November Wine Social

We invite you to join us on Tuesday, November 7, at 11:30 a.m., to sample wines from one of the Casa Garden Restaurant’s favorite vintners: Merlo Family Vineyards. To accompany your tastings are delicious hors d’oeuvres, followed by your choice of Pot Roast over Mashed Potatoes, served with Chef's Choice salad, or Asian Noodle Salad with Chicken and Vegetables. Your meal ends with Casa Garden’s yummy Eggnog Panna Cotta Parfait. The cost is $24 per person, and includes your lunch, a beverage, tax and gratuity. Your food selection and pre-payment is required. Cancellations are accepted until 10 business days prior to the lunch. Tables may be reserved for parties of six or more with one form of payment for the group.

The Merlo Family Vineyards is located along the banks of the wild and scenic South Fork of the Trinity River and at the base of South Fork Mountain, the longest contiguous ridge in the continental United States. This wholly unique setting helps create wines that speak to the power and beauty that is Hyampom Valley. Influenced by the idyllic growing season and climate of this small pocket valley, the fruit produced in the Merlo Family Vineyards expresses a strong sense of place. Based on the concept that quality wine is grown in the vineyard, a minimalist approach is taken in the cellar, allowing the wines to clearly reflect the varietal character and distinct terroir of Hyampom Valley.

Please call 916-452-2809 or click the "BUY TICKETS" button below to make your reservation. We look forward to seeing you at our last wine social of 2017 on November 7.

Farm to Fork

It doesn’t get more farm-fresh than in the Sacramento region, where the farmers grow everything from apples to zucchini and brewing companies make great beer.

August Wine Social

We invite you to join us on Tuesday, August 1, at 11:30 a.m., to sample wines from Jeremy Wine Company in Lodi. To accompany your tastings are delicious hors d’oeuvres, followed by your choice of Braised Beef Tips or Nicoise Salad, and finished with a slice of Casa Garden’s delicious Vanilla Mousse Cheesecake.

Tables may be reserved for parties of six or more with one form of payment for the group.

Jeremy Wine Co. is owned by Jeremy and Choral Trettevik. Their best memories were times when they sat down with friends and family, with a table full of delicious food and even more delicious wine. Together they began to dream of one day sipping their own wine at a table full of friends, family and food. Through determination and naiveté, they set out to achieve their dream. Their first harvest (of barely five tons) took place in some shared space inside another boutique producer. Today they harvest well over 100 tons of grapes each year in their own boutique winery, and love to share the resulting wine in their tasting room.

Please call 916-452-2809 or click the "buy tickets" button to make your reservation. We look forward to seeing you at our August wine social and lunch!

Author's Luncheon with mystery writer Catriona McPherson

Casa Garden invites you to join us on November 10, at 11:30 a.m., for a journey into the world of the “cozy” mystery, considered to be a “fun read that engages the mind.” Think of Jessica Fletcher in the series Murder, She Wrote:  a woman who’s an amateur sleuth, intuitive, bright, and oh, so curious, who just happens upon a crime and is drawn in... Our protagonist might be a writer, the owner of a B&B, a quilter, gardener, cat fancier — and always from a small town where she’s known and liked. Gentle, with no graphic violence or profanity, these mysteries have romance, intrigue, and generally favor “brains over brawn.”

Our speaker, Catriona McPherson, earned her Ph.D. in linguistics from Edinburgh University in Scotland. Before venturing into writing, she says her “proper jobs” included banking (hopeless), library work in local studies and fine art (marvelous), and a short burst in academia (miserable). Now a fulltime writer she hopes never to have a “proper job” again. Well acquainted with "cozies" having written 18 of them, Catriona will share her fascination and fun with the genre.
 
This fascinating journey begins at 11:30 a.m. with a delicious lunch of Spinach Ravioli with Sausage Ragù served with a Chef’s Choice Salad, or Carne Asada Taco Salad, and then topped by a slice of Casa Garden’s famous Pumpkin Almond Squares. The cost is $24 per person, and includes your lunch, a beverage, tax, and gratuity. Your food selection and pre-payment is required; tables may be reserved for parties of six or more with one form of payment for the group.

We look forward to seeing you on November 10!

Talbots Shopping Fling

Our September Las Noticias newsletter included an announcement about a special event occurring on September 18 at the Talbots store in the Pavilions Shopping Center. Each year the store selects a non-profit organization to support with a special donation on a specified day. This year when shoppers make purchases on the September 18 (from noon to 5 p.m.) and mention the Casa Garden, Talbots will donate 10 percent of their pre-tax bill to the Casa. Of course, the more shoppers who make purchases and mention us, the larger the donation we will receive.

Talbots has asked us to provide an estimate of how many shoppers might be shopping from the Casa. To help them with their staffing plan, we’re asking any of you who might be shopping at Talbots that day to leave a message for Nancy Bernardi at the Casa (916-452-2809). Our receptionist, Maria, will add your numbers to the tally that we will provide to the store’s management prior to the event.

Happy shopping!
