St. Supéry Estate Horticulturist Brianne Hoover works closely with Estate Chef Tod Kawachi to grow most of the produce used in our experiences at the winery and at Dollarhide Ranch. From a wine and food aroma identification session to a sit-down wine and food pairing, the majority of edibles are grown by Bri.
Please join us this spring for informative and interactive virtual tastings where Bri will share her knowledge as Chef Tod creates a vegetable-centric dish and our winemakers choose a wine to pair with it.
Bri Hoover has shared her expertise on previous virtual tastings like how to grow cucumbers, how to maximize a patio garden, home composting and which plants benefit from companion planting. This spring, Bri will dive deeper into specific topics so that you can feel confident in starting or nurturing a vegetable garden at home no matter where you live.
The benefits of homegrown food are many. When you grow your own food, your diet is more diverse and healthy, packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Gardening is a fun way to get outside for some fresh air and physical activity. It’s better for the environment and offers a great sense of pride as you literally reap your rewards.
