Earthquake Alert ~ Support Napa Wines!!! (Cabernet Day is Thursday!)

Many wineries in Napa suffered severe losses. Why not help them recover, with a purchase of Napa Valley wine for Cabernet Day (and beyond)?

Welcome back, my friend!

By now, you’ve probably heard about the devastating earthquake that smashed through Northern California two days ago.

With a magnitude of 6.0 and an epicenter just outside the city of Napa, the quake left a wide swath of destruction in its wake.

For many, the Napa Valley is just about synonymous with California wine country. And Cabernet Sauvignon is acknowleged worldwide as Napa’s premier wine varietal.

On their own, burgers go well with just about any decent red wine. The relish I made for these, with olives, roasted peppers and rosemary, steers the dish toward Cabernet Sauvignon. Recipe and how-to pix tomorrow, for Cabernet Day!

So this week, especially with Cabernet Day coming up on Thursday, why not treat yourself to a fine Napa Valley Cabernet or three in support of the wineries that suffered damage in the quake?

You can also contribute to the Disaster Relief Fund that the Napa Valley Vintners association created to provide food, shelter, medical services and more to the local community. (*Click Here* for info).

BTW, tomorrow I’ll bring you an easy recipe for a Cab-friendly burger topping. It’s an ideal, no-fuss approach to Cabernet Day. (See pic, left, to whet your appetite!)

At Hess, where two 10,000-gallon tanks and 15,000 cases were lost, wine literally poured out of an entrance to the winery.

See you again tomorrow for Cabernet Day, when I’ll, um, “flesh out” my burger recipe and its Cabernet-friendly topping.

Until then, as always,
Cheers and happy tasting ~
