 2022 season!

Please email Joel@LloydCellars.com to RSVP for Saturday’s complimentary wine tasting!

Gina Garbero’s Scallop with White Wine & Butter Sauce Recipe

Gina Garbero Scallop Recipe
Gina Garbero Scallop Recipe

In our most recent Instagram Influencer collaboration with our friends at ApexDrop, we posed the question to everyone, “When was the moment that you realized you loved wine?” We were thinking back to that spellbinding moment in the movie Sideways when actress Virginia Madsen, playing the character Maya, shares her relationship with wine. We paraphrase:

“I like to think about the life of wine. How it’s a living thing. I like to think about what was going on the year the grapes were growing; how the sun was shining – if it rained. I like to think about all the people who tended and picked the grapes….”

As part of this collaboration, we presented the new releases of our Lloyd Cellars 2020 Carneros Chardonnay and 2019 Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir, along with our Lloyd Cellars Wine Journal and pen to help our friends capture future moments and musings over sips of wine with friends and family.

One of the early gems from this collab was the creation of a recipe by our friend, chef, and photographer Gina Garbero, AKA, the_chubby_home_chef. Of course, as a chef who is constantly developing recipes, she’s decided to use the Lloyd Cellars Wine Journal to capture her tasty creations. Check out Gina’s Scallops with White Wine & Butter Sauce recipe below followed by her how-to video!

Recent The Tasting Panel & The Somm Journal Scores for Our New Releases

>>> Down the Aisle

Prescription Cellars 2019 Chardonnay, Clarksburg ($20)

Enhanced by notes of chervil, oregano, and chamomile, a luscious lemon meringue eeks out at mid-palate. Crushed stone, white pepper and vibrant minerality – plus that spark of acidity – is just the right Rx for its great food-pairing abilities. 92

>>> Publisher’s Picks

Lloyd Cellars 2020 Chardonnay, Carneros ($40)

Creamy notes of toasted vanilla, with a surge of cookie dough, ripe melon, kiwi, and peanut brittle. The wine caresses with a sumptuous touch. 94

>>> 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. Winemaker Rob Lloyd over-delivers on some amazing medicine for the soul. 93

>>> Publisher’s Picks Section

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
