WHAT TO DRINK AT IL FIORELLO DURING THE HOT SUMMER MONTHS

…AND WHAT TO EAT WITH THAT FABULOUS DRINK

BEER

SONOMA SPRINGS KOLSCH

A German style beer with grains and hops imported form Germany. It drinks like a pilsner, super crisp easy to drink. A really great summer beer.
Pairs well with hamburgers and hot dogs on the back porch, or in the front yard or on the veranda.
Try this with grilled chicken. Or right as you come in the front door from a long day on the Farm.

 

Even better……

OLD ENGINE OIL

We first had this in Scotland with great friends. Since we make oil (a different kind) what better beer to have at IL Fiorello. Thick dark chocolatey viscosity. Roasted malt and a creamy mouthfeel.
You just have to try this beer to appreciate how it pairs with BBQ and a cheese plate
My, oh my — so good.

WINE

ROSE WINE in France they say AL LA PISCINE (Piscine is swimming pool in French). JUST THINK COOL ! Think ice cubes, think quaffing wine, think back porch, think cool Olive groves and lavender.
Delicious Think French and Fantastic!

ROSE OF GRENACHE A TRIBUTE TO GRACE

Santa Barbara Highlands, 2018
Grape 100 % Grenache
13.1 % alcohol
Tasting notes:
No longer relegated to shadowy bottom shelves, this once maligned pink style of wine can be enjoyed by ladies who lunch and beefcakes alike. Expect nectarines, strawberries, fennel, and a touch of clove and star anise. The Grenache grape lends a generous mouthfeel, which is lifted considerably by a pleasant acidity. A versatile wine, it drinks well by itself or accompanied by a plate of salumi, semi-aged cheese, or citrus tinged ceviche.
Try the Charcuterie Plate at IL Fiorello with a large glass of the just absolutely fantastic, delicious, pink wine.

CHENIN BLANC

Folk Machine 2017
Grape 100% Chenin Blanc
12% alcohol
Vineyard: Merrit Island
Tasting notes:
Lots of mouth-watering acid along with characteristic citrus and mineral dry character.
Vegetable dishes or salads, fish or chicken entrees and rich pungent cheeses (Epoisse is my favorite)
I am going home tonight to make a great summer pasta salad with asparagus, grilled corn, jalapeno olive oil and lots of this great wine to wash it all down.

Care to join me?

Enjoy our cool wines and beers in the hot summer days.

Ciao
Ann

We learned so much about olive oil! The tasting flight was very eye opening and a lot of fun to do with friends. We were on vacation and had a great time when we stopped in here. I wish we had a place like this where we live.

First, I want to say that they have amazing employees, they are so warm and informative! I'm very glad I came here for my first olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting. The food pairing was a wonderful surprise and the gelato was delicious, unexpectedly with the olive oil on top. Seeing the plants and nature in the back was very therapeutic. I can't wait to come here again.

You definitely don't want to miss this hidden gem!!! My friends and I were lucky enough to receive a tour of the grounds from Mary, who is extremely knowledgeable of the entire olive oil industry and organic farming. It's absolutely incredible, everything served to us is made directly from their farm. Nothing goes to waste, from the skin of the olives to the food they feed to their chickens. It's truly something you don't see anymore!! Next, we had an unbelievable tasting with Gabe, who made the tasting a blast! Even if you've done an olive tasting before, this is a completely new experience. Come to find out, I have never bought REAL extra virgin olive oil!! From the minute you step in, you feel welcomed by the entire staff. You could spend the entire relaxing and playing games in the back terrace enjoying a glass or wine or beer (YES, THEY HAVE BEER!!) Truly not to be missed and is a great get away from the typical wine tour. Thanks again for welcoming us in!!

We neglected to book in advance, but they were able to accommodate us for a tour and tasting on short notice. It was a delightful tour, with two hours of personal service for our group of three -- a great value for the price. I think they lose money on the tours and make it back at the gift shop.
