Ranch + Vine: DaVero Farm + Bucher Winery

August 27, 2017

Whole Animal Summer Lunch Series

There’s nothing more emblematic of Sonoma County than our local farms and wineries. This summer, Chefs Scott Romano (Dry Creek Kitchen) and Casey and Patrick Van Voorhis (Spoonbar) are joining forces to present an al fresco Sunday lunch series celebrating whole animal cookery and some of our favorite Sonoma County wineries.

On Sunday, August 27, our chef team takes on a whole lamb from Healdsburg’s DaVero Farms. The result: a multi-course lunch starting with an assortment of Moroccan-inspired appetizers and leading its way through the lamb, from head to tail. Bucher Winery will be on hand to provide lunch pairings, along with Chef Charlie Palmer’s craft blonde ale for the reception.

$62 per person. Ticket price includes lunch, wine/beer, tax and gratuity
