It’s Soup Season

by: Virginia Valdez Sandfer

Matchbook Picnicking Guide: Tip #2

We’ve partnered with our friends at A Well Stocked Home and Greg Chapman, our in-house foodie and Tasting Room associate, to bring you a series of picnicking tipsThis month we are celebrating SOUP Season!

Fill a thermos with a hearty soup, stew or chili such as butternut squash soup or spicy turkey chili. Baguettes and crackers are easy to travel with – serve alongside your soup. Our go-to is a bowl of Aush Soup from House of Shah! This delicious, tomato-based soup is full of flavor. Made with noodles, garbanzo beans, kidney beans, dill, mint, yogurt and seasoned ground beef, it pairs perfectly with our Tinto Rey Verdejo.

Picnic doesn’t always mean paper! Owners of A Well Stocked Home, Rosemarie and Kelly, encourage you to ditch the paper plates and opt for a decorative ceramic bowl and a wooden serving spoon. Their store lives up to its name and is chock full of beautiful and unique items to personalize your picnic!

Charcuterie is EASY!

Matchbook Picnicking Guide: Tip #1

We’ve partnered with our friends at A Well Stocked Home and Greg Chapman, our in-house foodie and Tasting Room associate, to bring you a series of picnicking tipsOur first tip is all about charcuterie!

Fall is here and with it comes a bountiful selection of seasonal produce and recipes, and of course, wine! It’s no wonder why Sacramento and Yolo County are known as the farm-to-fork and farm-to-cork capital of California. This season we encourage you to “forage” your local shops and markets for picnicking accoutrements to enjoy here at Matchbook.

Grab a selection of dried fruits, salty meats, creamy cheeses, and crisps – arrange artfully on a cheese board or plate. Don’t have time to arrange yourself? Order a cheeseboard to-go from your local cheese shop or deli.

Browse the gallery below and be inspired to UP your picnicking game. Get creative with unique baskets, totes, tea towels, wooden bowls and more – all available at A Well Stocked Home, located in the heart of Historic Downtown Woodand!
