Supporting Restaurant Workers Community Foundation

Sonoma-Cutrer Donates $100,000 to the Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation
In support of the donation, Sonoma-Cutrer Russian River Ranches Chardonnay is now available for retail sale

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sonoma-Cutrer Russian River Ranches, one of the most popular restaurant Chardonnays for over 30 years, is now available for retail purchase for a limited time. Russian River Ranches Chardonnay sales will directly support Sonoma-Cutrer’s $100,000 donation to the Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation (RWCF) – an advocacy and action nonprofit created by and for restaurant workers.

“Sonoma-Cutrer Russian River Ranches Chardonnay was first introduced to restaurants in 1981 and was an immediate favorite in fine dining locations across the U.S,” said Sonoma-Cutrer Brand Manager, Tracy Thornsberry. “We are proud and humbled to provide this donation to the Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation as a “thank you” to the community who helped us build Sonoma-Cutrer’s reputation as one of the best food-pairing wines available.”

Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation is dedicated to making the restaurant industry more hospitable to everyone. The funds raised for COVID-19 relief are divided between three efforts: 50% for direct relief to individual restaurant workers, 25% for non-profit organizations serving restaurant workers in crisis, and 25% for zero-interest loans for restaurants to get back up and running.

“We’re proud to partner with Sonoma-Cutrer so we can continue to build on our efforts to help restaurant workers in crisis,” said John deBary, Co-Founder and President of the Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation. “Before the coronavirus, millions of restaurant workers lived at or below the poverty level, and now, with more than 8 million hospitality professionals out of work, the need is greater than ever.”

As Sonoma-Cutrer’s founding and flagship chardonnay, Russian River Ranches is a unique cuvée containing fruit from Sonoma-Cutrer’s estate vineyards, acclaimed as the finest in the region. True to the Russian River Ranches style, the wine is elegant and deftly balanced with a nice, bright acidity, specifically crafted to be paired with food.

Sonoma-Cutrer Russian River Ranches is available in-stores nationwide now through October.

In addition to Sonoma-Cutrer’s $100,000 donation, consumers are invited to donate to the Restaurant Worker’s Community Foundation by texting “RWCF” to 56512.

Sonoma-Julep

Main Courses

May is well known for the Kentucky Derby, and the Kentucky Derby calls for at least one mint julep. Here in wine country, we replace the bourbon in the mint julep with Chardonnay. This cocktail is just as refreshing as it is unique and perfect for sipping on a warm, sunny day.

Saffron Paella with Chicken, Andouille Sausage & Shrimp

Recipes

For this recipe use a good dry white wine, like Sonoma Cutrer’s Sonoma Coast Chardonnay to infuse the saffron, and of course a good home-made chicken stock. Depending on how much paprika and red chili flakes you add, you can manage the spice levels. Keep heat lower to taste the saffron and rice. One of the coolest parts about paella is cooking it in a paella pan. While it’s not necessary, you can always use a sauté pan, the flat bottom of the paella pan allows for even distribution of heat so that the rice cooks evenly. Plus, it happens to sit perfectly on top of a campfire.

Pair this with our Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and you will surely leave the dinner table full and happy.

Red Bell Pepper Coulis

Recipes

Coulis is a type of spread or jelly that is made from fruit or vegetable puree. In this case, from red bell peppers. This coulis is sweet and tangy with just the slightest hint of heat. It is great on its own on a cheese board, but I love it as a condiment on a sandwich. Pair with a creamy cheese like soft goat or brie and a bottle of Russian River Ranches Chardonnay.
