Taste Virtually with Priest Ranch

Amidst pivoting our usual wine tasting practices and bringing them outside of the tasting room, we carefully crafted two Virtual Tastings you can enjoy from wherever you are. For 2021, we updated these experiences and are thrilled to share our new offerings and food pairings you can savor!

A Red and A White

Are you new to Priest Ranch wines or looking to reacquaint yourself? Then this is the wine tasting for you. Our latest Red & White Kit includes:

  • One 750ml bottle of 2018 Grenache Blanc
  • One 750ml bottle of 2016 Double Barrel
  • Digital tech sheets
  • Recipes and suggested food pairings
  • Your virtual tasting with Priest Ranch Wine Specialist
  • NEW: $40 eGift Card provided at the end of the virtual tasting, redeemable on any wines in our online wine shop
  • $5 flat-rate shipping

When you purchase your experience, we'll contact you to set up your tasting, or you can simply book online. The more, the merrier - so don't forget to invite your friends and family!

Food Pairings

With two of our classic wines under your belt, we're happy to share two of our favorite pairings. 

Enjoy our Grenache Blanc with a Grilled Four Cheese and Onion Pizza or Street Tacos. The acidity in this white wine accents the cheese in the pizza and balances the hint of spice in the tacos. Looking for an appetizer instead? We love Brillat-Savarin or Humboldt Fog Goat Cheese with our favorite crackers.

Next, pair our Double Barrel red blend with Korean Spice Bacon. The 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Malbec blend complements the unique spice of the Korean seasoning. Or, if you're enjoying it with a cheese board, our team's favorites are aged Gouda and Flagship Reserve by Beecher's.

The Cab Comparison

With this experience, we invite you to taste two distinct Cabernet Sauvignons. The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of fruit from over 20 estate blocks, while the 2018 Snake Oil uses fruit from only three blocks. Taste and learn how this affects the final product while exploring these wines virtually with a Priest Ranch Wine Specialist. The Cab Comparison Kit includes:

  • One 750ml bottle of 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon 
  • One 750ml bottle of 2018 Snake Oil
  • Digital tech sheets
  • Recipes and suggested food pairings
  • Your virtual tasting with Priest Ranch wine specialist
  • NEW: $60 eGift Card provided at the end of the virtual tasting, redeemable on any wines in our online wine shop
  • $5 flat-rate shipping

Share this offer with your friends, and we can create a virtual tasting party online. If you have a group of 10 or more, let us know, and we can schedule a private tasting for you and your family or friends with our Winemaker, Craig Becker.

Food Pairings

For your next dinner, our 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon pairs beautifully with a mouthwatering Slow Smoked & Grilled Bone-in Ribeye. When it comes to the ideal pairing of ribeye and a hearty red, and our Cab is always up for the challenge!

For a cheese accompaniment, try Mimolette, aged cheddar, or Gouda.

Our Snake Oil is bold and full of flavor, which pairs with another one of our favorites - a Garlic Crusted Prime Beef Tenderloin. Anyone who's been to one of our harvest events at the estate knows that this is our winemaker Craig Becker's signature dish.  The beef maintains a richness with the fat and salt, while the Snake Oil Cab has just the right amount of tannin to keep it in check.  Of course, if you're not in the mood to cook, try a simple cheese pairing with Midnight Moon or Barely Buzzed cheeses.
