The Discover the Delta Foundation will be celebrating the raising of the historic Dutra tower on June 1st with a wine (and beer) tasting, food and live music. 
Located along the Sacramento River in Rio Vista, the DTDF is a science-based educational nonprofit organization that is dedicated to teaching people about the wonders of the California Delta and its amazing resources.  With a Farmer's Market that includes a wine tasting room and educational center, the facility will be raising the 132', 55,000 gallon water tower on their site, as a beacon to those visiting.  What an experience to learn about the Delta we love!
In addition, Bogle Winery will be the DTDF's featured winery for Memorial Day weekend, May 26-28th.  Come join the fun as Jody Bogle and other members of the Bogle team share our story over a taste of some summer sippers!

NORTHERN NEIGHBORS & BOGLE !!
Jim and Connie Marshall are some of our top Bogle "spotters" out there...they see it nearly everywhere they travel.  Their trip north to Oregon was no exception!

 

Hi Bogle's, 

Found another Bogle wine in an obscure general store: Mariner Market in Cannon Beach, OR.  It was not a huge wine selection, but Bogle was represented with two wines we saw.

Keep up the good work!!

 

Cheers,
Jim Marshall

NEW RELEASES
2011 Chardonnay, California

Bogle winemakers have again used new American oak, malolactic fermentation and sur-lie aging to create a multi-faceted wine that is a true crowd-pleaser!  Crisp and fresh apple and pear flavors and a soft creaminess are surrounded by toasty oak.  This wine really does have something for everybody!

 

2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, California
This classic interpretation has the best of what the cabernet grape can offer:  bright and brilliant cassis and cherry mingle with traditional black pepper and olive notes.  The spicy oak on the finish is the perfect end to this traditional wine.

 

Available:  At retailers, wine shops and restaurants nationwide!

SPRING SALAD...
Butter Lettuce with Shrimp & Dill
This easy salad serves as a great first course, or a meal all by itself.  Easily prepared ahead of time, it also makes a beautiful presentation for  a patio dinner party!                                                         (Serves 6)

Ingredients:
1 head butter lettuce
2 lbs fresh shrimp, 16-20 count size
2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
Lemon, 2 tbsp juice and 2 tsp zest
1 carrot, shredded
2 tbsp capers, drained
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup plain yogurt
Salt & pepper

 

Cooking instructions:
  • Separate and wash the lettuce leaves, keeping them whole.  Dry and set aside. 
  • Peel and clean the shrimp, making sure to devein them. 
  • Drop the shrimp carefully into a pot of boiling water, stirring slowly until they turn pink and firm up, about 4-5 minutes.  Remove from water with a slotted spoon and allow to cool.  Pat dry to remove any excess water.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the mayo and yogurt, dill, lemon juice and zest and salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Combine the shrimp, carrot, capers and yogurt sauce, careful not to rough up the shrimp meat.  Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes up to 24 hours.
  • When serving, place 5-6 lettuce leaves on a plate, overlapping to create a "nest".  Nestle about cup of the shrimp mixture on the lettuce.  NOTE:  For a first course, use 2-3 lettuce leaves and 1/2 cup of the shrimp.  You can also serve this as an app by placing one shrimp on one lettuce leaf!
OUR WINE SUGGESTIONS: 
With light fare like this, white wine is the way to go!  Try our new 2011 Sauvignon Blanc or 2011 Chardonnay with this great dish  Enjoy!!
